New tracks that DJs should know about.
It’s currently hip-hop month at BBC Radio 1Xtra and what better way to celebrate than with a mix from the legendary DJ Premier? Well, that’s exactly what Diplo & Friends did last weekend in what the Mad Decent head honcho said was “a long time coming.”
Despite what many would expect, the majority of the mix features rock songs from classic artists such as The Doors, Steve Miller, and Heart, followed by 90s favorites from the likes of Alice in Chains and Rage Against the Machine. All of the rock tunes have a groove and Premo cuts and juggles throughout.
Of course, there couldn’t be a Premo mix without hip-hop and the New York native made sure to include tracks by artists such as Nas, M.O.P., Joell Ortiz, Showbiz, among others.
