Just like his DITC comrades, Lord Finesse's digging credentials can't be questioned. And if you need a refresher, this mix tape is just the ticket.
Finesse headed out to Japan last month to show off the results of his lifelong search for beats and pieces, recording one of his DJ sets to share with the rest of us.
Packed full of rare grooves, edits, funky nuggets (hmm...) and some hip hoppy interludes, Live From Tokyo Pt. 1 shows and proves Finesse's ear is still sharp.
And while he might be better known as an MC and producer, it turns out he's no slouch on the turntables either.
You can stream Live From Tokyo Pt. 1 below, or download it here. Watch out for the second hour of Finesse's set when it drops next week.
