About the show

This upload was 1st in the Funk chart , 1st in the Soul chart , 1st in the Rap chart and 4th in the Hip Hop chart .

Today (April 7th 2017) marks the 25th anniversary of Das EFX's debut LP 'Dead Serious'. Executive produced by EPMD, the LP shares its sonic template with Hit Squad productions of the era from the likes of Redman, K Solo and EPMD themselves. Densely layered samples are the order of the day, classic drum breaks, P-Funk basslines and layer upon layer of atmospherics and vocal snippets all appearing in spades. It's the album's vocal style however that defined it, with 'Diggedy-Das's playfully unique and subsequently much imitated style of slang being the LP's most memorable feature. In keeping with tradition, we're pleased to present this exclusive mixtape of album tracks, alt versions and original sample material in collaboration Wax Poetics, mixed by Chris Read (MusicOfSubstance).
