Welcome to the latest in my occasional series of mixtapes taking a wander through my listening habits. This one kicks off with a meeting of old and new school De La Soul then journeys through some classic hip hop tracks (inspired by my good Twitter friend Michael Carty) from the likes of Gza, Q-Tip and a triplet from The Beastie Boys. There's some bang up to date tunes from Rome Fortune (produced by Four Tet) and the amazing "Your Love Weighs a Tonne" remix of Nostalgia 77 by Ambassadeurs before a diversion into some awe-inspiring 90s drum n bass from Makoto. A cheeky unreleased (as far as I know) banger from Maddslinky that he gave me straight off his PC several years ago takes us into a Ballistic Brothers classic I rediscovered recently, then it's back into 2014 with starRo and Hidden Orchestra rounding things off. Hectic and eclectic as ever - hope you enjoy.
