DOWNLOAD: Breaks & Snacks Vol. 2 (mixtape)
I started working on this tape over a year ago. People seemed to dig the first one (thank you egotripland!), and it was fun to make, so I figured I’d cut up a few more random breaks and funky records for a sequel. After laying down the music, it still seemed missing something, and so I started going back and adding vocal samples and audio clips, from both vinyl and digital sources. There is an old clip of De La Soul being interviewed on NPR where Dave and Maceo talk about the ways djs and producers buy and dig for records, and it inspired me to search further for related – and unrelated – soundbites. In the end, this tape is kind of an adventure through the world of record-buying, classic movies, 90s Grammy award ceremonies, and b-side rap accapellas, all over a backdrop of breakbeats direct from my personal crates. Like the first mix, the bulk of the mixing was done using Serato but everything besides the interview clips is from original wax.
