Mr Thing is my favourite DJ in the whole wide world. This week he’s dropped two brand new mixes, originally done for radio and now immortalised on his Mixcloud. Shouts to Thing! Make sure you head your record store’s way on Record Store Day to grab the final part of the First Word RSD trilogy, where Thing, Tall Black Guy, Eric Lau and Kidkanevil raided the John Peel archive.
The soulful side of Jay Dee:
Was asked to do a Jay Dee/Dilla mix for Leigh Tha Flava’s radio show which went out in February, so decided to highlight some of the remixes and rarer promo only pieces as well as some of the more well known tunes and their original samples. Artwork once again finessed by my man DJ Mo Fingaz, enjoy!
For Boba Fatt’s 100th episode of his show on Itch FM, library music:
I was asked earlier this year to do a mix for my good friend Boba Fatt for his 100th show on Itch FM and he said i could do whatever i liked! So decided to do something different from the Hip Hop mixes and do a mix of some rare and not so rare sampled library records which i have been collecting for years and was taught a great deal about by my friend Mark B. Basically Library Music was set up to be used as the background music for TV shows, and a lot of the good stuff ended up in shows such as The Sweeney. I’ve remastered this since it went out on air and my man Tarl/DJ Mofingaz did the artwork … Enjoy!
