BLACKCLASSICAL / MONOHUB - 70 YEARS OF BLUE NOTE



















70 cuts in 70 minutes for the 70th anniversary of the mighty Blue Note label.
That was the original premise behind the latest mix from Blackclassical and Monohub and to quote the guys themselves :
"When we set out to do this comp, we wanted to do 70 tracks over 70 mins which looking back was a tad ambitious to say the least and am afraid we failed miserably on both budgets. 35 Tracks listed, 42 Used and some other little incidental bits… Plus it wouldn’t be a BC mix without a lil’bit of spoken word."
What IS so great about this mix is they've managed to avoid all the usual old hackneyed numbers that get rolled out for every fucking Blue Note mix under the sun plus they haven't succumbed to the segued beats formulae and blending of similar styles approach.
So get your sorry ass over to Blackclassical and download this motherfucker of a mix!

Finally finding the time to give this a proper run-out Greg. Wayne Shorters just kicked in and sounding sweet. My favourite Shorter lp by fucking miles. Hang on, the spokenart just rolled in. I've only heard 5 minutes so far.
Another FUCKING killer.

What a great mix - is this only available as one big file or also as separate tunes? This would be perfect. Anyway, thanks a lot for this share!
