About the show

Playing tracks by

DJ Scizzahandz, Crooklyn Clan/Clubheadz, Kan-Ah-Biss Massive , Rollifingaz, Crooklyn Clan/Coffee Breaks and more.

My last couple of mixes/mashups got a good response (thanks) – I’ll put up a few more some time, but I think I’ll leave it to those that REALLY know how to do things.
I was introduced to the AV8 label in the 90's by staff at the now-defunct Ruby Red Records in Wolverhampton.

Their brand of cut & paste hip hop struck a chord with me & sat well in our sets at Stump Juice. They've always managed to get the party started as well as throw up the surprise. Many self-proclaimed hip-hop 'headz' who sniggered when we'd play house especially Armand Van Helden, would then show approval or crowd the set when we dropped an AV8 beat completely unaware it could also be an AVH track. Indeed 'The Boogie Monster' has quite a back catalogue with the label.

I was still looking though their material at (the now also defunct) Tempest records in Birmingham.

This is a tribute to Tempest, Ruby Red as well as this unique US label - 20 years on & they still have beats to spare.

Get dem handz up....

I'm afraid we may have hit a point of confusion here.
This mix is a straight, vinyl only, & I used my collection of 12-inch singles from AV8.
They've done most of the hard work for me, using (I assume samplers, either hardware or software) on their tracks.
Many of the tracks are at roughly the same tempo & the various DJs used the popular cuts of the day,so the beats and/or production on a lot of them will be familiar.
I re-worked these records into a DJ mix, as opposed to a remix. I did use some 'basic' scratch/mix tricks to put my own stamp on it.
So in effect, as I said in the introduction, it's more of a tribute mix than a remix.
