This week’s episode of Mixtape Monday is ALL TRIBUTES EVERYTHING! With selectors from across the globe paying their respects to two massive talents — we are featuring sets that honor the life and legacies of The Notorious B.I.G. on the 20th anniversary of his untimely death, which shook the world on March 9, 1997, and Clyde Stubblefield, the ultra-funky drummer who gave hip-hop some of the illest breakbeats as a member of James Brown‘s band.
Brownswood Recordings chief Gilles Peterson is responsible for that mix, while DJ Jazzy Jeff puts in work for BOILER ROOM, serving as the chief architect for the company’s Philly debut. The Soul Preacher and Paul De Loecker lift their respective glasses to toast to the amazing ladies around the world in celebration of International Women’s Day. Last, but certainly not least, ’80s hip-hop classics and Brazilian funk-and-jazz also make an appearance in this week’s roundup, just for good measure.
