What could you possible say that does justice to DJ Muro's story? As one of the world's most-respected DJs, this Japanese cratedigging legend has long been regarded as the man to go to when you're putting on a show. You don't get named The King of Digging without being able to back it up in the form of thousands of rare records.
We went to see Muro as part of our Spine TV Tokyo City Series in 2011, where he explained his personal love of 45s and let us see some of his immense record collection. And to follow on from where we left off, he dropped an exclusive 45 compilation for Spine Radio: a serious journey through the crates, featuring over an hour of classic hip-hop tracks – but all taken from UK pressings on 45! De La Soul, Queen Latifah, EPMD, Public Enemy, Gang Starr… you name it, it's on here. Some of these records are seriously difficult to find on 7" vinyl.
