Everybody's kind, complimentary, and supportive comments in response to my last mix caused me to post this mix earlier than expected. Something a little more "upbeat" from your favorite blogger.
Deconstructed, reconstructed, and broken-down like only the man who unofficially holds the title for most Chronic listens can. A couple of interesting side notes about the album and me. My first residency was located directly across the street from the studio where Chronic was recorded (I had no idea until years later). There is a Popeye's Chicken located on the corner of Hollywood and Cahuenga where I would go to use the bathroom before my gigs, and where I would go to sober up before going home (personal highlight was seeing my childhood crush, Idalis eating there). I would come to find out later via docs and interviews that Snoop, Daz, Kurupt and the gang would regularly eat at this very same Popeye's during the making of The Chronic. Enough geeking out, enjoy the mix.
A really ill mix Professor! Surprisingly with the plethora of mixes I hear on a daily I never heard a Chronic samples mix before. Not even Chris Read ever attempted such a mix. Great job Pipo!!
I didn't have enough time to listen to this mix in its entirety once you posted it, but today it's on repeat all day! Can't say enough... I'd say you totally fulfilled the concept that you chose - I would appreciate to hear more mixes of this kind! Thank you for those many hours you've spent crafting this incredible mixtape... I'm getting my very first car next week - can't wait to 'play it high volume especially in a residential area'!
It was very interesting to read the side notes - I guess you are indirectly affected by all what was going around at that time. I do believe that there are no coincidences.
Thank you Pipo!
P.S. I really don't understand why this level of mixes are getting as little recognition...
Keep up the good work!
