Skratch Bastid & Sneaker Freaker present The Starter Era - Dope Raps 1989-1993

Issue #22 of international kick-head bible Sneaker Freaker magazine features a 17-page spotlight on Starter athletic wear and how it changed the sports fashion game. To accompany the story, they asked me to make a mix featuring rap jams from Starter’s prime, 1989-1993, to be included with the magazine in physical form. It features classic & overlooked bangers from one of hip-hop’s golden eras, alongside some of the original tunes they sampled and exclusive remixes. You’ll know what’s going down from the intro.

Big thanks to Sneaker Freaker ( and Pigeons & Planes ( for their help in this project.

This mix is best listened to first without looking at the track list. Once you've made it all the way through, go here:
