Happy Monday y’all! We have a really good mix for you guys today… this one is called Beats, Vibes & Crates Vol.2 mixed by DJ KS. Very dope mix with a really cool vibe, just check the track list after the jump and you’ll see why we were first drawn to it.
“When I say Beats, Vibes and Crates has no format, I mean it… this mix features some Hip-Hop, Soul and Slow Jams, there is a continuity to the mix though. Starts off with some Jay Dee aka J Dilla, 90s productions, then comes in the original flipped on Stakes is High, opening up a selection of jazz and soul: Mystic Brew is sampled on Tribe’s “Electric Relaxation”, Minnie Riperton “Inside my love” sampled on Tribe’s “Lyrics to Go” (also flipped by Dilla on “The Look of Love” and by many others), “Girl I think the world about you” is sampled on De La Soul’s “Buddy” (and yes I was pretty happy with myself, when I had the idea of throwing those Commodores drums over Minnie Riperton’s break). “Don’t Stop Loving Me” by LTD sampled for Poor Righteous Teachers, “Human Nature” of course flipped by Large Pro for Nas, Debarge’s “Stay with me” sampled on Biggie’s “One More Chance”, James Ingram sampled on MF Doom “Rhymes Like Dimes”, but overall this mix ends with some nice slow jams for you all to chill along with your soul mate ; if you happen to make babies on this mix maybe you can name the baby after me… just kidding.
This is all vinyl, sorry if that ‘Find a Way’ sounds used, it’s because it is. Even though I own 4 copies of this record, I’ve juggled them a lot over the years and the grooves are damaged. The mix is edited clean like out of the french dry cleaner. Peace out.” -DJ KS
