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.
It is funny when the hip hop show descends into a not so private party on stage, which u had the misfortune of witnessing. A bunch of girls dancing badly with old men. Hurry up and end it please, so that we can all go home.
All and all though, it was a good show. On a Thursday evening at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, the Wu-Tang formed together like Voltron, they just happened to be missing an arm and a leg. Though even with Rza, Meth and ODB absent, the Wu is still a force to be reckoned with. Ghostface alone has the force of 100 emcees when he explodes on the microphone. Plus it’s hard to go wrong with classic tracks for days.
Young Dirty Bastard though? I am just not sure. I understand he is carrying on the legacy, but it just seems a little funny making a career impersonating your father.
