Subwayz Old School - New School B-Boy Breaks Mix

Subwayz Old School - New School B-Boy Breaks Mix

This is the longest mix that I've managed to do so far, clocking in at over three hours. I wanted to incorporate a wide variety of tunes that encapsulate my world of breakbeat. It gave me the perfect opportunity to slot in some of my personal favourite tunes. Well, there's not one tune in this tracklisting that I don't like, however there are a few tracks on here by artists that I specifically wanted to feature for different reasons. One such song was Wordy Rappinghood by Tom Tom Club, (with the chorus,"Ran sumsumsa Ran sumsum, Hootycooty hootycooty Ran sumsum, Hi kye yay yippie yi kye yay, Awoo awoo ayee kie chi.") which was originally recorded by Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz, (both of Talking Heads) and Steven Stanley back in 1981, and has always remained a firm favourite of mine. Ewan Hoozami's EP, released on Goodgroove Records is another favourite of mine. It gave me immense pleasure to incorporate I Can't Help It in the mix. Reality Testing by Lone is an album from last year which was absolutely phenominal, I jumped at the chance of adding a couple of tracks, which I mixed with Ten Tigers by Bonobo. I am a huge fan of Lakker and Eomac, I think that their output has been nothing short of extraordinary, so I wanted to feature a couple of tracks by these two amazingly talented technoheads who are just fantastic. 

There are more than a few tracks in this mix which contain some excellent old school hip hop edits and breaks from brilliant artists like Tek 9, DJ Self, Jeep Beat Collective and Smoove (among many others!) which helped in creating a nolstalgic hi-tempo transition between nu and old school breaks.

I was happy-ish with this mix. The start with Tek 9 could have been better, and there's a few places where I should have done better, but on the whole, considering that it's over three hours long I thought I did alright?

So I might do a drum n bass mix next. I want to do an old school drum n bass mix and at some point I want to do a downtempo breaks mix featuring Boards of Canada, Lnrdcroy and a few more artists.
