Brainfreeze Part 1 - Mixed by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist

The Brainfreeze mix was originally recorded on 2x4's as a practice session for a show in February 1999 at the Future Primitive Soundsession (San Francisco). Shadow and Chemist only mixed original pressings of funk and soul 45's (which is why they had to do it in one take). Initially 1000 copies were made and sold at the shows, and an additional 1000 copies were made and distributed to local records stores in California (and sold out very quickly). I remember buying my copy at Noise, Noise, Noise in Costa Mesa, CA. A cease-and-desist letter from 7-11 was then issued because 7-11 got their panties tied in a knot over the artwork and styling being based on their logos and uniforms. Following the cease-and-desist order, copies of the mix were taken off the shelves and the bootlegging started.

Below is the first part of Brainfreez. I'll post part 2 tomorrow.
