The Mixup is Detroit Bar’s hip-hop weekly party night, and resident DJ Bianca G (and former Stacks employee, if you still miss that spot) is nothing if not a grinder, with tastes that run to both the unassailably classic―Snoop, Biggie, De La Soul―and the records that will be classics in another few years if they don’t qualify already. Her Mixup Wednesday is a free spin through three decades (and more) of hip-hop with well-timed detours into the kind of pop songs that never need to go away. Scheduled special guests could mean that anyone from the venerable Abstract Workshop crew (Exile? Delmos Wade?) might stop in for a visit and a set.
