One for the hip hop heads


Recommended Posts

Been a while since I posted a mix. Knocked this up this morning. First time I have used SoundCloud and zshare so fingers crossed the links work.


Recorded on the ones and twos using all original vinyl. I am rusty as hell on the decks so no audio gymnastics, just a whole bunch of bangers. As usual it is encoded at 128 kbps, if you want to hear these tracks sounding richer and deeper get digging for the originals!

Fucking top drawer shep, I'm definitely downloading that. I seem to remember you posted a UK hiphop mix in the old Mixes thread which I still listen to.

Forgot to post that I downloaded this t'other day. Nothin but the hits, nothin but the hits, nothin but the muthafuggin hits. Excellent work. Forgot how much I love the beat to "Boom" as well. Hard to get that Craig David remix out of my head when I hear it but Royce absolutely murders that track and it does the trick after a verse or two.


I know there was a ton of Primo and GangStarr on there but is there any chance of a 100% DJ Premier mix? The man's a genius.

I will have a look into doing a Premo mixtape next time I find myself with a free afternoon. In the meantime here is a Rec-One Best Of Premo tape that was doing the rounds a while back - http://www.zshare.net/audio/5799220601ab1ddc/


In the meantime I thought I'd mention one of my other little musical sidelines. I play a fortnightly show of jazz, funk, soul, disco and whatever else floats my boat on an internet radio station I help run. I normally target it towards B-Boys and sample spotters as that is how I first fell in love with all that stuff. This weekend was a little different though, I spent Sunday enjoying a six hour session from Norman Jay to celebrate 50 years of Motown (in the absense of an official Motown 50th Celebration over here - apparently one of their artists passed away and their marketing muscle was directed in that direction instead) and was inspired to turn my show over to Motown classics and the odd out-the-hat rarity -




Marvin Gaye - A Funky Space Reincarnation

Eddie Kendricks - Girl You Need A Change Of Mind

Eddie Kendricks - He's A Friend

Michael Jackson - We're Almost There

Older, more representative of my normal playlist shows are also archived on the site.



Please note this is a radio show with my dulcets rather than a straight up mix but I would love to know what you guys think. The show can be downloaded as a podcast or using the listen again feature, I am loathe to link directly to the mix as I am trying to build numbers and need the podcast stats. I am also in charge of content on the funk & disco channel on that site so if anyone has the collection and the time to record a weekly/fortnightly show in the privacy of their own home along jazz/funk/soul lines let me know.


Apologies for the shill, I hope this hasn't broken too many rules as this is most definitely a not for profit venture from me and it just a part of my continued evangelical zeal for spreading the word on the music I love.

You're providing free downloads of musical goodness and, as you say, you're not looking to make money from these plugs, so I see no reason to move it to classifieds. No one has complained so far anyway...


Many thanks for that link too, will download it this evening.
