About the show
Playing tracks by
Nostalgia 77, DJ Shadow, Beastie Boys, Makoto, De La Soul Feat. Common and more.
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.
