A very, very happy holiday weekend to all of you from all of us at Mixtape Monday. We’re not taking the day off, however. In fact, we upping the ante with the premiere of LargeUp‘s Double Barrel mix, a brilliant set of classic reggae tracks and the timeless hip-hop songs that have sampled them. Double Barrel was crafted by DJ Gravy and DJ Corey Chase and has been a long, long time coming from our LargeUp family, and what better time to finally hear it than on a day when we’ve all got a little extra leisure time?
Beyond the reggae, we have an especially excellent batch of sounds for you, with a clutch of rare Mexican 45rpm funk, futuristic brilliance from J Rocc and Sango and a sufficiently hard mix dedicated to the memory of Chinx (RIP). So get ready for some day-off excellence to hit your stereo system. The Memorial Day edition of Mixtape Monday begins right here and now.
