Mick Boogie-93 Til’ Infinity Mix

Apologies for the lateness: I didn’t know it existed until I saw an email from Mick earlier!

“Mick Boogie, known for his eclectic DJ sets and amazing mixtapes, is also an avid basketball fan and a video game junkie. With the recent return of the classic 90’s arcade game NBA JAM (now refreshed and remixed for 2010), Mick was inspired to put together a mixtape of classic and rare 90’s remixes that serve as the soundtrack to where we were back in the day.  Being that NBA JAM dropped in 93, Mick’s decision to call the mix “93 Til’ Infinity” was the only appropriate choice! In addition to the mixtape, Mick collaborated with vintage t-shirt designers Homage to create a limited edition NBA JAM/93 Til Infinity inspired tee to celebrate the release of this mix and the videogame.  You can find the shirt here”.

You can grab the mixtape here, and view the tracklist after the jump below.

De La Soul - The Return Of DST

It’s funny as I was reading up on old school hip-hop legends DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash earlier today. Here we have three more hip-hop legends paying tribute to another: Grand Mixer DXT (formerly D.ST) who popularised turn-tabling back when hip-hop was a mere twinkle in its father’s eye.

Throwback Thursdays Vol 32

I’ve let my game slip a little bit recently. Last week was just plain lazy. The previous few I tried to force some niche throwbacks. This week, we are taking it old school straight up classic. I’m back bitches.

Step up De La Soul and their 1989, 5 star, 3 Feet High and Rising.

I knew this video existed and I was a little worried when I couldn’t find it on a certain well-known video site. The reason was even though Eye Know reached the dizzy heights of number 14 on the UK singles chart, it wasn’t actually released as a single over in the US. Crazy Huh?!

This song is so infectious and I bet you find yourself whistling it for the rest of the day.

Let’s get into it.

Gorillaz-Superfast Jellyfish

Latest leak from the album comes in the form of this decent track, which features De La Soul and Gruff Rhys. Good track all-round, with a slightly more hip-hop edge to it than other Gorillaz stuff.

Le Da Soul: 20 Years of De La Soul

Now that I’ve finally had some time, a quick glance over my inbox threw up this little gem that Mick Boogie sent across. It’s the latest project from himself and Terry Urban (from a long line of classic mixtapes, go here for some) and is a tribute to the veterans of hip-hop, De La Soul. There are some great names contributing on this, including Talib Kweli, Camp Lo, Colin Munroe and many more.

Definitely worth grabbing, and anyone who owns one of these boys’ previous projects will know that this is going to be something special.

Hit this link here for more info, the tracklisting, and of course the download link.

Sunday’s Classic Collabo: N*E*R*D, Common, Mos Def, Q-Tip and De La Soul

Can you believe She Wants To Move was released over half a decade ago? Can you believe how long the title of the post is?

There’s a good chance that you missed a star-studded remix of this, which features pretty much all of the best jazz/soul rappers ever. If you miss it this time, you need your head examined.
