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.




WhoSampled x Wax Poetics: Midnight Marauders 20th Anniversary Mixtape by Chris Read

Here’s another great mix from Who Sampled’s Chris Read, this time marking 20 years since the release of A Tribe Called Quest’s classic long player Midnight Marauders. Now they need to do one for Wu…

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.

Used Volume 7 – Breaks mix by @iamfakeblood


New volume of USED breaks from Fake Blood! In his own words…

Here is the 7th edition in my USED series.
I said I’d stop at 6, but I couldn’t really do that, could I?

As with all the previous volumes, it’s 100% original pressings of old tracks sampled in classic Hip Hop tunes, loaded into Serato (to save them getting wrecked and cos many of them are super rare), and then cut up on 2 copies.

The Token Jazz Hour – Mixed by Bowls



Just the other day I on the look to see if there was anything new from Bowls as I’d not seen anything from him for a while. Then this new mix shows up that he’s done for Tucker and Bloom of jazz records sampled by Jay Dee and it’s a winner. This is another contender for mix of the year (there’s at least 1o contenders for the title so far).

Check out Tucker Bloom’s website to see Bowls words on the mix and check out his other mixes – all premium quality.
