One of my early mixtapes. This was done in 1996 for Fat Beats to sell in the store. I did it 100% live, which meant that any time I messed up making it I had to go back and start over. I only had one Technics 1200 at the time, and one crappy belt drive. Gemini 2-channel mixer. To my ears now it's full of rough transitions, weird tempo changes, and off beat cuts... But it worked at the time, and was my entré to radio in NYC when G-Man and J-Smooth of the Underground Railroad radio show heard it. All original vinyl on a breaks and beats concept. Hope you enjoy this artifact!
