I think I'm going to start a new Friday tradition. About every month or so, I go through all of the mixes posted on the site and click on the links to make sure that the links don't go dead. During that tedious process I'm able to see which mixes get a lot of downloads, and which don't. Doing this, I realize that many of you are sleeping on some real quality mixes. Now some of you are sleeping on some of these mixes because you weren't checking the blog in the early days. The rest of you are just straight sleeping. So, I thought it would be a good idea to re-post a mix every Friday that I think isn't getting the download love that it deserves (or you may have just missed). Below is my original description of "4 Turntable Beatdown," by Haul & Mason.
"From 2004 to 2006, Scion was hosting promotional events at the hottest L.A. clubs with all the best deejays in Hip Hop. Attending these events I saw Jazzy Jeff, Premier, Pete Rock, 45 King, 9th Wonder, DJ Revolution, Biz Markie, Krs-1, and Prince Paul, ALL FOR FREE! The only thing you had to do was go to the Scion website and RSVP and you were in there like swim-wear. It was the greatest thing since movies on demand. To make a long story short, deejays Haul&Mason were the opening act at all of these Scion events. These two cats were often a near impossible act to follow. If you've never heard these two deejays before, their whole schtick is that they perform all their sets on 2x4 turntables. The below mix was recorded live during their 2004 Japan Tour. ** Peep the below video for a sample of Haul and Mason doing their thing live."
