NEW MIX: CAR BOOT ADVENTURES – Original Samples Mix for @BreakinBreadLDN Podcast

CBA cover

Back in the mid 90s I got DJ Muro’s King of Diggin’ mixtape and it blew my mind – it was a mix of rare original samples that had been sampled on hip hop records using only original pressings – no compilations, no bootlegs. This was back when there was no internet, no youtube, no whosampled, so the effort put in to get these records was pretty astounding.

What I’ve done is a tribute to Muro’s tapes and others like it from Kon & Amir and Ken Sport where I mix up original samples (and some unused gems) that I’ve found over the years from scouring through car boot sales, charity shops and thrift stores worldwide. Expect to hear the originals from people like MF Doom, Kanye, De La, 9th Wonder and so much more… here it is – Car Boot Adventures aka Oxfam Jams aka Chazza Shop Gold!

Ubiquity Beats – A selection of Roy Ayers sampling rap classics mixed by DJ Hudson

Roy Mix 800x800-01

Roy Ayers is doing shows in the UK in December (details here) and to mark the occasion I picked out a few of my favourite rap records that have used samples from his records and productions. This is an off the cuff and live mix and isn’t definitive by any stretch but it’s all good fun.



Hudson’s House Breaks 2


Last year I did the first part of House Breaks and afterwards I thought there’s quite a few records that didn’t make it on the mix, so a part 2 needed to be done. If you’re not familiar with the first one it’s a mix of records that have been sampled on house and club tracks by the likes of DJ Sneak, Daft Punk, Todd Terry and more, and this continues the fun. Check out the full track list with WhoSampled links to what they’ve been used on (WhoSampled is essential when putting something like this together). So, enjoy and a big thank you to everyone who listened, shared and gave props to the first one – I hope you like this one too.
