New mix! Hailing from San Fransisco, Navid Izadi brings multiple genres together in his tracks. His list of influences always resonating through his productions. But his creative output doesn’t stop there. Besides Dj’ing and producing groovy tracks Navid Izadi has done a few vocal features on tracks from the likes of Soul Clap and PillowTalk. He writes all of the lyrics himself, by the way.
His Feelin’ Purple EP, which was released on Wolf+Lamb Records, is the outcome of Izadi’s broad variation of influences. The catchy title track has a nu-disco meets mellow funk feeling on it and his vocals add some R&B flavor to the mix. With a low pace on the tracks, the EP just makes you want to vibe out. But it also includes Soul Clap’s interpretation of the title track, which is a little more up-tempo and has rough edges on the drums. With other releases on Soul Clap – and Touch Of Class Records the multi-talented Izadi is one to keep an eye out for.
On November 18th Navid will be feautured on No Regular Play’s Endangered Species Remixes Vol I, with his remix to Won’t Quit by No Regular Play.
His unique taste and track selection on this mixtape will soothe your ears on this dreary Thursday. Thank God it’s almost weekend.
