Hip hop history lesson


I know I’m prone to hyperbole, but this has to be the best, and most comprehensive hip hop mix I’ve ever heard in my whole entire life.

Chris Read, long time promoter and resident DJ at Substance, has put together a magnificently well chopped up mix starting all the way back at the beginning of hip hop and blending his way, classic after classic, all the way up to today. I suggest you download it here and spend the rest of the day nodding like the Churchill dog. Ohhhhhhhhh yes.



  1. Cant wait to listen to this when i get home. Your blog is now a regular feature in my daily routine. keep up the good work dude, loved the misty mountain mix btw. ruuuuuuuud boi

    • Thanks dude. Lovely to know someone is digging it. How’s life at Endemol?

  2. everythings cool, im workin on big brother again, just spent the afternoon administering electric shocks to housemates in spandex body suits. very rewarding. choons wise at the minute im diggin Rusko, Scroobius Pip and Fujiya & Miyagi.

    whats happened to hip hop man? i think Nas was right, and it might be dead.
