|35 Essential Cuts CD
The CD kicks off with some Run DMC tracks cut the buggery out of and blended with a collage of vocal snippets Steinski or early Cold Cut style. Its three minutes before we get a full verse of Runs House, followed by the opening drums from Sucker MCs being Juggled. Then we are off going on a breaks and funk excursion in which we are treated to a well mixed selection which initially starts off with Bob James' Take Me To The Mardi Gras and includes the ubiquitous cut up James Brown along with some super funky Meters type tracks and other well known grooves which would keep any dance floor filled.
The breaks section finishes off with James Brown's I Know You Got Soul before the CD progresses on an classic mix of Big Daddy Kane's Another Victory and Heaven & Hell and a selection on an Electro tip featuring Man Parrish's Boogie Down Bronx and Hip Hop Don't Stop and Twilight 22's Electric Kingdom followed by G.L.O.B.E.'s Play That Beat before a crude slow down and a Nu Skool selection including Public Enemy's Your Gonna Get Yours, a bit of Stetsasonic followed by what sounds like a Trouble Funk Go Go beat and Audio Two's much sampled classic classic Top Billin'. Special Ed's I Got It Made continues what is turning out to be a fabulous dope mix.
A crude switch to Group Home's Superstar or Livin' Proof, I forget right now and the The CD finishes off pretty much where it started with a return to phrases cutting up, 'sneakers on my feet' and 'my Adidas'. Run DMC and the turntable skills which have accompanied the tracks for the duration play out the tracklist. So a complete mystery as to what this is about, but it is a nice retrospective track selection, ust what I wanted to hear. I wasn't counting the number of tracks, but 35 in this 30 minute mix seems about right. If anyone has any more information on this let me know.
