Choicest Cuts vol 6 August 2013

This month started off with a BIG opener from Planet Asia...the man's prolific and I could probably feature him every month! "Positive Vibes" brings some variety and I like the MCs' flows on the reggae tip. The new Fat Joe "Your Honor" also comes hard!

Choicest Cuts Vol 7 September 2013

In my humble opinion ;-) there's absolutely no "fillers" in September's mix ... Every track hits hard! I think my personal faves were the two opening tracks, Boca 45 ft The good People, and Rap Tradition - Chris Read ft Phill Most Chill...."We're Right Here" is also SOO much fun to cut up!

Choicest Cuts Vol 5 July 2013

So I felt like starting this mix off cutting up doubles off the dark sounds of J-Rocc & Med's "The Set". If you never had the chance to watch a J-Rocc show, please do it.

Choicest Cuts Vol 4 June 2013

Highlight for me this month was probably the release of Megadon's "Canon ft Sadat X and co, followed very closely by "East Coast" and "It's a Queens Thing" though. Pretty much anything Apani B Fly puts a verse to will always feature, definitely one of the dopest females on the mic!

Choicest Cuts Vol 3 May 2013

The new album from Talib Kweli was the big release this month. There were quite a few I could have included from that album but the 3 I went with seemed to fit the mix the best - The opening line of "5AM in Brooklyn" made a nice little intro for the mix too.

Choicest Cuts Vol 2 April 2013

I really enjoyed putting a track list together for this one... When you get not one but two new tunes in the space of a month from a UK legend like Jehst, making a new mix is never a chore... If, like me, you "wasted" the majority of your childhood playing SNES games, you can only bug out to "G.A.M.E.O.V.E.R" which he brought out on record store day...

Choicest Cuts Vol1 Jan - Mar 2013

This was the first in my series of newly-released Hip Hop and my pick of the years' releases so far in March. Hard to pick out any standout tracks but the Oxygen joint about diggin' in the crates is a bit special, and so is the video.
