DJ Mek - UK Hip Hop Flashbacks Pt.1 (Mix)

What DJ Mek's saying:

"Been meaning to tackle some UK rap classics for ages and finally got round to knocking up some mixes. This is part one of a 3 part set. Most of the old school UK rap mixes doing the rounds seem to focus on the ‘britcore’ style (angry raps/ noisy loops/ frantic scratching). I’ve included a few of those jams (Systematic Terror & You Need Discipline), but i tried to focus more on the midtempo steppers for this one.

All of these tunes will be familiar to brit-rap diehards but were largely ignored outside of the UK
. It’s a shame because some of them were way ahead of the curve. Part two will go a bit deeper into the ragga hip hop vibes. enjoy."
