Dead Sound’s Golden Years Hip-Hop mix

Dead Sound and his other production outfit with Videohead as DVF is ticking all my boxes and then some when it comes to dancefloor aimed shit hot broken techno. Just blown away by his production ability and his work is taking up more and more of my record box.

Being Friday it’s time for a rave/old skool inspired style mix. And what better mix than an old skool hip hop mix put together by Dead Sound. Even better for those of you in the UK, it’s a bank holiday, so you get an extra day of weekend and a 4 day week to follow. Good times.

This mix isn’t just rammed with some of the illest old skool hip hop joints, Dead Sound also lets loose with some understated scratching and turntablism. And why the hell not. So sit back, turn the amp up to 11 and get down with the heavy vibes ebbing outta this mix.

Wanted to do a hip hop mix cos I fucking loves it… old school cos I hate this new shit.

Bit of turntablism involved cos that’s what got me into DJing… bit pissed when recorded it so a couple of mistakes but is all live so might aswell keep it that way. Gonna have to do another mix I thinks cos I couldn’t fit on all I wanted too…. too many good hip hop tunes hope you like
