Dj Siens - Hip-Hop 3

Another jewel by Siens. 1996 is the year.

Dj Siens - Tape 4

Dj LBR - Down with the King V.1

This time we present you LBR's first tape. A true classic. Great intro, some blends, medleys, a KRS One megamix and last but not least features from Zhane, Rahzel AND The Jungle Brothers. Just that!
1996 is the year.

Dj LBR - Down with the King V.2

LBR has featured on this blog with the Strickly Hip-Hop tape, this time it's more R&B flava with his tape 2. He started his career as a radio host and member of Double H dj Crew. He made some realy fat mixtapes. They stand out because of the amounts of blends and innovative mixes he did on his tapes which at the time in France was not so common. His tapes are all on point, with lots of blends, interludes, scratches ...He later became known for his work with AV8, being a superstar club dj, producer and so on. And he's a fan of Tapediggers. Aka the Man with the Bass.
His early tapes are all little jewels so make sure you cop this one.

Dj Kost - 100% R&B V.1

Another piece of Mixtape History right there. The 1st of the Dj Kost series. I used to buy his mixtapes in my hometown of Brussels but when this series reached Brussels it was already number 15, and so I never tought I would be able to listen to this tape but thanks to Chris it's right there. Massive shout out to him for al his hard work and money he put into making lots of mixtapes available, and in good quality. In fact, most of the  MP3 versions of French mixtapes that you'll listen to are there thanks to him so respect for his work and dedication over the years.

Dj Kost - 100% R&B V.2

Props to my man Azzedinne for making this tape available to the public.

Dj Kost - 100% R&B V.3

3rd tape by Kost. A classic in the French mixtape scene like almost all his tapes.

Dj Abdel - The Mixtape V.3

Third installement in Abdel's R&B series, featuring (at that time) exclusive songs by Fabe & Koma.

Dj Lord Chamy - Boomin'n'Jeep

This one is dedicated to all our haters out there. One Love.

Funkmaster Flex & Biz Markie - Classic Cuts (Live At Tavern On The Green)

Two legends for the price of one. You know this can't go wrong. I may have been born in the wrong place and wrong time but these mixes take me back..way back. You should have downloaded it already!

Dj Selekta - Selektape R&B Swing Vol.1

First tape in the series. Great artwork. Massive respect to Na2k for ripping this tape and making it available.

Dj Selekta - Selektape R&B Swing Vol.2

Like I've said before sometimes you just have to look at a tape cover to know if its fat or wack. This cover shows me some real inspiration and creativity and the mix is just like that. Other tapes of this dj featured on this blog, now get tape 2.

Dj Red Alert - We Can Do This

It's the Kool DJ Red Alert. Radio legend. Hip-Hop mastermind.
Wikipedia teaches us that : " Red Alert has been noted for breaking in such acts and artists as A Tribe Called Quest, Queen Latifah, and Black Sheep.[3] Red played a vital role in The Bridge Wars beginning in 1986. His legend grew immensely after being the first deejay to break the record South Bronx by Boogie Down Productions on his KISS-FM weekend radio show and club gigs in support of the Bronx-based hip hop group versus MC Shan, Marley Marl, and the Juice Crew. He holds the all-time record for the most guest appearances amongst all hip hop artists and personalities in the history of music video. "

Dj Authentik - Feat. La Umma Concept V.1

Nice mixtape. Features some indie songs, french freestyles and a mini capone & noreage mix.

Dj Keef - Rap Francais V.1

Original Bombattak - Atlantide

Original Bombattack was a French mixtape series. This is the Atlantide tape. Inspiring artwork I must say.

Tony Touch - Tape 1

A piece of history righ there. Tony Toca's first tape.

Tony Touch - Hip Hop _25 (Arrive To Get Live)

Toca with one of his classic tapes. Looking at the tracklist we can say that 93 was a good year for hip-hop.

Dj Nels - RnB & Rap Bombtape 2

One side R&B, the other side Hip-Hop, this coupled with some French freestyles, this is what this tape has to offer.

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message

Hip-Hop and You Don't stop. Single by Hip-Hop legend Grandmaster Flash and his crew the Furious Five.
"Broken glass everywhere
People pissin' on the stairs, you know they just don't care
I can't take the smell, can't take the noise
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley with the baseball bat
I tried to get away but I couldn't get far".

It looks like he's describing my hood. Things haven't change much in 30 years.. Expect maybe for the clothes street kids are wearing, and the funny haircuts.But then again it's the 80's.

Dj Nicolson - Au Centre du Freestyle 1

French freestyle tape from 98.
