Here's a few interesting finds from around the web that you might not have seen, enjoy.

Old School & Golden Era Mixes

A big shout to Scenes for finding this little gem.  First up iled hour long mix of tunes from 1988 and '89 mixed by BrettJayB.  Nicely balanced, it covers everything from Uptown to Steady B and 3 x Dope to N.W.A.!  All styles are covered and there are some forgotten gems hidden amongst the classics.

The next edition in the series covers 1990 to '92.  Again, the representation of all styles of hip hop makes for a really nice mix.  If you like these, then check his SoundCloud page and look for parts 1 and 2 which cover the earlier years of electro and hip hop.

Reminiscing over T.R.O.Y.
