With the first week of the New Year out of the way, the fine folks at Slice-of-Spice are back to the grind, gearing up to release an assemblage of new (and old) Lord Finesse material. In 2011, Finesse released the first in The Art of Diggin’ mix series, featuring rare groove, library record sounds and just plain ill digs. This second installment is no different, with the exception of the focus being on Blue Note Records cuts, in similar fashion to the Diggin’ On Blue mixed CD sessions that dropped in the late 90s.
