From the Vaults: Mr Thing – Ear This Mix CD

As part of my efforts to update my downloads / discography page with all my past projects and releases with which I have been involved, I recently dug out this Mix CD put together by then Scratch Perverts member and World Champion DJ, Mr Thing for Breakin’ Point magazine.

Released about one month prior to the “Substance presents Lyric Superbrand” compilation, the mix featured Mad Flow and Chris Read’s “It’s The Who?” (recorded for that compilation) under licence from Different Drummer recordings. The 20 track mix features a selection of cuts that were brand new at the time of release from artists including J Rawls, J Live, Ty, Unsung Heroes, L Fudge, Jehst, Al Tariq and many others. I remember hearing at the time that the issue on which this CD featured was the highest selling the magazine had produced.

Long out of print, you can still find copies from time to time on Discogs where you can also check out the full track listing.
