Ahead of De La Soul’s very own DJ Maseo spinning an exclusive UK set for The Doctor’s Orders @ East Village on 19th October (info & tickets HERE) Spin Doctor has once again created this incredible ‘Brakes Is High’ mix in tribute to one of the most influential Hip-Hop groups of all time.
A chronological blend of over 60 De La Soul classics and the original breaks used to create them from their fist four albums; ‘3 Feet High & Rising’, ‘De La Soul Is Dead’, ‘Buhloon Mindstate’ & ‘Stakes Is High’ & coming in at around 1 hour 45 mins this is a must for anyone with a love of Hip-Hop, Jazz Soul & the art of sampling.
Following the blueprint laid down by his ‘Breaks Beats Rhymes & Life’ Tribe called Quest tribute mix (check that HERE) which has had a total of 5500 plays and listens this is set to be another classic so get involved!
” De La Soul are simply one of the best and most influential groups of all genre’s never mind just Hip-Hop. ‘3 Feet High’ is one of those albums that everyone owns whether they are heads or not and to follow that stone cold classic with such a consistently high quality of output right up to the present day takes some doing. I don’t know what they are plugged into but I am a fan and hope this mix shows a little of that passion!” Spin Doctor
