The DJBooth Top Prospects EP (Vol. 1)

Posted 2 years ago

A month ago we announced our new Top Prospects series, aimed at identifying some of the best new talent in the game.

Now, we're proud to close out our first group of artists with the inaugural Top Prospects EP, featuring exclusive music from Janine & The Mixtape, Mick Jenkins, Michael Christmas and Russ. Two songs, the acoustic version of Janine's Hold Me and Jenkins' DJBooth Freestyle, Steam, were posted previously as DJBooth exclusives, while Russ and Christmas' contributions are hitting the internet for the first time now.

Be sure to check out our in-depth profiles of each artist, and let us know who you think should make our next foursome of Prospects. Enjoy...
