After a surprising and impressive performance at the Red Bull Big Tune beat competition last month (check out the battle with T-Mos here), DJ Vajra has even more things up his sleeve this summer. The superstar DJ announced that he and Othello (of Lightheaded and the Hip-Hop IS Music label) that they will be releasing their collaborative album, The Required Taste, this coming fall. The duo just a signed a deal with Colemine Records for U.S. distribution and Mic Life Records for release in Japan. In addition to that, Vajra also contributed scratches and cuts for the track "Patience," from the album Soul Power, the latest effort from Raashan Ahmad of Crown City Rockers. Don't have cash to cop any of these projects? Rest easy. Vajra is giving a free mix he did a while back called Satellite Radio. Download the free mix after the jump.
