I've decided to record this mixtape because of soon arrival of Large Professor to Moscow. I am really looking forward and crazy excited about the party which will be on Sept 14th at 16 Tons club.
As for me, Large Pro is one of the main figures of 90s hip-hop and his "Breaking Atoms" album was one of my first introduction to funk music. It sounds extremely funky and heavy, and helped me to investigate connection between hip-hop, funk and jazz music.
As many others I was introduced to 70s music via hip-hop and this mixtape a kind of a journey through this introduction. First album of Jungle Brothers, Spoonie Gee album produced by Marley Marl, Ultramagnetic MCs, with which help I start buying James Brown 45s, etc. All that music is big part of myself story, and if You wish to read it, you can go to my website and check my story, unfortunately it's on russian only.
