Mix: Stevie G-Tru Skool Hip-Hop Volume 1

This week we’ve been having a bit of a catchup/memory-rejig on classic Hip Hop. I asked my friend Simon “What’s your favourite mix of say, all time?” and he replied with:

“I’d say a Kid Capri classic funk breaks that I bought in Manchester Corn Exchange circa 1990… that or if you mean a mix of hip-hop tracks probably some early 90s Funkmaster Flex, there was an amazing one with a Mast Ace Inc freestyle. Red Alert, Stretch Armstrong are other notables… gotta be ’88-’94 : )”

He then sent over some links to Stevie G’s Podcasts from 2008 and this has been on the stereo for the last couple of days. Repeat and rinse. All day long.

What’s your favourite mix? Drop it in the comments box below with a link if you can.
