Mixtape Madness #1 – Itchy & Skratchy DJs / Shhh! Mixtape 2011

I spend quite a lot of time digging to find new tunes for my shows, and quite often this involves listening through tons of mixes. I’m lucky enough to have a job where I can get away with sitting at my desk plugged in to my iPod ploughing through the reams and reams I download, picking up the odd gem here and there, but most of them are a bit ‘meh’.

Sometime however you pick up a belter, and I thought that in order to save you from the dross, I’d throw up some of the good ones I’ve found over the years up on the blog for your enjoyment. So from today, every few weeks I’ll try to post a new one for you – it might be new, it might be old , but it’ll be a cracking selection of tunes.

I’d been considering doing this for a while, but the mix the mix that prompted me to get off my arse and start posting is this the latest offering from the Itchy and Skratchy DJs (aka Jackatak, Hame One & Antidote).

In their Shhh! Mixtape they give you an hour or so of the finest beats and breaks running through the genres from 90’s Hip-Hop, Ghetto Funk, Breaks, Dubstep and more, layered and pieced together with almost clinical precision. The sheer number of tracks they manage to squeeze in the time is impressive to say the least, and the flow is fantastic. Get involved below.
