70min mix & blend that I originally put together for a Selecta! night at Relevant Records. DJ Crump asked me to bring the reggae goodness, but I couldn't help but bring them the other side of the Abbott too with the hip hop flavour in the second half. Recorded live, all vinyl, one take on the Vestax PMC-05 Pro II (yeah), then multi chanelled live back into the computer with the Serato fx drops. The mix splits nicely between the roots reggae, dancehall, lovers & one drop that I need in my ears every day, and the boombap hiphop to represent for the soundsystems & DJs keeping the music alive in the REAL world with REAL skills. New & classic tunes from shops in Cambridge, London, Amsterdam and San Francisco and beyond, this traces my steps checking records & live showcases over the last year. Support the artists you love & go to their shows!! Respect to all the DJ's keeping this thing alive!! Big up DJ Manslaughter & RIP Sean Price. This is the Two Sides of the Abbott
