DJ Kryptic shared with Our Today his thoughts on the evening, saying, “It’s been a long time coming, I put a lot of work into this mix, the concept came out a year ago in the pandemic; I wanted to put out a body of work but it didn’t feel like the right time cause I was still building up traction.”

“Now that I’m in a space with a little more creative freedom, I decided I’ll put this piece together and put it out for people and what way to do it than by keeping it at a free event where any one can come to,” he continued.

Kryptic explained that his goal is for his mixtape is to expand the reach possible for Jamaican djs.
