Jules X – 50 Years of Hip Hop

Start listening

Here is a new guestmix by Jules X to celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop. It’s a mix of old and new hip hop and who they sampled from – featuring 55 records and clocking in at around 47 minutes.

The mix is built on connections of samples and hip hop tracks, for example the mix starts with a jazz track from Larry Willis which was made in 1973 (the birth year of hip hop). That track has a break with a sitar that has been used by the Gravediggaz and Tyler the Creator, which follow after the Larry Willis track. These two hip hop tracks also contain a drum break from the Lafayette Afro Rock Band, which will be heard right after. Tune in to this firework of hip hop and its origins!
