    This is something I have been wanting to do for a long while now, but just recentley have found the time to actually knock it out proper. I have been listening and collecting Hip-Hop music for over 20 years and feel compelled to share my knowledge and love for this culture to anyone who wants to listen.

    I plan to make each volume in and unique to itself with a focus on each specific and important era, style and fad of Hip-Hop. Starting from the early party rap/electro days to the current era of the genre with every stop your'e hoping for, in between.

    Those years will be well covered, no worries. This episode will definitely be the most brief of the bunch. I certainly enjoy the early years as much as the next man does(I think), but the majority of the records released at that time were very redundant. Either they were all using very similar breaks or they were using very similar cadence and "call and response" style. I probably could have slid a few more important records of that era, but I think that I covered it with the major tracks of that time.

    sounds good - reminds me of the History of Hip Hop series that The Rub did where they make a mix for every year of hip hop from 79 to 09.

    Been getting more into thematic mixes myself - just seems a little more interesting and challenging than just making a mix of tunes or showcasing a genre...

    This is going to be great. I actually played "The Breaks" during a set at a mainstream club last night. The venue usually reacts best to 128 bpm pop/dance, but there was a big group dancing that wanted to hear stuff like "Adventures On The Wheels Of Steel," etc.

    I'll be checking back regularly to grab all of these. Many thanks in advance ...

    I will be taking this mix down later today in order to make room on my Soundcloud account. If you wanna gran this then do it soon, ok? I will make it available again later if people are still looking for it.
