DJ Mitsu The Beats - Solid Black
In conjunction with Snow Dog Projects and Black Jazz Records, Jazzy Sport crew member DJ Mitsu The Beats has composed a seamless mix of tracks selected from the Black Jazz catalogue. Well known for his hip hop mixes, Mitsu takes a two-decade-veteran DJ’s perspective here, more often than not segueing complete tracks, as opposed to doubling and cutting breaks, for a 70-minute-plus trip through vintage 1970s spiritual jazz that a listener can easily lose themself in. Of course beats and breaks and funk abound here, but the emphasis of this mix lands on the Black Jazz label’s overall vibe, while highlighting the funkier edge to the catalogue, which has collectors chasing original vinyl copies to this day!!!
