Used Vol 1 – 6: Original breaks mixes from @iamfakeblood

Fake Blood has recently put out the final volume of his breaks series and I’ve got to say it’s tip top. He’s going through a lot of the originals to all your favourite raps, mainly from the 90s era and doing nice doubles to catch those special bits. I like to think I know breaks but there’s a few things on here that are new to me. All originals, no compilations. Respect to Fake Blood.

Library Selection – Recorded at Reel Music, QUAD – Nov 4 2011

This is a live recording of a short set of Library music from the night of soundtrack music I do alongside DJ Wax On at Quad in Derby. Library music is commercial music that is used in television programmes – the stuff I’m playing could be heard in things like The New Avengers, Prisoner Cell Block H, The Sweeney or whatever – but this music wasn’t available to the public until the 90s when these records were getting rediscovered and put on compilations and what not.

Some of the mixes are a litte bit ropey but it’s still a good listen.

‘No I.D. On The Track Let The Story Begin…’ Mixed by Rob Pursey & Superix

I could quite easily fill this blog with all the mixes from Southern Hospitality. This one I’ve been listening to all week and had to be shared here. Superix and Rob run through a load of classic No I.D. productions, old to new. You can’t go wrong with this. Seriously.
