Yup, we at this shit one more time. Again, for those just joining us now – this little series is to give some shine to those cats out there making bootleg mixes, blends and mashes. Cats who ain’t getting their shit on wax. Cuts that you only hear if you’re creepin on this little internet thing, lurkin on forums or tradin up with other DJs. This is the good shit, and believe me there’s a lots of bullshit out there too.
Aaliyah – If Your Girl Only Knew (siik remix)
This is just a blend over a Common cut, but it works damn well. I’m always impressed when people do remixes and manage to keep the songs in key (vocals against music). Most just slap any old shit together, and that drives some of us crazy. You can check for more of this cats work at siik.org.
Raphael Saadiq (and Teedra Moses) – I Want You Back (b.cause vitamin d edit ruff)
B.Cause is killin it again with this one. This is from a while back if I recall correctly. Check for B.Cause at the 15 Minutes of Fame shit this Friday in SF homie Sonny Phono is hookin it up. Meanwhile you can find B on MySpace or at 4onefunk.com (PS that Teedra Moses album is dope!)
Clipse – Mr. Me Too (Fields Remix)
This one falls victem to the “no info” problem. Dudes need to put their information in their MP3s. I’m all about giving credit where credits due, hell that’s the purpose of this little series. Homie, hit me up!
Fam-Lay ft. Pharrell – Da Beeper Record (Gabe Don’t Give A Fuck Mix)
Gabe’s probably gonna be pissed I posted this shit, but oh well. He popped this record on me and I hadn’t really given it a listen much beforehand but it’s HOT, in a ridiculous way. Then he hits me with this mix and steps it up. What the fuck is that line about midget knuckles??? OK then…
PS this is the airhorn and gunshot free version, DOH!
Kinfolk Kia Shine – Midwest Krispy (JBLOW ReFix)
A-KO is the dude for real. His records on MPM are very dope in my humble opinion. This is a chopped up version of his Chicago cut (check for that 12″!) with some Krispy business on top of it. I’ve been playing this blend live for a while so I figured I’d commit it to MP3 to pass around. You can hit the homie here.
