THE DIARY (World's Greatest Rap Megamix) (2007)

My most popular mixtape to date. Downloaded tens of thousands of times, podcasted and broadcast to a million plus people worldwide. A chronological mix of rap's landmark recordings by order of release from 1979-2007. 801 records in the blend!

(Andy Smith - Portishead)

“So deep … Incredible stuff” (DJ Yoda – Genuine Records)

“A tour de force through the history of hip hop. A unique view of hip hop’s golden moments” (DJ Food - Ninja Tune / Solid Steel)

“Bloody great! One of the best hip hop mixes I’ve heard in years.” (DJ Format – Genuine Records)

" A mixtape king no question." (DJ Ollie Teeba - The Herbaliser)

“Megamixing at its finest… Original and essential!” (DJ Plus One – The Scratch Perverts)

Nice work Chris, just realised this was your mix - was big back in '07 thanks for posting up here.
