Steinski - Nothing To Fear - A Rough Mix
Steinski - Nothing To Fear - A Rough Mix
(bootleg CD/MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) Soul T'ing CDSTEINNOTH, 2007-04-04

Info :
I sincerily hope you've heard about the man Steinski before, through his famous megamixes with Double Dee ['The Payoff Mix', 'Lesson 2 (The James Brown Mix)', 'Lesson 3 (The History Of Hiphop)', 'Jazz'], through his releases with Mass Media ['The Motorcade Sped On', 'We'll Be Right Back', 'Let's Play It Cool', 'It's Up To You']. Those were incredible, exceptional and amazing cut'n'paste bombs launched during the 80s and the 90s. If you haven't heard these, it's still high time to educate yourselves. Thankfully, they're all available out there in blogs, on the p2p and such...

Steinski is indeed one of the pioneers of sample-based breaks mixes that have been flourishing with the advent of file-spreading. I've had the chance to meet him in Paris during his Red Bull Academy course, thanks to Fred Elalouf's Ping Pong agency, and when I contacted him to come and join the Paris DJs party, he got hooked with the concept of 30 mn thematic mixes right away. He offered us to put up one of his past mixes to advertise the new one he'll especially cook for for us in a few months time!

We've chosen to re-play the 'Nothing To Fear - A Rough Mix' program he had done for Coldcut's legendary Solid Steel Radio show from a few years back. The mix has been bootleged on CD and vinyl at the time. We've split it in two parts and had Grant Phabao mastering it for mp3 podcasting. Here's the first half. Enjoy!

Tracklisting :
01. Tonight From NY Intro
02. Swingset (10 Beautiful Girls Mix)
03. Opening Credits
04. Greatest Man Alive (Man's Game Mix)
05. The ID (Small World Mix)
06. Let's Get It On (Big Daddy Mix)
07. Hit The Disco (MC Enuff Mix)
08. Lolita (Burning Mix)
09. Hot Spot (Terrible Love Mix)
10. It's A Funky Thing Pt. 1 (Special Feature!)
11. BBoy Breakdown (You Got The Job Mix)
