This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while – a mix of breaks and bits from children’s records. No track list I’m afraid but it includes records sampled by De La Soul, MF Doom, Ultramagnetic MCs, Eric B and Rakim, Beatnuts, Prince Paul, Mr Scruff, DJ Shadow and some others.
I don’t really know if this works or if it’s unlistenable toot – let me know what you think.
Another good mix for you all here – I’ll let Fred tell you about it:
Yet another diggintape from me. Fresh for the summer of 2K11.. This mix contains a bunch of different musical styles, and the records comes from all around the world. India, Brazil, UK, France, Norway, USA, Japan, Belgium, Spain, Turkey, Czech, Carribean & Canada. Mostly downtempo/mellow raregroove type stuff.
Some of them are sped up, some of them are edited down a little bit, just cause I like it that way. I’ve also added a little percussion + synthesizers to a couple of them.
Email me if you wanna know the name of a couple of tunes:

Hip Hop was 38 years old this week so I’m posting up this mix from Sigma to mark the occasion. Also check out this interview with Coke La Rock, Kool Herc’s MC, that’s on egotripland.
This is a multitracked mix of hip-hop from 1979, the year that the first hip-hop track came out. My intention here was to feature every hip-hop track released in 1979 and I’ve come pretty close to doing that, although there may be some debate over the year of release of one or two of these songs. The mix is multitracked and I attempted to put it together in a way that would please people who appreciate the technical side of mixing, as well as those that just want to hear some great tunes. Whether you’re an old school hip-hop head or you just want a history lesson in how hip-hop sounded when it was first available on wax, there’s something for you to enjoy here!

I’m a record collector and DJ that’s known for playing a selection of hip hop, funk, disco, jazz and whatever else I can get my mitts on. Over the years I’ve made appearances at a number of clubs and bars across the nation and have played alongside lots of people you’ve heard of but won’t list here. I was also part of the Off The Hook Soundsystem, which ran a pretty good hip hop and funk night in the first half of the '00s.
What you’ll find on here is a collection of my mixtapes for you to download for your listening enjoyment. I’ll also put other stuff up that I think you might like so dig in and enjoy yourselves.
