Spotlight - DJ Miura (Barcelona)



Miura is one of the best DJs people outside of Spain may not have heard of - a real veteran of the Spanish hip hop and turntablism scenes, Miura has a vast knowledge and background of golden era hip hop and rnb and combined with seamless mixing skills and really funky scratches you have the ingredients for some top mixes!

New mix coming soon with DJ Madhandz!



Excited to say I'm collaborating with fellow Londoner DJ Madhandz on a new Boom Bap mix. We've both been working on it for a while now so hopefully it's going to be a bit special!

Check out Madhandz on his Mixcloud or follow on Facebook

You can also catch him on the Hip Hop Back in the Day show on Westside FM

Pharcyde 'Labcabincalifornia' 20th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read



I know this rather goes against popular opinion but for me Labcabincalifornia was one of the biggest disappointments in Hip Hop at the time of it's release...

Dj Sage One-Riot Mixtape

A mix I recorded in 2011 but did not release back then because of negative feedback I might have received due to the strong political and religious opinionated controversial content based on facts. I decided to release this mix now because of the issues going on recently and thought now I shouldn't care of the responses or opinions of others. Some of my own opinions differ from some of the artists in this mix but I also like to hear how other artists see things in their vision. I didn't own Serato at the time. This mix was all vinyl, 2 turntables, a sampler, a beat machine and edited in Sony Acid.
