edited February 2011 in The Essence
  1. Battle Cry - Joell Ortiz
  2. Incoming Message - Son of Ran and The Messangers
  3. Hatred - Mr. Lif
  4. Purexed - P.O.S
  5. Angel of Death - Eligh
  6. Bottle Dreams - Eyedea
  7. Hip Hop - Royce Da 5'9"
  8. Thug Fantasy - Reef The Lost Cauze
  9. My Fantasy - Freestyle Fellowship
  10. Smoke and Mirrors - RJD2
  11. Drumroll (We're All Thirsty) - P.O.S
  12. Beast Mode - Akrobatik Feat. Mr. Lif
  13. The I.V. - Braille
  14. Ghostwriter - RJD2
  15. Comtine D'un Autre Ete L'apres Midi - Yann Tiersen
  16. November - Sadistik

This mix is mainly harder than what I would post normally, with a few of my usual laid back tracks, the beats on Mr. Lif's 'Hatred' and Akrobatik's 'Beast Mode' featuring Mr. Lif are definitely fitting of the mix title; P.O.S stops by to increase the rawness with two efforts: 'Purexed' and 'Drumroll' along with Braille (The IV) and the Freestyle Fellowship (My Fantasy). Despite the rawness in full flow at times, I've slowed the mix down with Eyedea's 'Bottle Dreams' which has a depressing storyline but retains a melodic sound and Sadistik's 'November' which borrows from the Amelie soundtrack. But for the most part, this mix is in Beast Mode with RJD2 bolstering the instrumentals and Joell Ortiz showing his battle raps can convert well to tracks with 'Battle Cry'.

Hope you enjoy the mix :tu

    Eligh and Royce were the highlights.

    You're knowledge of Underground cats is pretty impressive. Props.
