Legowelt's Memphis rap mix

Legowelt, the DJ from The Hague who has made some of the best psychedelic techno records of recent years has a new mix up, dedicated to rap music from Memphis, in its mid-90s heyday. Essential for fans of rap history, sunburn and tape explorations alike. Here’s how he described it:

Summer is coming so I made a little mix with my favorite 90s Memphis rap trax – one of the greatest music genres in history especially during its golden days circa 1993-1994. Think over the top OMINOUS John Carpenter basslines, more tape smudge and obscurity then all minimal wave records in history, enchanting inspiring melodies and pure unadulterated poetry. More then 50 minutes of the most obscure best Memphis Rap songs all mixed to perfection to play LOUD in your car -> cruising in your neighbourhood while u laugh and smirf at all the pedestrian jock bro mediocrity moving past you

Cheers for the tip, Angus Finlayson!
