?uestlove's Sample Lesson Mix

Recommended Posts

This is probably old news but the first time I've heard it, ?uestlove's mix from the Gilles Peterson show back in September. Compiled purely of the original soul songs that have since been sampled by Hip Hop producers, it's pretty much essential listening.

cheers, downloading this now.

I've got a mix ?uestlove did at the WMC 2002 (or maybe 2003) floating around somewhere which is one of the best I've ever heard. If I can dig it out then I'll upload it and let you know.

Yes please!! :)

That mix made for good listening, nice one. Its actually pretty similar to the one I have from Miami, although the WMC one was recorded as part of a live set and therefore has a bit more of a party vibe. At the moment its on a tape 3000+ miles away from me so dunno when I'll be able to stick it on the net. Will let you know when I get a chance though!

As I promised this time last year I've finally uploaded this mix from way back in 2002.

The download link is here. And I've blogged a bit about it here.

Can't find a full tracklist on the internet, and I can't be arsed to write one myself, but this is still one of my favourite live sets, and given that I heard it back at the tender age of 16 that is some high praise. Well worth a look.

Sorry about the sendspace link, but yousendit is annoying with its little sign up thing.
