Spin Doctor vs. De La Soul – Brakes Is High

Friday, October 5th, 2012


Snagged this mix from the good blokes over at Dephect Clothing. In their own words:

A chronological blend of over 60 De La Soul classics and the original breaks used to create them from their first four albums; ’3 Feet High & Rising’, ‘De La Soul Is Dead’, ‘Buhloon Mindstate’ & ‘Stakes Is High’ & coming in at around 1 hour 45 mins this is a must for anyone with a love of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul & the art of sampling.

While this isn’t quite the monumental feat of sample source remixing that A Tribute to the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique was, it is a nice mix to enjoy over the weekend. Click here to download.

Click to read The TROY Blog Presents 100 Greatest Native Tongues Songs @Complex.com

…beyond their flamboyant presentation and bohemian sensibility, the Native Tongues were about constructing haunting, beautiful songs out of the fuzzy, bassy, scratchy, nearly forgotten remnants of virtually every black American musical tradition that ever seduced mainstream audiences. With a focus on the core members, we got the good folks from The T.R.O.Y. Blog to figure out The 100 Greatest Native Tongues Songs…

We put together this mammoth list to give new jacks a guide to the Native Tongues discography and old fans an excuse to listen to these gems again with older, wiser ears. These are songs by Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Chi-Ali, and others; can you really go wrong? March on over to Complex.com and get down with our virtual, interactive (streaming audio for every entry!) tour of one of our favorite portions of hip hop history. Hint for the impatient know-it-alls: if you hover the cursor over the menu linking to every entry, you’ll be able to see the songs in advance; we’re sure as shit not listing them all here. Enjoy!

Oh and if you found our site via Complex.com, welcome! Make yourself comfortable, take a look around, subscribe if you like what you see. We post reviews, articles, compilations, mixes, downloads, etc. everyday; we have quality content available for nearly every style of rap and taste that exists, from every era.

Special thanks to Dan, vaporized, 8ks, Espirando, pauserecordplay, and aleph for assisting us with the audio.  — Thun & Philaflava
