Vital London-based hip hop selectors, Livin' Proof have developed a knack for getting the party started.
Matching a near encyclopaedic knowledge of rap history with a flair for boosting the mood of anyone in the vicinity, the crew have spent the past seven years throwing some of the best events around.
2014 alone has seen Livin' Proof joined by the likes of A$AP Ferg, GEazy, Schoolboy Q, Bishop Nehru and more, while Danny Brown hooked up with the team for a rare London show.
Reaching their milestone seventh birthday, Livin' Proof residents Budgie, Khalil, Rags and Snips have teamed up for a brand new mix.
A potent, heady brew of hip hop beats, it provides ample demonstration - if any were still needed - that Livin' Proof is very much ahead of the game.
Here's an introductory note:
