Nine performing Redrum @ Southpaw, Brooklyn, NYC on March 18th, 2011.
Here’s another mix for everyone to enjoy…
The “WikiBreaks” mix is a lil’ over an hour of breaks from funk, disco, re-edits, and some hiphop tracks that are not the most popular. I made most of the mix using two turntables, and then added some scratches & phrases from movies, pop-culture, commercials, etc… As you download yet another free mixtape i give out, i do hope you realize and appreciate the value of a good mix. There is an over-abundance of wanna-be djays: posers, strippers, clowns, reality tv losers, athletes, d-list celebs, promoters, anyone with a laptop, and even the coat-check chick spins… With all these djays you would think there would be more incredible mixes to listen too, more than there was 15 years ago when there was less djays? Yet, there is not many today, but i have dozens of cassettes from the 90′s with great mixes. Perhaps it’s because even the djays capable of making great mixes, don’t really do that anymore. There’s very few. It takes more than just playing what people know and like, or playing some exclusive detox tracks that are HORRIBLE and no one gives a shit about anyway, or just scratching really fast, or just “mashing up” any two different songs, or having “catchy” artwork, or playing an electro song that sounds like its 98 minutes long, etc… It takes a whole lot, that apparently most djays lack, or are simply lazy and ONLY do dj for $ not for the love of what it means to be a DJ. So whenever any DJ puts together something that obviously took time and dedication, we should appreciate their effort to keep the true mixtape essence alive, although it’s all downloads and digital 1 & 0′s… I guess we can try to keep the quality on par while most fell off or missed the boat. “Tradition means that we need to end what began well and continue what is worth continuing…” Well, I’ll continue to keep making really dope mixes with good music, over here…

In anticipation of their upcoming full length collaboration, Camp Lo and Pete Rock, in association with Trackstar The DJ and DJ Mark Divita, present the 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s mixtape. Featuring classic Camp vocals dropped over some of Pete’s best work from his days with CL Smooth, as well as a couple of brand new cuts that will appear on the LP, this project should serve as a nice warm up for the feature presentation.
