Hit the Gym With the 'Freshman 15 Mix' From DJ Duo KickRaux


Not much is known about the DJ and production duo KickRaux. Their most cohesive body of work so far is their Harriet Thugman mixtape, a collection of trap-tinged party tracks released on July 25th. Based on a series of questions the production team answered via email about their MTV Hive guest mix, we do know that they're very young. “As music freshmen ourselves, we decided to do a ‘Back to School Freshmen' mix dedicated to what’s probably about to be the most awesome semester ever,” they tell Hive. “Clocking in at 48 minutes, this mix is the perfect playlist for your workout for that freshmen 15 weight problem. And yea, you should definitely lift bro.” Their easygoing sense of humor comes through in their set, which flaunts a style of trap-hop that lies somewhere between ghetto bass and Girl Talk-style mashups. “To sweeten the deal, we decided to debut something extra rare, a new Ace Hood single with multi-platinum producer Reazy Renegade titled ‘Fvck3d Up.’” Excuse us while we fire up the treadmill.
