De La Soul 'Buhloone Mindstate' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

De La Soul 'Buhloone Mindstate' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global funk chart, 1st in the global soul chart, 1st in the global jazz chart and 2nd in the global hip hop chart.

De La Soul's 3rd studio album Buhloone Mindstate was released on 21st September 1993 and provided another step change in the celebrated band's constant evolution. As the group's last album produced by long time production partner Prince Paul, the LP was no less musically ambitious than previous efforts. Sample material, as before, touches on Soul, Funk, Rock & Jazz, this time with the incorporation of some guest vocalists and notably live instrumentation from jazz/funk legends and frequent James Brown collaborators Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. The result is an album that, even if not their best selling, certainly stands up to its critical acclaim 25 years after release. "It might blow up, but it won't go pop" as the album's mantra states.

In celebration of the album's 25th anniversary we're pleased to present in collaboration with Wax Poetics this exclusive mixtape of album cuts, remixes, interview snippets and of course original sample material, mixed by Chris Read.
