"Through Hip-hop Space and Time" might throw some people off. It's mostly hip-hop from the late 90's-2000s; tracks from guys like MF Doom, Talib Kweli, madlib, Dead Prez, The Roots, etc. But the reference to the journey through time is best reflected in the sampling these talents featured.
All of the music on this mix (40+ minutes of straight music, no talking, just beats and rhymes) is rich in samples - from my own beats, to those of Onra, the legendary Madlib, J Dilla w/ the Handsome Boy Modeling School, and all of the featured beat-makers. On this particular mix/set, I focused on mashing up some of my favorite MCs of all-time w/ my favorite beat-makers, so Kweli x Blockhead is a dream project for me, or Dan the Automator's Bombay the Hard Way x MF Doom. Some of them were more obvious matches, like Doom w/ a Quasimoto instrumental (MadVillain returns!) or WU x El Michels. I also thoroughly enjoyed mixing them with my own beats.
I hope the output is enjoyable for all!
