DJ Trace - Philly Blunt (1994)

This legendary tape has graced many Philadelphia ravers' cassette tapes throughout the mid-nineties and for good reason: it's excellent! I have gotten tons of requests for this and my good buddy Sam had luckily been sitting on a copy. Recorded right around the time breakbeat and uk 'ardcore suddenly became jungle, the tracklist is a who's who of the time periods top producers and labels - Trace storms through essential cuts from LTJ Bukem, Omni Trio, Roni Size, Q Project, Goldie, Origin Unknown, DJ Rap, Deep Blue, DJ Crystl, among many others. It was an amazing time for the genre (the golden years, imo) and this set is a crucial display. Please note: the tape I ripped this from suffered some severe warping during the beginning of the first side - not much I can do but instead of altering the mix I left it in it's entirety, as you can easily skip past it if it bothers you.
