Posted by step one at Thursday, March 19, No comments:. Theres not a bad track on this tape. The majority of it was brand new at the time so the fact that alot of these tracks are considered classics today is testament to Riz's selection skills.

Tuesday, 17 March "Live from the corner of Marcy Its pretty hard to come by stuff that is genuinely rare these days.
If you know where to look you can probably find all sorts of demos, unreleased mixes and shelved material by artists both known and unknown. This track definitely falls into the latter category. I kept an eye out for it through 10 years of numerous vinyl digging sessions but never found it. A couple of years back I decided to harness the power of the internets and track it down. No amount of Hip Hop geeks on the forums could help so I googled the names mentioned on the track, one of which was Almighty Wise and — of course — he had a myspace page.
He was more than a bit suprised that some bloke from England was after a track he put on tape over 10 years ago but was good enough to send me a full version and some other tracks he'd done.
Shame I'll never have it on vinyl but thats what Serato is for I guess. Posted by step one at Tuesday, March 17, 3 comments:.
Labels: Almighty WiseBrooklynHot 97tape rips. This idea was conceived when I dropped it spontaneously on a mix CD I did last year. We tidied it up a bit, added an intro for the DJs and this is the end result.
Posted by step one at Tuesday, March Customer - DJ Evil Dee* - In Ya Area Pt 2 (CD), No comments:. This tape only 40 mins long unfortunately is one of my favourites for the following reasons: - E Rule's 'Listen Up'. Considering this is from one of the best years ever for quality Hip Hop its strange that Buckshot mentions "taking Hip Hop back".
He obviously had no idea what the future held and that any DJ playing a Bootcamp Click b-side on daytime Hot 97 in would be fired.

There's no date on the tape but I'm guessing this from Posted by step one at Sunday, March 15, 3 comments:. I havent been playing out much recently but this Easter weekend April 9th I'll be holding down Room 2 while Chris Goldfinger headlines the main room at Tru.
I played there last Easter when Goldfinger came down and it was absoloutely rammed so I'm hoping for more of the same this time. Should be a good night. I dont have any Asha World tapes ripped yet so instead heres a mix I made last year, full of club bangers.
Its all Hip Hop from a few years back Posted by step one at Saturday, March 14, No comments:. This particular session is from Doo Wop's 'Xmas Jams 93' tape and is absoloutely siiiick! Posted by step one at Friday, March 13, 3 comments:. I only bought Serato a few months ago so I havent made any new mixes recently as Ive been busy converting all my vinyl to MP3. Until I get round to doing something new I thought I'd post some of my favourites from the last couple of years.
This first mix is a selection of some of my favourite UK tunes. Mostly they're from There hasnt been much I've been into recently, but then that goes for Hip Hop as a whole.
Hopefully some of the artists I used to check for like Klashnekoff, Fallacy and Rodney P will start dropping stuff again soon. Posted by step one at Friday, March 13, 5 comments:.
That Biggie freestyle was obviously quite rare as it got about 70 downloads in the first hour - not bad considering I only started this blog 5 days ago! Anyway, the fact that people are checking this page means that I feel a bit of pressure to keep coming with stuff you might not have but will definitely want. I thought I'd give the Westwood tapes a break for the moment dont worry there's more to come!
This is the first 30 mins of a tape titled ' It's all blends and they all sound heavy! I might post that at some point if enough people are feeling this.

It was the anniversary of BIG's death 2 days ago and every blog has been full of tribute posts, the best one being put together by the good peoples at TROY which definitely has some audio and video you might not have come across before.

If I remember right this was recorded in early 94 around the time 'Doggystyle' dropped.
They go back and forth for about 8 minutes over the 'Deep Cover' and 'Award Tour' instrumentals. Posted by step one at Monday, March 09, No comments:. Sunday, 8 March "If you want more bomb shit make MK know!
After a record is finished and released, its so cool to see how each record affects different types of people. Ike showed me how to use the Customer - DJ Evil Dee* - In Ya Area Pt 2 (CD) and taught us how to loop.
I sampled a lot of heat for this album. Fast forward some years, and I finally flipped it on the album. The whole album sounds raw and gritty and I like how its turning out. This might be our last album. We have all types of analog gear. I might want to mix it on tape. The mix of the album is going to be a very fun process indeed. Streaming is the mainstream these days, and usually after I finish a song I have an inner debate on whether Customer - DJ Evil Dee* - In Ya Area Pt 2 (CD) want to press it on vinyl or not.
Definitely for the next Black Moon album! We must press it on vinyl! Sampling is the essence of hiphop! The fundamental foundation of hiphop is not just cut, paste and loop. These days, the mainstream is on the internet. The opportunities for beat makers and artists to talk about music production are getting harder and harder to find. I think communication is very important in the direction of a song. They have to move in the same direction. I would spend like a day to go through all my records.
Back when we used to buy records, we would spend like a whole week just digging. I have an awkward way of djing. Cell Therapy is an ill record! I actually broke this record out the first time played it.
