This week, five tunes from this year(!) with the kind of beat and flow you were seeing 25 years ago. Ace. So many collabs going on at the moment, when I was putting this together it was tough to find something without Anderson .Paak on it. Hit play to hear DJ Shadow, De La Soul, Cordae, Dfonk, Smif n Wessun, Skyzoo, Pete Rock, Barney Artist and Anderson .Paak. Obvs. As ever you’ll need to be logged into Spotify to hear the full length at decent quality.

This week a Beastie Boys theme. What’s surprising about this is that nothing off Pauls Boutique has made the cut, despite it being my fave Beasties creation. Please enjoy Brass Monkey, Sabotage, Get It Together, Units and 3 MCs and 1 DJ - The tune that got me listening to scratch DJs, my own turntables and my record collection. Till next time five-fans.
