Mix Of The Day

Questlove “Lost Samples BBC Radio 1 Mix”

Hip-Hop Soul

Let’s face it, the whole doing a “samples” mix has been to death. One of the main reasons i’ve never done one of those mixes is that there are tons of people out there who are just untouchable in that sphere (J Rocc, Muro, Paul Nice, etc.) but hey, this one is from Questlove so what the hell.

It’s a really nice way to start a saturday morning and although it’s not focused on the suuuper rare stuff, it’s a really nice personal trip through the history of samples and focuses more on GOOD samples rather than rare for the sake of rare. Anyways… Real nice!
