Dj Spinna Mix

We have been wanting to do a tribute to this very under rated Dj/Producer for a long time, and last night a bunch of us got together and made this. Dj Spinna is a Brooklyn born and raised Dj, producer, remixer and artist. He began his recording career in 1994 as a member of the the underground hip hop group Jigmastas. Throughout his career he has broken down musical barriers between the worlds of hip hop, deep house, soul and jazz working with everyone from Mos Def, Masta Ace, Pharoahe Monch and Eminem, to Eric Roberson, N'dea Davenport, and Mary Mary to Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers and Sergio Mendes. He has other notable side projects to his credit such as the Polyrhythm Addicts, the Free Radikalz and his alter ego Chopp Master Flopp which have also been released. His mixtapes are legendary with mixes like Strange Games and Funky Things remaining as one of my all time favorite mixes. You will have to excuse some of the beat mixing as we had 4 people in a studio being drunk and disorderly and I really struggled to hear :) and of course as usual recorded off 100% vinyl in one take
