Between 2002 and 2004 I was one of the mix DJs on the BBC’s station for “new black music”, 1 Xtra, and throughout 2004 I was a regular feature on the Saturday night mix show. For this mix, I’ve sewn together a handful of the highlights from my appearances on that show. The resulting mix, the second in the “Not necessarily …” series, was broadcast on DJ Food’s ‘Solid Steel’ Radio Show in 2005. As with the first, it’s predominantly hip hop accapellas over pretty heavily layered beats from a range of genres and tempos although a little more hip hop orientated than the first.
