Dunfyboy's Old School Electro & Hip Hop Mix

Download from MediaFire.

AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH! More router problems: no wireless connection, dropped lines halfway through an upload. It's doing my head in. If BT ever offer you a Home Hub, tell them to stick it up their arse!!! This mix should have been upped right after my DJ Shadow Mix. Anyway ...

On my travels round the net I stumbled on an old school electro mix by a guy called Bamboo. Check it out at Def Momentum's blog.

It made me want to do my own electro mix, which I kinda haven't done as I wouldn't really class all these tracks as electro (hence the mix name) and "Walking On Sunshine" wouldn't have sounded out of place on my Classic House Mix, but they're all from the early 80s and it all comes together in another awesome Dunfyboy mix. (Nothing wrong with a bit of shameless self-promotion, right?)

There's about a dozen or so songs that feature on both Bamboo's and my own mixes, but I'd still recommend downloading both mixes (mine first, obviously :-)

Anyway, here it is. Enjoy.

***EDIT*** Blogger have killed Def Momentum's blog. Guess someone reported him for sharing out of print 12"s. Twats. Anyway, if you want to get the page with Bamboo's mix on it, it's still in Google's cache so click here
***EDIT 2*** Even the cached page is gone now, but here's a link I found for it http://collectiveindustries.com/mixes/Bamboo_LastNightADjSavedMyLife_Mix.mp3

On a rather unrelated note, have you thought about doing an EPMD mix. DJ Scratch is underrated IMO. I saw him live with EPMD and he went off before their set. Definitely got the crowd moving.

Haven't dl'ed this yet but the tracklisting looks good.
#19 is a personal favourite of mine.

BTW I'm a bit wary of 128kbp MP3's. Are all your mixes at the same bitrate?
I'm an audio snob, sorry :/
