Sent over from my dude, Matt Diamond.
Upcoming beat-smith Confidence is pleased to present his debut mixtape, ReCon. The MA-based beat-smith carefully resurrects 16 classic’s from the mid-90s on this hour long mix, all without compromising the authenticity of what made these tracks so iconic. For good measure, DJ Grazzhoppa, the 1991 European DMC champ, cuts & blends the tracks together, showcasing turntablism at its finest hour (celebrity DJs & Serato newbies need not apply). ReCon features some of the 90s most time-honored cuts from O.C.’s “Time’s Up”, Black Moon’s “How Many Emcees” & CNN’s “T.O.N.Y”, to some underground treasures circa the Stretch & Bobbito era, e.g. Big L’s “American Dream” & Big Noyd’s “Recognize & Realize”. The only thing ReCon is missing is a tape deck…don’t sleep!
