Some time ago, Urban Vault got in touch to ask me to put a UK hip hop mix together. It has been a lot of fun getting back into a movement close to my heart. I used to rhyme way back before I started DJ'ing - I'm sure that DJ Hocus Pocus in our band was one of the catalysts that got me into mixing &scratching in the first place!
It's been a great journey going back through the archives of my collection, I've rediscovered some of my favourite tracks which I'd almost forgotten about, which I've tried to reflect in the mix. I've left out more than I have included, in fitting with the wealth of UK hip hop in 2014 - a revolution since I first remember hearing about the anomalies of being an MC in the UK.
So I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Thanks to Giles for putting me on and providing a great platform for hip hop in the UK! Maybe there's room for Volume 3? :)
