1773 - Mixed Signals (Vol. 1)

1773 - Mixed Signals (Vol. 1)

label: on Bandcamp, 1773
released: 08 May 2010
style: hip-hop, instrumentals

After some leaks, 1773 released its anticipated first release of 2010: ‘Mixed Signals (Vol. 1)‘. It’s hosted by Donwill (of Tanya Morgan) and presented by The Find Magazine, Ground Lift Media and Jugrnaut. Guest appearances on the mixtape are done by MC Sick (of Pseudo Slang), Add-2, Othello (of Lightheaded) and much more.
Typically, 1773 limits guest appearances to 2-3 per release, but for ‘Mixed Signals’ the fellas decided it was time to up the ante. “Chicago gets branded as ‘Haterville’ but on this release we aim to transcend any superficial boundaries created by that moniker”, explains MC Just Jay of 1773.
Originally the idea was to release ‘Mixed Signals’ as one mixtape, but the overwhelming response from guest MCs necessitated two installments. Next to that, the Chicago based collective is going to release ‘Sound Soulstice‘ and some other brand new projects.
