I'm dusting off an oldie but an undeniable goodie today, thanks to international mystery man DJ Vee going digital with his most excellent mix tape, H*E*R*D.
This mix was the cause of much beard strokery in the GOMWAB's former North London digs three-odd years ago when it was released on IndiBritKiwi Vee's excellent The Elephant label.
H*E*R*D ticks what I'm guessing are all the boxes for readers of this site.
There's head-nodding hip hop from the likes of Cut Chemist and Red Astaire; beat-laden soul from Julien Dyne and Soul Snaps; reggae-tinged business from R.A. The Rugged Man and I-Wayne vs. Overproof Soundsystem. Classic material, alright.
