I have recently updated to the new soundcloud (which isnt very good mind you) but the one good thing is I now at this stage have unlimited storage, that means I have now done a massive update of the page and put a huge amount of long deleted mixes, remixes and edits up for your listening pleasure!!!!!

I had decided a few nights back that I was going to do a live off of vinyl mix and I started to get some records together to record another jazz mix as I haven't done one for a while, I quickly decided that one of the mixes I had been really wanting to do was a Prestige Mix, but I had 2 dilemmas, 1. I knew there was already an amazing Prestige mix by Fatback from the SoulStrut Forums and 2. I didn't know how I was going to get the funkier prestige stuff I loved into the same mix as the straight Prestige stuff I also loved? The answer was kind of simple, as Fatback had covered the straight ahead stuff so well, I would stick to the funky organ stompers and dance floor monsters side of the prestige releases. So I gathered a bunch of records and pressed record and this is the result, scratches/scuffs and pops and crackles included! For those that don't know much about Prestige Records, this should be a great intro into their catalog, it includes cuts from jazz greats like Charles Earland, Sonny Phillips, Sonny Stitt, Patrice Rushen, Boogaloo Joe Jones, Melvin Sparks and Brother Jug Ammons, and the line up of some of the players on these recordings is like a who's who of jazz, think Bernard Purdie, Idris Muhammad and Candido just to name a few! bonus beats
