In March of this year, BBE released a double mix CD album celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the label’s ground breaking Beat Generation series, which featured no holds barred artist albums from the likes of J Dilla, Pete Rock, Jazzy Jeff, Will I Am, Madlib and MFSB string arranger Don Cello. The CD version of the anniversary album featured 2 full length mixes from NY’s DJ Spinna and the UK’s Mr Thing. The digital version featured both those mixes, a full length mix from me and a selection of unmixed tracks from the series.
Having just completed my double mix album for BBE’s 15th Anniversary later this year, I thought this would be a good time to give anyone who didn’t catch my previous mix a chance to hear it, so I’ve just added to my Mixcloud page a half hour extract of my mix from the Beat Generation release covering the hip hop side of the series’ output.
Listen to the mix here.
The full length mix (about 1 hour in length) goes on to cover the soul and jazz / beats side of the material from the series and can be purchased as part of the digi-package here. (Digital package includes 3 x 1 hour Mixes from DJ Spinna, Mr Thing, Chris Read plus approx 30 unmixed cuts in your choice of MP3 or Wav format all for bargain price of £10.00!)
