Bloggy Blog World

The Grime & Lime forum is proving very handy for rare and unreleased late 90s - early 00s mixtape only tracks

Hip Hop Radio Archive is still popping off with new additions like this Radio 1 Rap Show 14.08.99 with Pharoahe Monch & Blak Twang

These episodes of the Reflections Of A DJ podcast are well worth a listen:

Radio 1 Rap Show 08.02.03
with Rah Digga & Phi Life Cipher

This one starts off with In Da Club and the first of many remixes that would follow. I still love the Budden/Paul Cain/Fab version that's played here (and would appreciate a CDQ if anyone can hook that up) but Bubba Sparxxx 'In The Mud' wasn't bad either I guess. This show must also be one of the first times Dipset Anthem gets a spin so that's a Big Moment for The Culture right here.
Rah Digga is the studio followed by Phi Life Cipher right at the end and Tim goes in the archives and airs the legendary Wu Tang appearance from '97 where Meth, ODB and RZA take over the phones, which you've probably heard before but is some straight radio gold every time.

Mothership Connection on 2SER, Sydney (1998)

Straight late 90s jiggy free underground flavours on this show, broadcast on community station 2SER in Sydney, Australia. If  anyone has any more info on these hit us up.

Tobes in Argentina provided the tapes, I ripped them in the UK and then passed them over to The Hip Hop Radio Archive in the US where you can stream or download them. F an international friendly, we're fully World Cup knockout stages over here.

DJ Rectangle - The Six Million Dollar Hand (2004)

Found this Rectangle CD that I haven't posted yet. It's from 2004 so we're on the fringes of classic territory and there's definitely some bullshit on here but Rec stitches it together so nicely and switches it up so often that you don't really have time to get too annoyed by anything. If you're in the UK the sun's out and it's a 3 day weekend so an appropriate opportunity to throw this on may well present itself at some point.
