Life After Death Mixtape - Mixed by DJ Matman

Saturday marked the 20th anniversary of Life After Death.  Hardcore blog fans know that day as the day where I decided to listen to that, before this.

To mark the 20th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Life After Death', our buddy DJ Matman has put together this heavy tribute mixtape featuring album tracks, remixes, and original sample material.
Listen up and enjoy!

Breaks & Snacks 2 - Mixed by DJ Ian Head

Incredible mix! Read the below description and just try not to listen. I dare you. Highly Recommended.

I started working on this tape over a year ago. People seemed to dig the first one, so I figured I'd cut up a few more random breaks and funky records for a sequel. After laying down the music, it still seemed missing something, and so I started going back and adding vocal samples and audio clips, from both vinyl and digital sources. There is an old clip of De La Soul being interviewed on NPR where Dave and Maceo talk about the ways djs and producers buy and dig for records, and it inspired me to search further for related - and unrelated - soundbites. In the end, this tape is kind of an adventure through the world of record-buying, classic movies, 90s Grammy award ceremonies, and b-side rap accapellas, all over a backdrop of breakbeats direct from my personal crates. Like the first mix, while the bulk of the cuts and mixing was done using Serato, everything you hear besides the interview clips is from original wax.

Rock And Soul Holiday Party 2016 - DJ Ragoza

Super clean, diverse set at my favorite record store in the world (though it appears they don't actually sell records anymore) Rock & Soul.

#5MinutesOfFunk (003) - Mixed byDJ Scram Jones

There are parts of this routine that are unworldly (like the freak of Ain't No Half Steppin); there are other parts that are beneath a set of this caliber.  Regardless, Highly Recommended.
