SMOOVE – Main Sourced

 

This is simply one of the best 7″ vinyl releases in recent months. Grab it on vinyl while you can.

With 25 years passing since the release of Main Source’s Breaking Atoms, which is one of the most influential Hip Hop albums of all time.
DJ/Producer Smoove has crafted a detailed tribute cut and paste mix by meticulously sourcing the samples originally used to create the album.
Such a mean feat seemed like the impossible but after three months locked away in the studio, Smoove has delivered a full eight minutes and thirty seconds of organised madness!

Sit back and enjoy the ride… Main Sourced

7” vinyl and digital release: June 2017 Digital version
