This mix comes at the inspiration of some very good people working with what seems like ease to make a culture out of thin air that rivals what people coordinate for years to obtain. In dedication to Paul Somers, Jeremiah Jenkins and a host of many others that work make something for themselves rather than wait for the "handout" that never comes to those who don't punch the clock or put their work in. This also dedicated to the dope vibe that frankly will be on people's radar very soon in a little town off 81 North. Cheers P.

A couple of months ago,i was in a heavy into the much debated aspects or main arguments of what "hiphop" is and whether or not its dead conversation with some fellow DJ brethren and hiphop heads. Needless to say, the context was stirring and full of healthy argument in regards to the present day of hiphop. We did our usual "remember back in day" shit, clinked our 40 oz.'s of High life on my balcony and proceeded to exchange our tales of trial and tribulations in the game of Djaying/Producing.

It occured to me in that moment in time that we never rocked the old stuff anymore. Most cats have all the staples of the old stuff like Rapper's Delight and Grandmaster Flash's the message but the heartbeat and the feel of hiphop back in the day had a fever that we rarely see today. I remember the battles, the breakers, forming my own bboy crew in elementary school back in Texas...there was a motivating intensity to build your skill and knowledge all in the name of out shining your homeboys/girls.As a friend who grew up in the early 80's in the Bronx says.."We did hiphop for need, not the greed...it made us stronger people back then."

There we were talking like old fogeys on a porch in rocking chairs about the good ole' days and we weren't even rocking the stuff that got us here... As a matter of fact, most djays that have been around for a minute don't even know alot of the crews and pioneers from back in the day.
A couple of days later i started researching some old cuts,spending alot of time at BROADWAY reading liner notes on the sugar hill label and picking up anything i could.

I wanted to introduce this mix to a hiphop audience that doesnt know anything about early hiphop or thinks that hiphop comes from the 90's. When it comes to making niche mixes involving stuff you've never heard of, people tend to get skiddish around these parts. It painful to hear people talk about how down they are with hiphop, you pop in a Schooly D cassette on and they act like you listen to country music because they've never heard of him.
You have to go back to the 70's to see hiphop from the beginning. Thats the bottom line.
Regardless of your placing of hiphop, this mix is for everyone who can appreciate how far we (the people in birth from this culture) have come in 40 years.
