Step One “Illegal Remixes Vol. 2” (2010)

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

The first volume of Illegal Remixes assembled by Step One proved quite popular, so here’s another batch of unofficial remixes for you.

There’s a good variety of flavours on this one, ranging from straight-up Hip Hop on the Meth, Xzibit and Mobb Deep tracks, to the reggae re-rubs of the Jungle Brothers and Fugees joints. The West Coast is represented on the “West Up!” remix and the ATL gets a look in with 2 Outkast joints. As with the first set, some of these are ripped from vinyl, others have been posted on blogs and forums. I’ve credited the creators where possible so click the links and show them some love if you like what you hear.

dirt_dog Remix Pack 1

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Before my vinyl obsession began, I used to be crazy madd about cd singles. It would usually go like this: I’d go to my local shop, see a cd single, buy it. Then a couple weeks later I’d spot the same looking cd single in a slim line case. Sure, why not get that one too? It has 1 or 2 extra tracks on it. It came to the point where I’d buy just about anything I could in hopes of finding some dope remix, live track or a non-album track. So here I’m going to give you little 5-track packs of my favorite remixes and other rarities that I’ve pulled from my own cd single collection over the years. I’m also going to do my best not to repeat any track from the 50 Remixes You Need To Hear series that was done earlier on the blog.

Remix Pack 1

01 Public Enemy-Can’t Do Nuttin’ For Ya Man (Bass In Your Face 12″ Mix)

02 Naughty By Nature-O.P.P. (Fairplay Remix)

03 The Pharcyde-Passin’ Me By (Brixton Flavour 12″)

Hot 97 Radio Freestyles Pt.3 (1996)

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Here’s volume 4 of the Hot 97 Freestyle AllStars vinyl series. This is probably the release with the least rare freestyles since most of the ones included were featured on Funkmaster Flex “60 Minutes of Funk Vol.1”. But for example, you get the full session of the Redman & Keith Murray freestyle which is 15 min. long while it was cut short to 4 min. in the Funk Flex mixtape. The other exclusive freestyles are from Da Bush Babees, Jay-Z, and Krs-One.

A1. Redman & Keith Murray – Freestyle
B1. Da Bush Babees – Freestyle
B2. Krs-One – Freestyle
B3. Jay-Z – Freestyle
B4. Fugees – Freestyle
B5. Erick Sermon – Freestyle
B6. Redman & Method Man – Freestyle
B7. Busta Rhymes – Freestyle
B8. Q-Tip – Freestyle
