DJ Wool – All Vinyl Breaks Mix

Aug 8 2011

Long ago, in a time before CDJ’s, DJ Controllers, Final Scratch and Serato, DJ Wool (half of The Glass and beatmaker for our recent Spoek collaboration) put together a bedroom apartment mix on a stupidly hot summer day in 2002, recorded from vinyl, using an MPC1000 for samples and a Digitech fx unit onto an Adat.

The tracks are a mixed bag of music that at the time were called “new school breaks” (though now, using the term ‘new school’ for something released in 2002 feels a bit strange) andd early 90’s hardcore/pre drumnbass.

Loaded with white label cuts, you can hear some DJ Phantasy, R&S Records, Ills, 2 Bad Mice, DJ ICEE, Squarepusher, Marine Parade, Krafty Kuts, Stanton Warriors, as well as lots of forgotten, misplaced or now-warped-beyond-recognition records. In addition, NYC Early Graffiti Writer Phase provides an intro that makes you feel like right at home in another era of dance music. Grab it below!
