Digable Planets 'Reachin' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the #jazz chart, 1st in the #funk chart, 2nd in the #rap chart and 4th in the #hip hop chart.

This weekend marked the 25th Anniversary of Digable Planets debut LP 'Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space)', an album as memorable for its rich jazz-heavy sample material as it is for its evocation of the post-civil rights era poetry. The lead single 'Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)' won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a duo or group in 1994 and the LP is frequently lauded as a classic of the era, largely due its innovative use of jazz. Producer Ishmael 'Butterfly' Butler, has stated the group's 'jazz group' image was not initially intentional and that the group's sound evolved from the resources they had available - his father's record collection, which was mostly jazz. In celebration of the album's 25th year, we've teamed up with Wax Poetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album tracks, alt versions, interview snippets and of course original sampled material, mixed by Chris Read.
