DJ Spinbad is one of the best technical DJ’s in the game. He mixes on WWPR in New York City and was formerly heard on WHTZ in twenty-minute sets at 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. on weekdays, Fridays at 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 7:00 p.m. He is also heard on WWPR at 10:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m. on Fridays. Recent recession cutbacks, according to his MySpace page, forced WTHZ to cut him from their lineup. He was also heard on WHTZ on Saturdays from 11:00 p.m.â€“2:00 a.m. live from Webster Hall in New York City. Spinbad was also a frequent guest on the syndicated radio show Live In Tha Den With Big Tigger.
One of my favorite mixtapes of all-time is “Rock The Casbah” which is said to have been one of the most bootlegged mix CD’s of all-time per Wikipedia. It’s also the ultimate 80’s megamix where Spinbad mixes and cuts up your favorite 80’s new wave/pop tracks with a hip-hop twist.
“Rock The Casbah” was originally released on CD but due to the 80 minute limitation it had to be shortened.
Below is the full mix featuring 10 additional tracks. Our homie Dan was kind enough to break us off with these mixes. For those that don’t know Dan, besides being one of the nicest guys, a phenomenal story teller on Philaflava, he has recently turned into quite the movie buff. For those interested in TV/film you may want to swing by his blog.
Have I ever steered you wrong? Trust me on this on, download this and play it at your next house party. Your guest will never forget it! –Philaflava
