The homie Skinny Friedman crafted a little mix to illustrate what the human brain sounds like when living on “greek yogurt and prescription amphetamines,” only. Definitely something for the twerkers out there, though don’t expect yourself to just be left at the hands of a popular, uptempo rap single or two…this shit makes some crazy shifts through the land of bass. Furthermore, it also features a few joints that Skinny slapped together for his upcoming release, TRAP RAVE 3.0 (drops in May).
By the way, it’s a mix…that is actually MIXED (kinda rare).

Clams Casino recently spun a short (instrumental) guest set for BBC Radio 1 which could very well play as a chunky introduction piece to those who have yet to really connect the dots. From ASAP Rocky & Main Attrakionz to yet-to-be-heard gooey clouds of echoey distortion.

Mark The 45 King IS the Mr. Wizard of flippin’ wax (whether in DJ or producer mode). No question, the man knows his records…
But first, let me throw some historical context into the program by starting this post off with some fresh ’89 interview footage from the UK TV show, Rapido, rife with plenty of awkward quotables (most of which illustrate the fact that hip hop was just starting to reach across those Atlantic waters…”doing strange things to that Madonna record”). This was really a feature on Queen Latifah, but like most MC’s back then, her DJ was next to her with plenty of artistic reign. They speak on the science behind their names, La’s musical upbringing and stylistic range, house music, and the Flavor Unit and Native Tongues collectives.
Cut to a bit later (pretty recently, I assume), I bring you a clip of the Flavor Unit godfather exhibiting his supreme aptitude for dishing out the breaks with speed and precision. Now do you understand what it means to know your records?
Now, to the feature presentation…
While you new type cats can only rock steady blends with computer screens, preset cue points and loops, and specialized mixers (on two 1200′s, or CDJ’s, no less), the GOD kills all that noise on some tiny portable joints and a stack of 45′s. All vinyl, all seamless…straight vinyl archery with his needle drops. Put a speedometer on him.
Big shouts to my man CV for puttin’ me onto that last clip.
This is as official a Gang Starr/Guru tribute can get (as well as a follow-up post to a freestyle over a Gang Starr track)…I mean, it’s fuckin’ DJ Premier tearing out multiple pages of the epic catalog that he and his ace-boonie authored for that decade and change and rebinding them live on Funkmaster Flex‘s Hot 97 show. As with most special Flex “throwback” type events, expect a lot of entertaining on-air interaction + memory lane shit.
