Austrian public “Radio FM4″ asked me to mix the dopest and most important Hip Hop-Clubhits from the last 20 years in 45 minutes for the annual new years show “20…on 45″. An impossible task as there was so much good stuff released in those two decades. Here is my selection, some obvious hits combined with less obvious tunes, fast blends and personal edits that should capture the vibe of those years. Of course i could not fit every song in this mix that deserves to be in there. Anyway, enjoy my trip through 20 Years of Hip Hop-History.
