45 King-Boiler Room NYC-Set *Official Video

We visited legendary hip-hop producer & 7″ encyclopedia, The 45 King, at his home in New Jersey for an extended DJ set. This guy has produced some of the biggest hip-hop tracks of the past 25 years (Stan, Hard Knock Life, The 900 Number) so it was a stand-up pleasure for him to grace us with an exclusive mix.

45 King also provided these 2 outtakes from the session

Now Again sais:

The Last Transmission, presented as a vocal album and an expanded instrumental selection on a bonus disc, can be taken as both the band’s interpretation of Van Peebles’ poem and a musical voyage inspired by Van Peebles’ vivid imagery. The band considers it their defining work, the result of more than a decade of playing and recording together. They’ve found a voice as a band, one that meshes with Van Peebles,’ as he weaves an intergalactic “Rime of the Ancient Mariner.”

Sheep sais:

This was an spur of the moment practice session that was never to be given to the public, just to listen to later for ideas… no playlists, no preparation… A few mates enjoyed it whom I sent it to and prompted me to get it out there… Please excuse all the sloppy mixes, cuts, etc. I wanted to keep it raw like the mixes of the 90’s… feedback is appreciated.

Sheep sais:

All done in one take, no preparation, just a erratic journey into the mind of a beat obsessed, scratchaholic OCD record junkie with a super short attention span. A lot of ground is covered on this mix… a gang of samples, both used and unused, library records, soul, funk, disco, hip-hop, australian records, japanese stuff, drum breaks, b-boy breaks, bongo breaks, turntablist works, electronic stuff, some mega RAER acapella blends with funk loops on the fly… and a couple of fresh new beats from djHONDA and Matty Fresh…

RESPECT to the break mix originators: Phil “Soulman” Stroman, Silverchild & MSA, Jake One, DJ Muro, Kon & Amir, DJ Shame, Paul Nice, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist.

If you wanna get a MP3, or drop me a donation to the cau$e, drop me a line, djsheep@gmail.com. Peace. Stay High.

TF sais:

Team Fearless presents the first single, “Got’m Say’n Hey”, to the upcoming album by Devastating Tito (Fearless 4) and Mikey D’Struction (LA Posse/Main Source/Elements Of Hip Hop). Produced by Large Professor, this track is a great precursor for the upcoming project.

VF sais:

In an exclusive interview with VF.com, Michael “Mike D” Diamond of the Beastie Boys remembers the “bizarre” turn of events that claimed the lives of rap icons the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur—and ushered in a violent new era for hip-hop.The Beastie Boys founder also reflects on the decade of the 90’s notable developments, and explains why you just can’t wear spandex at a gas station anymore.Mike D also describes the scrappy (and maybe not so legal) shoot for Spike Jonze’s groundbreaking tribute to 70s cop shows, and explains why the world wasn’t ready for Paul’s Boutique.

World Champion RoxRite and friends get down and do what they do best . BREAK !
