Mattic (US & FR) & Shift (UK) dig deep in the vaults to explore unreleased music from Mattic’s studio located in Northern France. Alongside never before heard solo material the mix also features tracks which have never seen the light of day by “The Others” and “ZKPRZ”. On production duties “Madwreck & The Mighty DR” drop a consistently high standard of jazzy and soulful beats that would sit proudly on any top flight hip hop album.
This half hour selection will please fans of Pete Rock & CL Smooth, DJ Premier and Madlib. Highlights of the mix include the penultimate track “Mutations” featuring Marina Quaisse which is reminiscent of The 6th Sense by Common and the Marvin Gaye sampling “Tea With Marvin” with its strong anti boasting message and criticism of modern day artists priorities.
