Playing tracks by
Aceyalone, Devin The Dude, Mr Scruff, Steve Bug & Tanzmann, Bassnectar vs. Breakbeat Buddah and more.
I recorded this mix in December 2009, immediately after recording a 2 hour funk & disco mix for a NYE bash I was to play at. I was relaxed, loose, and this went really well.
It starts off party hiphop with Devin, then into a dope joint from Manchester's finest Mr Scruff, then into Bassnectar, then 8 Bars of Fire which is a banging UK Hiphop joint, then into a killer beat from RJD2 with one of my favourite MC's, Aceyalone, riding the beat.
Then it goes off into a darker instrumental section, with an awesome beat from Ghost out of Auckland, with old school rave flavour. Then I drop an awesome track by Few Nolder, which I can't even classify, before finishing on "Shick" by Steve Bugg, minimal techno I think?
All of the mix rides around 115 bpm, and if this kind of music was dropped on a dope soundsystem with a good dancefloor, for me it would be going off. I honestly believe this is a slept on mix which fails to be easily categorised. So, if you're open-minded, enjoy...
