We've just unleased the 7th and 8th releases on the label and they're available now at Juno Download.
Both are very much on the funky/party breaks tip with a strong Hip Hop feel (as usual!) so if you're into Bomb Strikes, A Skillz or Kid Stretch make sure you check 'em out...

Doo Wop, Akinyele, Fat Joe, Lord Tariq & Pretty Boy Floyd 'Gotta Go Down' (1995)

OK, so I didn't just drop a 4 figure sum on the Hip Hop collector's Holy Grail, but £3 did just get me a bootleg 12" that includes the b-side which did the rounds on the mixtapes back in the day...

Green Lantern 'The Mix'

Bit of a strange one here. Its a 7 minute megamix of 90s classics by DJ Green Lantern, taken from this 12" which looks - and in places sounds - like a bootleg (it ends quite abruptly!). I suppose it could be that someone recorded Lantern's interlude slot on the Eminem tour one night and then pressed it up, adding some of the accapellas and instrumentals on the b-side. Either that or they just jacked his show vinyl and this is a straight copy. Anyway, it features Da Bush Babees, Nine, Mary J, Method Man, Craig Mack and Channel Live and its worth a listen.

Step One presents 'Illegal Remixes Vol 2'

The first volume of unofficial remixes that I dropped back in January proved quite popular so I've teamed up with the peoples over at TROY to bring you Volume 2.

There’s a good variety of flavours on this one, ranging from straight-up Hip Hop on the Meth, Xzibit and Mobb Deep tracks, to the reggae re-rubs of the Jungle Brothers and Fugees joints. The West Coast is represented on the ‘West Up!’ remix and the ATL gets a look in with 2 Outkast joints. As with the first set, some of these are ripped from vinyl, others have been posted on blogs and forums.
