    I'm downloading your mix now Dilla. I don't know why I couldn't the last couple of days. I could get to the mediafire side and click "start download" but it wouldn't start download till now. I'll listen to the mix in a couple of minutes, looking forward to it.

    This place has been idle for a minute so I decided to come up with my own playlist...

    What goes for this list is the sounds... hard hitting instrumentals... it's a treat for real music lovers

    Enjoy

    Just finished listening to your mix. It was dope. Great start with the George Benson song. Nice to see J-Live on it. Of the songs I hadn't heard before I liked International and More Colors

    Thanks bro...

    'Colors' was DJ Spinna feat. Elzhi ( a lyrical beast on the MIC)

    Lots of hard truths in that song...

    Was gutted I couldn't listen to your mix on my Mac. I'm going to try and convert them on someones pc. Couldn't find any that worked on my Mac. If push comes to shove, I'll buy some software though.

    Elzhi song sounds good!

    Thanks Ninja, thought you'd really enjoy it :tu

    I enjoyed putting it together, I had it all downloaded but never get the chance to listen as much as of late, so was a good way of forcing myself into making the time to do so.

    What's some of your favourites Ninja?

    Michita and re: plus stuff is really nice, good shout on getting their stuff!

    I'd be interested in hearing the remix too.

    Is it your mix next? Possibly place the remix on that :tu

    I made this mix with dj's in mind. It features some of my favorite dj's of all time. The track numbers got fucked up so it may not flow like I wanted but hopefully it will give you guys some expose to some of my favortie dj's and shine some light on the guys that dont get the credit they deserve. Tracks ranch anywhere from beats to breaks to raw turntablism. hope you guys enjoy!!

    *Note - left off the japanese dj's since ruff draft made a whole mix to them

    Fair play, theres definitely worse teams you could support (namely united ha)
