Pete Rock & CL Smooth 'Mecca & The Soul Brother' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

Pete Rock & CL Smooth 'Mecca & The Soul Brother' 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.

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 www.mixcloud.com/WaxPoetics to present this exclusive mixtape of album tracks, remixes, and of course original sample material, mixed by www.mixcloud.com/ChrisReadsubstance.
