About the show

Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the Funk chart , 1st in the Soul chart , 1st in the Jazz chart and 2nd in the Hip Hop chart .

Among the many greats of hip hop's golden era currently celebrating their 25th year, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's debut long player 'Mecca & the Soul Brother' is rightly considered a standout - frequently lauded as one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. The album owes its distinctive sound in no small part to the eclectic and inspired choice of sample material. In addition to drawing on sampled staples popularised in the late 80s (James Brown, The J.B.'s), the album references jazz heavily and was pioneering in its use of layered samples, creating coherent tracks from small snippets of multiple disparate sources. In keeping with tradition, we've teamed up with Wax Poetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album tracks, remixes, and of course original sample material, mixed by Chris Read (MusicOfSubstance).

Thanks for all the great Music. This brings back loads of memories. I haven`t listened to those songs for years, my record collection is long sold and I usually listen to other stuff nowadays. Still I consider the 90ies to be a decade like no other concerning rap sound. Man, have I been crazy about music back in those days. I'm glad someone brings those songs back to my mind.
