Some old school hip hop to get you going for the weekend. From the Solid Steel:
DJ Food turns back the clock in our 25th Anniversary slot and following a request for an old school Hip Hop set for the De:Tuned party in Antwerp earlier this week, Strictly Kev put this special party mix together to rock the dancefloor. Solid Steel however gets an exclusive to kick things off in the form of excerpts from his first ever recorded mix, unheard by anyone except close friends and hidden on tape for 25 years.
Back in ’87 his DJ (and graffiti) name was D-Vice and the ‘Soundlab mix’ (named after his 2nd mixer, made by Soundlab) was made between 1987-88 on his first two belt-driven decks (only one with a pitch control) and a pause button tape deck. A Strictly Old School Special.
Now we all know the theme song from The fresh prince but i bet you haven’t heard it like this…
From the youtube page:
In the geekiest experiment ever, CDZA co-founder Joe Sabia shows us what happens when we translate the lyrics of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through every language in Google Translate (64 times), and then taking what remains and translating it BACK into English.
Featuring Jeremie Harris as Will Smith.
Technically speaking, all but the first verse were translated. The lyrics were translated from English to the world’s most spoken language (Mandarin), to the second most (Spanish), to the third most, to the fourth most, ETC, putting all 64 languages in order by finding the demographic population size on every language on Wikipedia.
The last translation we put it through was “Esperanto”, because apparently, only 10,000 people speak it.
No one has an official language of “Latin”, but we had to assume a lot of people are still able to speak it. So that was a bit ambiguous.
Proper Nouns never really changed. Neither did numbers, as you can tell in the last stanza, “7,8”.
We have no idea why we did this.
I’ve posted a Sampology mix before called Bruceocolypse which has been a firm favourite of mine over the last few months. Anyway i though it best to go back and check what the Australian has been up to and lo and behold he’s come out with another treat for us all to get down to. Hats off my man!!
Boom!! The Herbaliser are back with a new album which is definitely worth a listen. This is one of the tracks off the new album and features Canadian duo Teenburger. Directed by Caley Maclenan and shot on location in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Now i know we are passed Christmas but I’ve just got around to listening to this absolute stormer of a mix from DJ Irk and definitely worth turning up and freaking out to. From the man himself:
Had some time on my hands when I finished making the mix, so I went back and turned the scratch skits in to short videos, using the original TV and film footage. Here they are, check em out!…

A banging mix from the wiseguy himself Fake Blood which aired on the Diplo & Friends mix show on BBC 1 xtra and after yesterdays funky jazz mix i thought i’d put the 4 to the floor and really kick Tuesday in to the middle of the week. Enjoy!
Dj Moneyshot has been a firm favourite of mine ever since i found a mixtape of his on the internet a few years a go and this mix is no different. Another bobby belter from the mixtape king!! Check out more of his stuff here.
About this mix from djnodj:-
We @ Tunawax & djnodj.com have long held the belief that a basic measure of a good dj is that they are not bound to a genre or a bpm. It’s straight up garbage to listen to an hour set of one type of music that doesn’t change tempo. You ever see a “DJ” play a song and then flip the record to play the B Side from the same artist??? No? Well that’s becasue all your djs play computers now. I’m not hating, I’m just saying… It’s one of the reason’s we’ve been down with DJ Moneyshot and his well done mixtapes (Previously posted); he’s got skill and know how to keep it interesting. Another factor in the mix is track selection and obviously we’re the best at that, so I’m tickled as tiny titties that Mr. Moneyshot himself has dug through our library of posted songs and put together what might just be the best mixtape EVR, EVR. I know you’re thinking I’m bias, right? Well I’m not….erm… um… ok, I am bias. But sheeeit bish, this is perhaps the most winningest collab since poles & girls with daddy issues!!! Presenting: DJ Moneyshot – Natural Selection (From the Files of DJnoDJ.com)
I can’t share this mix here but if you head over to the link you can listen and download to your hearts content.
