about

We’re excited to announce the second Mixpak release from London-via St. Louis producer Mr One Hundred – Calypso Fugitive. Building on the work of his first record for Mixpak, Palm Tree Destruction, Mr One Hundred continues to play with the boundaries of soca music, exploring frenetic rhythms and spirited, uplifting crescendos.

A product of his storied history in dance music, Calypso Fugitive finds Mr One Hundred exploring the fruitful regions between soca and Detroit techno à la Juan Atkins and Omar S. With soca as a container for his musical ideas and influences, Mr One Hundred is making Caribbean-inspired music that pushes against neatly defined genres, employing an overtly dubbed out palette and halftime rhythmic elements to great effect. Steel pans, whistles and cowbells pepper the slow builds that drop into percussion-drenched breakneck euphoria.

Perfect for a sweaty basement club or a carnival set, Calypso Fugitive plays with everything that soca inspires, in a uniquely Mr One Hundred way.
