Hip HopThe Overtime Man
Ambassadors – The Closer Sound and DJ Cable

Packed full on 90’s Hip Hop heat, The Overtime Man has come up with the awesome concept of recreating some of the those old compilation tapes/mixtapes you would make for your friends back in the day.

There isn’t any turntable trickery here, just a great selection of classic tunes, ranging from The Pharcyde and Ahmad, to the leftfield sounds of Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon. Extra kudos goes to The Overtime Man for including The Beatnuts’ “Hellraiser” too. Respect!

Ambasadors – Bradshaw and Four walls of sound

Dj Beyza’s back with a new mix and its refreshingly classic tech house, but funky as you like.. diggin it!
