Adidas ‘Unite All Originals’ Mixtape, mixed by Chris Read for WhoSampled

UAOM-Artwork_400I recently put together this mix for WhoSampled in support of Adidas Original’s ‘Unite All Originals’ campaign.

Featuring the pairing of Run-DMC and A-Trak, the recent series of TV adverts in support of Adidas Originals Autumn/Winter collection sees the two acts collaborate on a track. Launching this week is a competition dubbed ‘Drop A Rhyme’ which offers vocalists an opportunity to hop on A-Trak’s beat alongside Run-DMC. The winning entries will feature on a forthcoming remix of the track.

In support of the competition, I put together an exclusive mix for WhoSampled placing some of Hip Hop’s greats alongside the records they have sampled, uniting some of the featured artists’ best loved hits with their original sources.

Listen to the mix here.
