A few weeks ago, AbdeCaf contributed a mix to The 405’s Plastic Platform series that revealed an affinity for Clams Casino, Drake, and The Weeknd. Now, the Florida-based producer has returned with another choice selections of cuts exclusively for Consequence of Sound as he preps for his stint as DJ-in-residence at our CoSigns day party at South by Southwest.
Included in the mix is a song born from a previous CoSigns event. At this past fall’s CMJ Music Marathon, I stood in the crowd next to AbdeCaf as Conveyor took the stage at out CoSigns October Party. “These guys are awesome,” he screamed in my ear. “And I feel like everyone in here is sleeping on them! I wanna do a remix for these guys!” Lo and behold, four months later, and a remix of “Yes, Some Things Are So Heavy” appears on this very tracklist.
Also included in the mix is an Adele-Daft Punk mashup, some James Blake, a pinch of Arcade Fire, and a track AbdeCaf cooked up with his #MAGICALPOWERS cohert Ptolemy (under a new moniker: your majesty) for A$AP Lotto. Check it all out below, and stop by CoSigns II to hear him spin some of the mix live.
