Mixx created on 08/22/2012
This is a straight vanity mixx for me, so even though I'd never play this in a club, it will probably be one of my favorites. Why wouldn't I play it in a club - because it's basically a 45 minutes of the same beat.
hold on, whaaaat?
I while back I noticed a lot of songs either directly copied or had the same beat structure as the Old School classic: The Message. then I noticed some more, and then I was playing around mixing them together. Until I really got into mixing them, I didn't realize how influential that song really was - practically all of these songs just copied a loop directly and built their song off of that loop.
So I just kept the beatz looping and threw in a bunch of songs that are out of date - but I loved throwing in AZ, Mind Over Matter, Brand New Funk, Candy Rain, etc. - personal favorites that weren't big hits.
