Woah. Feels like a long time since I’ve sat down to put together a post, but there have been several reasons for the hiatus. As I mentioned before I have felt a little lazy blogging-wise of late, but more importantly over the last week or so I’ve been channeling my creative juices into another little project: a Pete Rock breaks and beats mix put together by yours truly.
Using Logic 8 and a batch of mp3s (I’ve long abandoned my desperate attempts to cling onto hip hop purism) what you have here is a 32 minute mix of Pete Rock cuts from way back to the very present mixed in with the original samples from which Mt. Vernon’s finest found his inspiration. To add a little extra flava to the mix I’ve also dubbed the Chocolate Boy Wonder’s interview with Future Music magazine and laid it over some of the sample sections (yea, you know I’m nice). Although the quality of the audio throughout is a little variable, I’d like to think that there’s enough going on here to keep both die-hard fans and more casual listeners happy. Tracklist is as follows:
1. Pete Rock ft. Max B & Jim Jones – ‘We Roll’
2. Pete Rock – ‘Pete’s Jazz’
3. Pete Rock ft. Inspectah Deck & Kurupt – ‘Tru Master’
4. Pete Rock ft. Raekwon, Prodigy & Ghostface – ‘Tha Game’
5. Onyx – ‘Shout (Pete Rock Remix)’
6. Pete Rock – ‘Placebo’
7. Nas – ‘The World Is Yours’
8. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – ‘In The House’
9. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – ‘Mecca & The Soul Brother’
10. YGz – ‘Ghetto Celeb’
11. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – ‘Can’t Front On Me’
12. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – ‘What’s Next On The Menu’
A lot of these samples have been covered previously here on FDB, but for the moment I’m gonna keep them close to my chest. No prizes if you can get them all, but you will be safe in the knowledge that you’ll receive your fair share of internet props. All of the tracks are individually indexed so you can jump from one track to another with complete ease, and I’ve even included a snippet of the mix above so that you know what you’re getting before you download the whole lot. Enjoy and distribute freely: don’t call it a comeback suckas.
Normal service to resume shortly.
