'De La Soul Is Dead' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

'De La Soul Is Dead' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Chart positions

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

This Weekend (14th May 2016) marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of De La Soul's classic sophomore album 'De La Soul is Dead'. Following in the footsteps of 1989's sample heavy '3 Feet High and Rising', the album once again delves into unconventional and varied sample material from disco to spoken word via rock, jazz and soul with producer Prince Paul placing a unique spin on all of the above. In celebration of the album’s 25th birthday, we’ve teamed up with Wax Poetics to present an exclusive mixtape containing tracks from the album, remixes and, of course, original sample material used in the album’s production.
