For the latest of our WhoSampled interview cloudcast series we spoke with DJ Amir, one half of legendary digging and mixtape duo Kon & Amir, record collector, DJ and label boss at 180 Proof Records. Speaking over a slightly unreliable phone line whilst on tour in Europe, we spoke with Amir ahead of his London Boiler Room appearance. Amir speaks about his world famous 'On Track' mixtape series, working as A&R at Fatbeats, working with J Dilla, Common and others giving behind the scenes stories on some classic releases. Amir also speaks about his more recent compilation albums and his current label project, 180 Proof Records.
