After growing up surrounded by hip-hop, in my late teens I moved to a place where underground hip-hop heads were scarce, and I primarily had to rely on myself to find under-the-radar emcees and producers. Without much in the form of exterior stimulation, I used mixes as a way to listen closer to new musical finds. I made a number of mixes in the tape era, but with the first CD-burner I purchased in ’98 or so, hip-hop mixes for myself became routine. They were quickly assembled and provided with no tracklist; simply labeled in numeric order starting with “Mix One.” In time they were scratched to shit and disposed of – the only ones I can find to this day are “Thirteen” and “Eighteen.” This month’s mix is a retake on “Mix Eighteen,” which probably dates back to around 2005. Some of the selections already found their way on to this site in the form of January 2009, but this form should fit them better. If you didn’t know before, I guess you know now.
