the Mobb Deep bootleg (1998/9)

4 unreleased Mobb Deep joints from the late 90s 'Murda Muzik' era (I think). That album went through a few changes before its final release and these didnt make the cut...


Sound quality is so-so and the somewhat surreal 'Horizons' ends rather abruptly but you do get Prodigy's 'Gun Love', 'Flippin' and '3 The Hard Way' (aka '3 From NYC') featuring Big Noyd. I'm sure these have circulated online before but with all the dead links about at the moment I thought a fresh rip wouldn't hurt. You're welcome.

If you're after more forgotten gems make sure you check out what Lattisaw Tapes are putting together right now

DJ Kofi '90s Classics' mix (2012)

If you haven't heard a Kofi mix before I strongly recommend you check this out. He's ridiculously good.


I'm off up to London today for a bit of this so there might be some more treats on the way. Plus a new tape deck has been found so as soon as I can pick it up, everythings a go.

D'Angelo 'Brown Sugar' (DJ Step One blend)

I'm off to see D'Angelo perform in Brixton tonight (which will possibly the be the most grown-up and civilised show I've ever been to!) so thought I'd post this blend of 'Brown Sugar' over Dre's 'Xxplosive'. Works quite nicely I think...


Turns out finding a pic of him with his shirt on was harder than hooking up the blend.
