Seriously when doesn’t the Dopeman deliver, 100 percent hands down one of my top 5 fav dj/producers of all time.Kenny Dope is the definition of legit, from his seminal work as one half of MOW, as well as dropping all matter f heat on some of my most cherished 12’s and comps, to tastemaker, ridiculously dope dj, and Head honcho of KayDee the list is too long to continue. Anyone who isn’t down with Kenny Dope needs to do get acquainted with one of the most significant figures across more styles of music than you care to know about. This Mixtape Mondays we check another all 45’s mix of funk, soul and original breaks from the man himself. Listen below or sign up to his Newsletter to download and cop regular heat. LONG LIVE THE DOPEMAN!!
I wanted to leave this mix to post towards the end of the year to have some sort of grand finale or retrospective mix of the year post, but i got impatient and wanted to share with anyone who hasn’t checked it yet. Soul Sisters Stand Up, is a mind blowing mix put together over the course of two years by two of the most legit dj’s worldwide, The Gaff and Skratch Bastid. These two dons of the turntables pay tribute to the female soul, funk and Rnb vocalists of the 60’s nd 70’s the right way. This mixtape is done proper, real mixing, tight blends, tidy cuts, tasteful doubles and littered with original sample sources. There isn’t really much more i can say to get you to download this mix, easily one of the most hyped tapes of the year and with due respect. Download, share with crew, kiss me later.
This Mixtape Monday Goes legit. The one and only Cut Chemist live in the mix covering all matter of heat from between 1973 through to 79 on the disco, funk, soul and original breaks tip. Cut Chemist certainly needs no introduction,Without a doubt one of the most influential and amazing DJ/Proudcer, Crate Digger and tastemakers of the last 20 years. He has had his fingers in way too many musical pies ranging from production duties for Jurrassic 5 and Ozomatli too His collaborations with Shadow, mind blowing live shows as well cameos in Movies and docos. If your still interested get acquainted HERE.
For now get your Monday Morning blissed out vibes on to this ridiculously good set.
Ok so this Mixtape Monday is a history lesson, but it’s a fun histroy lesson that’s not actually that old. Today we’re revisiting one of the most hyped mixes of 2007, Ruckus Robotics The Music Machine Mix, which was awarded Solid Steels best mix of the Year in 07, which is pretty much the mixtape game equivalent to winning a Oscar. The mix itself goes everywhere from the Micky Mouse club to Bow Wow and the Avalanches to LCD soudsystem, all laced together with subtle cuts and playful samples to keep things fun and interesting. The mix is ripped from the Beat Oracle radio show on WCRS, so you will here some chit chat and history from Ruckus himself. Big Ups Beat Oracle for making this downloadable and available to the rest of the world. This mix won’t be for everyone, but for those who can appreciate a dj with serious skills and sense of humor, then this is for you. Ruckus Roboticus went on to release an insanely good album “Playing With Scratches” and continues to blow minds with mixtapes, originals, remixes and edits.
I Stumbled across this on soundcloud last week and had to share, an amazingly tight mix, from Canada based Dj, producer, collector and green tea drinker The Gaff. The mix spans funk, soul, hip hop, original breaks and some of Gaff’s cheeky edits all put together with supreme class and skills. This mix was made by Gaff in the lead up to infamous Brooklyn fiesta the rub’s 10th Anniversary. Someone please teleport me to this party on the 28th and i’ll pay you in burgers forever!!
Here’s the mix
Also this Edit by Gaff destroys any dancefloor worldwide were people don’t suck and like shitty music. I’m sure Shantan will be all over this like a rash. DON’T SLEEP!!
