DJ Matman - Classic Material Guest Mix: 1995 Volume 1 [Stream / Download]

Click HERE to download.

Earlier this year I was asked to dj a guest slot at London's Classic Material, a clubnight dedicated to chronicling the history of hip hop year by year.

I was asked to spin at the 1995 event, a great year for hip hop and of particular relevance to me as it was around this time I started my addiction to buying hip hop records, spending all my spare cash & lunch money on LPs & 12's!

I ended up playing over 2 hours at Classic Material, and these mixes represent how I put it down that night, and in roughly the same order. To the best of my knowledge I followed the rules of the event, playing tracks either released on 12" or on an LP released in 1995, along with any original songs they sampled - This means for example I get away with playing 'Daaam' by Tha Alkoholiks even though the single dropped in '94, as it was also on their 'Coast II Coast' LP in '95..

For anyone out there thinking where's all the Wu-tang / Pharcyde / Group Home releases etc. - relax! you'll find them & a lot more in Volume II, dropping soon…
