BBE is, I can say with some confidence, my favourite record label of recent years in terms of consistency and quality of output. From modern day artists such as Dilla and Pete Rock to compilations of obscure and forgotten gems, it's a label that covers a lot of ground and does it all with style. So it almost goes without saying that putting this mix together was an absolute pleasure. The toughest thing was not deciding what to include but what to leave out. I probably could have made a dozen mixtapes with the pile of records I pulled out before getting started. It would have been simple enough to produce a complete mix of music from any one of the label's many genres but I wanted to try and represent the label's full range. What I ended up with is a fairly quick paced mix which passes through modern soul, hip hop, funk, boogie, disco, a touch of house, reggae, nu jazz, vocal jazz and dancefloor jazz pretty much in that order with a few little surprises along the way. Hope you enjoy!



wow what an awesome mix!

What an incredible mix, from hip hop to reggae, and liquid dnb. Wow, it takes mad skill to mix all those together. Respect
