I'm so confused, why did I land on this page?

Edits & Megamixes

A megamix is a medley remix containing multiple songs in rapid succession. There may be only one verse or even just a brief chorus of each song used, sometimes in addition to samples of the same or other songs.

The DJ Producer Presents – 25 Years of Raw & Raunchy Beats for DJ’s

(Soundcloud link above for those who wish to stream this megamix)

 

This is one of the hottest edits to come around in a very long time. Something of which Albert Cabrera & Tony Moran of The Latin Rascals would undoubtedly give their blessing to. Other masters of the edit and megamixers that spring to mind are: Chep Nuñez, Carlos “After Dark” BerriosOmar Santana, Ben Liebrand, Cameron PaulThe Blade Runners, Double Dee & Steinski, Coldcut, Anthony “DJ Antron” Mabin, Norty Cotto, Todd Brown, Charlie Dee Diaz, Julian “Jumpin” Perez, Bad Boy Bill, Simon Harris, The Saxon Scoundrels, DJ Dren, Freddy Fresh, DJ Laz, Felix Sama, Albie Nieves, The Unity Mixers, TCM, Koen Groeneveld. The list could go on and on but I just felt like hitting the tip of the iceberg with those who’ve dealt with a pastiche of mainly 80’s electro, hip hop, freestyle that lead them into techno rave (which is now considered oldschool). 

I’ve personally been an avid lover of all things chopped an edited beyond recognition since I was thirteen years old that would give the normal listener a headache after and hour of solid beat programming. Having grown up in the running capitol of the world where the Oregon Ducks call home, I was never privy to radio mix shows like that from NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles or Miami. So I wound up bumping into random people courtesy of the breakdance movement which sent me all over my city (boombox in tow) playing random tapes that I had either dubbed from friends or been lucky enough to record directly from vinyl (which is what really pushed me into deejaying). I was fortunate to catch the ears of a college kid thanks to him seeing my friends and I breakin’ at the University of Oregon’s Erb Memorial Union where he invited us back to his residence to show us his record collection that he had brought with him from the East Coast. He played us a few different records on Tommy Boy that turned my world upside down and literally blew my mind. Needless to say I wanted them all so he told me to just leave a blank tape and that he would be kind enough to record them for me (teaching piracy to minors is quality material). Anyhow my ears were so open now for just about anything that the next time I came in audible contact with an 808 kick drum I just stopped like a deer in headlights and gravitated directly toward the origin of that sound.

Thanks to learning breakdancing at our local community recreation center and for my mother pushing me to get out of the house and explore life a bit more. I found myself becoming the social butterfly hanging with people who were anywhere from five to eight years my senior. Guess you could say why I’ve always been apprehensive about meeting people since I enjoy being around those who can submerse me in musical knowledge from there years of experience. Thankfully I wound up meeting a couple deejays in there early twenties at a breakdance competition who assisted me in my trainspotting that would take me on my pathway to ordering records directly from distributors sales sheets at 14 years of age and began my compulsion to collect entire discographies of numerous labels that spanned the course of the eighties.

Featured throughout this cut n’ paste journey which is the length of one-half a 90 minute cassette tape you will hear the vocal sample of Frankie Bones (culled from a RBMA lecture) laying down the law about all things rave and record sampling culture.
