DJ Mastermind - Tape 42 (1998)



 Another dope tape by Mastermind out of Canada. I got asked for this a while back but I've only just found it so apologies for the delay...

I've finally got myself a scanner so you might see changes to some older posts where I'll upload the tape covers where possible. I'm also trying to re-up any dead links so if you've requested one the be patient, its coming!

Further to my post a few weeks back, it doesnt look like theres going to be any let up regarding shows in London. Although Rakim cancelled (who saw that coming?), Pharaoahe Monch tore it up on Monday night, AZ is town tonight, KRS is on saturday alongside Buckshot, Mad Lion and Freddie Foxx no less (which is where I'll be!) and Black Milk is at Jazz Cafe in a few weeks.

Doo Wop - Live at Mecca (1995)














I thought I'd uploaded most tapes of interest from my own collection but a search through the box unearthed a few I'd missed. This one is Doo Wop dropping some 80s classics at NYC nightspot Mecca back in 1995.



Sound quality isn't flawless (obviously) but the recording does capture some crowd noise which gives it a bit more of an authentic feel.

Red Cafe 'Heart & Soul Of New York City' (2009)



This Pete Rock produced track was one of my favourites of 2009 but I only discovered this video for it last night. I got the impression that the song was kind of slept on and seeing as its 9/11 and all I thought I'd post it up for all the NY heads that check the blog.

Even if you dont usually check for Red Cafe I'd still highly recommend this - great song, great video!

Lord Finesse & Cormega - Future Flavas freestyle














I've just set myself up a Soundcloud account, and while I was searching through endless pages of homemade remixes and sub-par mash-ups I came across this short Finesse and Cormega freestyle from Marley Marl and Pete Rock's Hot 97 show. The Funky Man kills it...
