#nowplaying @BBE_Records @Mixcloud Competition Mix

Strangely enough, just after I’d done the Grand Central Session mix, Mixcloud announced this competition to make a mix from the BBE Records back catalogue.

I’ve been a huge fan of BBE for many years now so it sounded like my idea of heaven. I spent hours digging through my BBE records which left me with the difficult job of narrowing down such an unbelievably long list of great tracks into a mix that would fit onto a CD.

I was having to chose from some of my all time favorite tracks off some of my all time favorite records such as

J Dilla – The Shining
DJ Spinna – Here to There
King Britt – Adventures in Lo-FI
D’Nell – 1st Magic
Million Dollar Orchestra – Better Days
Osunlade – Aquarian Moon
Visioneers – Dirty Old Hip-Hop

I settled on the following track listing (hear the mix HERE)
Tracklist / Chapters
The Million Dollar Orchestra – Dontcha Wanna Get Down
Katalyst – How About Us Ft Steve Spacek
D’Nell – This Thing
King Britt – Transcend Ft Bahamadia
Dj Spinna – Love Is Sold
Rokstone – Soon Come(Several Small Fury Bugz Cooperating In The Attic Mix)
Osunlade – Aquarian Moon
Pete Rock – Pete’S Jazz
Dj Jazzy Jeff – Da Ntro
Will.I.Am – Lay Me Down (Ft. Terry Dexter)
Roy Ayres – Brand New Feeling
Madlib – The Way That I Live Ft Stacy Epps
Visioneers – The World Is Yours
Dj Jazzy Jeff – We Live In Philly
J Dilla – Won’t Do
Nicolay – Memory Lane

I trust you will enjoy the mix as much as I enjoyed putting it together, so please give generously, hit the favorite / LOVE button, leave a comment, tweet about it, and please spread the word!!

#NowPlaying Grand Central Session

Paying tribute to one of my favorite labels who sadly shut up shop in 2006. I was introduced to the label by the guys working in Fat City Records (owned by Mark Rae) when living in Manchester, and quickly started devouring their catalogue. It fueled a major passion for the music that lead me in all sorts of directions of music that I hadn’t previously been into.

I salute you Grand Central. R.I.P.
