T&B Presents… Heroes In Your Headphones

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Tired & Broke from the Philaflava forum posted a nice new comic and video game themed compilation this morning. Here’s what he had to say:

With the conclusion of E3 2012 last week and Comic-Con 2012 about a month away (and to try to bring more traffic to Electric Relaxation) I figured now would be a great time to drop this mix since gaming and comics are fresh on everyone’s mind.

It’s no secret the subject of Comics and Video Games have been a heavy subject matter and source of inspiration in the world of Hip-Hop for over 2 decades. There’s been entire soundtracks dedicated to it, and several independent artists have made “theme” albums based around a sole Character. Other artists have successfully based the majority of their career around Comic Book characters; Hero and Villain alike.

“T&B Presents… Heroes In Your Headphones” is a custom soundtrack I made of a collection of songs based around the theme of Hip-Hop, Comics and Video Games. Whether its the main topic of the song or the track has sampled elements from a gaming franchise or comic book cartoon series.


PS: Mega Shoutout to the homey dirt_dog on the custom cover!! Son put in work in a short amount of time and looked out in a major way.

DJ Stretch Armstrong “Volume Four” Mixtape (1996)

Friday, April 9th, 2010

As I continue on through the box of tapes that I located in my basement, here is a semi mysterious DJ Stretch Armstrong “Volume Four” tape. I could find zero info on this one, so I turned to (the mixtape master of the Philaflava forum) Andyman187 for some help. He determined that this tape is a recording from a Stretch & Bobbito show on Hot97 that aired Sundays from 12pm-2pm sometime in 1996. Andyman187 was also kind enough to study the audio and put together a tracklist for me. If anyone out there can help by filling in the blanks or correcting any mistakes, please leave a comment.

DJ Rob One – Gavin Mixtape 1995

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

DJ Rob One was one of the more influential DJs in the LA underground until March 16, 2000 when he passed away after a battle with cancer. He used to host a very successful radio show in L.A. at CSUN (Cal State University Northridge) called “The Fly ID Show.” Here’s a mixtape that he released in 1995. Contains music by Gang Starr, Lords of The Underground (w/ a drop), Big Shug (w/ a drop), Digable Planets, AZ, etc. It’s a really dope mix!

I got this off ebay from a seller who converted his old dub-tapes into cdr’s. He’s only selling the cds for 2.99! I suggest that everybody go and purchase his items! Props to aplie1!
