Here is Part 1 of the Best of 2017. A mix of some of my favourite Mash-up, Re-edits and hip hop of last year.
Still buying a lot of 7″ vinyl, so thought I ‘d do another all vinyl 45’s mix… that just happen’s to be 45 mins long 😉
An ongoing series of fist punching, foot kicking Kung Fu Ninja madness.
Combining only the finest in Funk, and HipHop jams, this mixtape took us way too long to get organised, with many hours of back and forth track organising, editing, working out keys and getting that perfect mix down tight.
So wind up that punch and charge that foot for some Kung Fu fighting action!
