Carhartt WIP Radio welcomes the young label Counterweight, run by DJ Devastate, a producer from South Sweden that started as a DJ in the late nineties and has already released records with legends like Kutmasta Kurt and Masta Ace. Inspired by classic boom-bap hip hop, funk and jazz, he launched his label Counterweight last year to feature fresh music with the emphasis on soulful sounds to promote young and skilled newcomers. For Carhartt WIP Radio he has prepared a show that delivers unreleased and upcoming Counterweight tracks including exclusive music from producers like Max I Million, Suff Daddy and DJ Large, back catalogue releases from DJ Devastate himself as well as some remixes from back in the day. His mix showcases many different genres, from smooth instrumentals and jazz, to more classic boom-bap hip hop, giving the listener a slice of the Counterweight sound and what to expect in the future.
