The Boston-based producer mixes Cousin Stizz, Mozzy, Black EL and more.
Ryan Durkin, better known as simply Durkin, has been an important part of the Boston landscape for some time, channeling his production skills into solo tracks and notable collaborations with rappers like Black EL, Jordan Bratton and Michael Christmas.
Now, local crew Steady Leanin’ has teamed up with the producer and DJ to show off a diverse, cloudy mix of overlooked rap gems from Boston and beyond.
An hour long, the mix collects up tracks from Boston’s Cousin Stizz, Michael Christmas and Black EL with low-key bangers from Mozzy, Kolyon, Sauce Walka and one of FACT’s rappers to watch in 2017, Koran Streets.
It’s a testament not only to Durkin’s skill as a DJ but also Steady Leanin’s curatorial nous.
