Spent a good chunk of time listening to this over the Christmas, it's one of a series of mixes released online under the title of the Chopshop Podcasts. Volume 5 in the series comes from DJ Half Dutch, I'm not going to say much about it apart from the fact that it's real soulful, full of old skool vibes from the likes of Kurtis Blow and with some very tasty exotica beats from that master of the favella beat DJ Sandhrino. In parts there's an odd soundtrack feel off it, or so I thought till a mate ensconced in Jeff Chang's history of the first hip hop generation Can't Stop Won't Stop, explained to me that releases from Ennio Morricone, especially his Apache were big DJ tools back in the day. Definitely my favorite mix of the past while, the perfect thing to sneak up and garrote you from behind with sneaky progressions on a night out.
