The most recent installment sees the swiftly-rising act hand selecting all of the tracks on Soundcloud that inspired him to start making music at the start of his career, showcasing his diverse range of influences in the process. It mix begins with a commanding rap track that falls into a delectable mix of hip-hop and other low-end music that culminated in Ekali’s artstic vision. Per the full tracklist he posted on Twitter, and it spans from Justin Bieber remixes to his own collaborations with Aywy.

The third session of Ekali‘s SiriusXM Insomniac Channel’s radio session called Awakening Radio has just landed, and this session is particularly unique. The Canadian producer states he hand selected most of the releases for the session from producers who have little to no SoundCloud following, yet are releasing fantastic music. For those who like discovering unknown and up and coming producers, this radio session is just the place.

The mix features a variety of ear-perking remixes and mashups of mainstream tracks with a side of enamoring originals. He of course sprinkles in releases of his own — aptly-timed, considering he’s currently on his Crystal Eyes tour in honor of the release of his full album of the same name. The next stop of his tour will be in Denver, Colorado, where he has two back to back shows on the 23 and 24. Ekali has been dropping unreleased OWSLA ID’s on his tour, most recently dropped Skrillex‘s collaboration with JOYRIDE before its full release.
