I was searching for some footage of the J5 reunion at Coachella and came upon this classic mix uploaded to youtube. You can stream the video above if you don't trust my "highly recommended" recommendation. A download link is below for those who know better than to question my impeccable taste in music.
This mixtape, "Rare Equations" by Lucas MacFadden a.k.a Cut Chemist, was taken from the original bootlegs that were doing the rounds back in 1995. The "Rare Equations" CD version was officially released some 7 years later (2002) on the back of the success that was "Brainfreeze".
The "Rare Equations" mix (when compared to Brainfreeze) is a more chilled outing with some deep jazz and funk numbers and not a novelty song (slurp slurp) in sight!
