Every so often a DJ mix can reach the same legendary status as some of the tracks contained within it. These days with the internet I agree it is easier to grab some of the dopest mixes available, but that also means trawling through numbers of poorly executed mixes in search of a gem.
Certain mixes such as DJ IVORY's "HEAR NO EVIL" and TRIPL DOUBLE & DIPLO's "AEIOU" have in the last few years caused such a
stir with vinyl collectors that the rarer records featured on the mixes make huge sums of money following the exposure. But that's the sign of a record hunter getting his shit right in my opinion - knowing what type of beats people want to hear. So props to those dudes for making "mixtapes" that go way beyond just a selection of music.
One of the mixes I have personally found inspiring over the last 5 years is the excellent "Rock Science" by STEEN ROCK from Copenhagen, Denmark. I must have rocked this mix over a hundred times and still I'm in awe of how dope it is. A serious collection of heavy rock breaks, blended to perfection with a multitude of treats and super tight cuts over the top. I defy you not to like this. This mix originally featured on the Soulstrut forum back in 2005, but I think it's time to give it a little shine and spread the word. Enjoy!
