“Use the up and down and crossfader…”
Continuing on the vibe of last week, here’s a hip house mix. Hip house was the late ’80s sweet spot where rap and house music converged.
Two of the tracks here sample from the Jacksons’ album Destiny: Get On The Dancefloor uses Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground), and Blame It On The Bassline uses Blame It On The Boogie.

“I’d like to see you in the sewers of my mind…”
Now this is more like it.
Sometimes a mix just comes together with a real groove, and feels effortless. I love this one. The transition from Losing My Mind to Blow The House Down was always a personal favorite.
Heavenly Bodies was recorded by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins. Jamie Dee’s Burnin’ Up is built around a sample from Magic’s Wand by Whodini, a 1982 hip hop track that was co-written and produced by Thomas Dolby.
