A confusing title, but the one man who brings it all together is mixtape specialist Mick Boogie. Along with Terry Urban, he’s worked on some of the most acclaimed mixtapes around over the last few years, including Viva La Hova and the 2009 Grammy Remix project.
You really need to click below to get some very, very good music. There’s something for fans of both indie-rock and hip-hop in the mixtapes, and you’ll certainly be missing out on some superb stuff if you miss this out.
Today we’re delivering you Mick Boogie’s recent bodies of work, beginning with an 8-track mash-up mixtape of The Noisettes recent album Wild Young Hearts, and Kanye’s 808s and Heartbreak presented by himself and Terry Urban. From what I’ve heard so far, this is absolutely superb and definitely worth picking up. They’re superbly mixed, and sound as if they were meant to be. This isn’t any old cheap mash-up project, Boogie and Urban are probably the best around at this and it’s a professional piece of music that you’d be insane to miss.
In addition to this, you can pick up the NBA Live 2010 mixtape from Mick, which features some of the songs (scroll down to the bottom two posts) we’ve given you over the last few weeks, as well as a few I was preparing to post. This mixtape features Snoop Dogg, 88-Keys, Colin Munroe, De La Soul and many more. This is packed full of motivational, upbeat tracks which make this just as unmissable as the mixtape above.
In conclusion: two free mixtapes/albums? You’d be silly to ignore this anyway, but the fact that the mixtapes are two of the better releases this year makes this essential listening.
