Jugganots, L the Head Toucha, Mike Zoot, J Live, Dutchmin, East Flatbush Project and Natural Resource among many are given an airing and sound fresh as ever. It’s a testament to Spinna’s talent that the selections from his own personal discography - Old World Disorder, Basement Khemists, and Jigmastas - are also some of the highlights of this compilation.
The only foible is the omission of anything outside New York bar Saukrates and Ugly Duckling. Let’s not forget that tuff indy 12’s were popping up all over the map during this time, some west coast classics such as Self Scientific’s ‘Return’ or even Dilated’s ‘Work the Angles’ could have substituted a few of the more palpable NY inclusions. But this is principally an NY mix by an NY legend so there’s no place for nitpicking. Essential listening - all hail DJ Spinna!
