Milk Crate Presents - Millkmatic (A Collection Of Milk Crate Remixes)

Milk Crate Presents - Millkmatic (A Collection Of Milk Crate Remixes)

I guess you could say this CD is along the same lines as Frankenstein's Live From New York Project as it features Remixes of known tracks courtesy of DJ's Flatline & KendeR. I'll go with The East Flatbush Project as my favorite Remix on this CD and I can't front, that Interlude beat is dope too! Enjoy!

Turntable Wizardry Stage 1: Ft Q-Bert, Shortkut, Rhettmatic, Babu & Melo-D

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is one of the first instructional videos on Scratching and DJ'ing. This is from around 95/96 and was put out with the help from Vestax and Up Above Records. You get a brief discussion on DJ'ing, Turntable Setups, Beat Matching, How To Scratch, A Solo Routine from each DJ with a Team Routine from Babu & Melo-D plus the video for Key Kool & DJ Rhettmatic's - Can U Hear It?! Shout out to the big homey B_ill for all the DJ Videos he lent me back in the day!

Justo Presents The Mixtape Documentary

Since Gildog blessed us with Mr Freeze's 12th Anniversary Party, I thought I would drop another Documentary where you can put some more faces to those Mixtape DJ's names. I know the Diggers Union have been posting some clips from this Doc but here it is in full for anyone who hasn't checked this out. A great behind the scenes look at the mixtape game from the prespective of the DJ's themselves. R.I.P. Justo! Thanks for your contribution to the Mixtape game...

DJ Melo-D - The A.M. Workshop (2001)

I was a big fan of Melo-D's Turnfable Mixtape from 97 and was wondering when he was gonna drop a new tape. Fast forward a few years and Melo is backatcha with a couple more mixtapes fresh for the new millenium. He dropped Aquaboogie in 2000 which you can find here courtesy of my man Bzrwon & The A.M. Workshop in 2001. Now Aquaboogie was more on the funk tip so it was nice to see Melo back with some Hip Hop. 60 minutes cut up Beat Junkie style! Enjoy!
