PTP extended blog-o-sphere familia, The Diggers Union, just released a conceptual Ghostface-meets-DJ Premier mix project called Duel of the Iron Fists. Laced by resident cut creator, DJ Unexpected, this plays like a Golden Era blend tape on steroids. Wu and Primo fans rejoice…but IMO, the real butter comes in at the end when Unexpected pulls out 10 minutes of some Mean Joe Preem original samples. No matter how musically technical/technically inclined you may be…hearing how those dusty gems were fragmented and rearranged into the boom bap anthems most of us would recognize them as will definitely remind you of the man’s high science and why he should always be respected as nothing less than a legendary producer/DJ.
