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!

I got together recently with my dear friend J Squared to do a special podcast for Breakin Bread where we basically went in and played a load of records – things we like from all genres. Music from Organized Konfusion, Solange, Adrian Younge, Graham Nash, Jay-Z… there’s over 70 tracks on here! This was so much fun to do and hopefully you’ll enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed making it.
Big, big shout out to Skeg, Steve The Sleeve and the Breakin Bread fam (who are going to be celebrating their 15th year in October – click for details) and of course J Squared – we definitely kept it one hundo on this!
The full track list is available on Mixcloud and on the podcast info on iTunes.

It’s about time for a new mix from one of my all time favourite DJs, Gonorstein (if you don’t know, get to know). This time he goes into the zone of house related rap from the era when everyone put a house track on their album in the wake of Push It and I’ll House You. Props to Phil Martin on the artwork too…

There’s a load of good mixes about at the moment: this one is Monk One doing a mix themed around the classic 80s hip hop documentary, Bram Van Splunteren’s Big Fun In The Big Town, that has recently got a DVD release from Five Day Weekend.
This is really well put together, using excerpts from the film along with tracks from the era. As with everything that’s on WWHD this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you’ve never seen the film in question it’s definitely worth checking out. I may have to get the DVD as I’ve only ever seen it off a fuzzy VHS cassette. If it’s got some decent bonus footage then I’m definitely in.
