DJ Pings & Dephect-Mini Mix No. 1
In case you don’t know already, DJ Pings is the founder of one of the dopest independent Hip-Hop labels to ever emerge from the UK, King Underground Records. This mini mix is the first in a series, hopefully of many, and gives you a little taste of the music that Pings is into and the vibe that he represents through the label.
Originally I was just going to do these mini mixes for myself for some iPod action, but then I thought it might be nice to post them up via Dephect. The idea is that each mix will fit into the next, so it’s like an ongoing project. All very simple, not really about skills, just dope music, hip hop and breaks.

Flame Orange Route-Praha/Wien/Budapest
Flame is a paint brand used by us writers.They put together this look of some subway action in the cities listed.
This week I chose this Vimeo from AnimalNewYork that profiles PHADE of The Lengendary Shirt Kings.
Even if you’re not familiar with the Shirt Kings, chances are that you’ve heard of them before in a rap lyric, or seen their work in outfits donned by the likes of LL Cool J, Jay Z, RZA and Jam Master Jay (RIP). The legendary graffiti-inspired art crew from New York pioneered early hip hop fashion. Their custom air brushed designs were the early precursors to modern day streetwear, now a $60 billion industry, and are renowned for creating one-off designs for New York personalities who would later reign as the crème de la crème of rap royalty.
