      Thanks again for taking time to listen, the 'Chief Rockers' mix was done in 2005, the 'MC Stories' mix was done in 2008.


      Thanks for the information, simmo!

      I've got another question about the Chief Rockers mix. I recognize nearly all the tracks but what's the tune playing from about 2:20 until 4:08? During that time there are samples of Rap-O-Matic Ltd. - Lies, Lies, Mixmaster Gee - Manipulator and Kurtis Blow - Tough, but what is that music playing in the back? Sounds great to me. :)
    • That track is 'Beyond the Future' by the Latin Rascals, a fantastic track and a real favourite of mine. It's a funny one because it only appears on some versions of the 'Bach to the Future' 12", on some versions the flip is labelled Side B with a remix of 'Bach to the Future' on other versions the flip is labelled Side C with 'Beyond the Future'. It shouldn't be too difficult to pick up a copy if you want one.

      Here is an mp3 of the track...

      That's true, it really wasn't difficult because I already had this 12" in my collection! ;D

      I didn't remember this track, it must have been years ago when I listened to that record. But it's really a great tune. Thanks for the information and the full tracklist!

      Play this only at night/On fire.... oh fuck!! genius.. sounds great.


      I like this part to, haven't played them all the way thru yet, but solid mixes so far, and great overall tracklistings.

      What's the Piano instr. over the Stet, is that the Doug E? It sounds very familiar.

      Yeah it's 'Play this only at Night' by Doug E Fresh, but he took the music from the movie soundtrack to Phantasm so that's where you may have heard it.
    • Didn`t realise you were Simmo from OSHH,welcome back pal,you`re a Chelsea fan IIRC?

      Like everyone else says Chief Rockers & Monster Beats is absolutely DOPE,you sent me a CD of it at the time and it still gets played regularly ...... one of the best mixes of Hip Hop i`ve heard.

      Will D/L these other mixes tomorrow if they`re still `live`.
      Live from TTO studios

      Alright Kaos, hows things with you? Long time no talk.

      Thanks for the comments about the 'Chief Rockers' mix, I'm well chuffed to hear people are still listening to it and rate it so highly, especially people like yourself who know their sh1t and have been into the rap game for a lifetime.

      Yeah I'm a massive Chels fan, went to most home games last season and a few away, one of the best seasons I can remember although it was a bit tighter at the end than I would have liked. The pubs around the ground were absolutely mental on the last day when we beat Wigan 8-0 and inside the ground is the best I have ever seen it, what great day!! I'm sure you won't agree being a Manure fan ha ha.

      I will put up fresh links for the 'NY v LA Beats' mixes.
    • Alright spats, yeah we met once at one of the gigs at Gloucester a few years back plus I used to come on here and OSHH.

      Joey Cole has gone, not sure where yet though, seems Spurs or the Arsenal are favourites to pick him up, I would be happy for him to go back to the Hammers.

      We will keep hold of Lamps though, cheers!!
