After Hours - The Sith Eleptikal Gems

Those two mixes originally released on mixtapes in 2001 deserves their names! Antwerp based crate diggers and producers After Hours did an incredible work on those ones. Ame and DVL gathered the finest funk, jazz, library and breaks, injected movie dialogs and invited Belgium’s #1 DJ, Grazzhoppa, to add some of his freshest cuts.
Those tapes were released on a limited serie back in the days and now they are available online for the first time, totally re-mastered.
During the last 10 years, the After Hours crew released something like 20 mixtapes and five records…
Some words published by Ame on his MySpace about those mixes:
“The Sith Eleptikal Gems are 2 mixtapes i did back in 2001 with my main hommer DVL. They basically feature all the most obscure original breaks & beats in my collection going from jazz to soul, soundtracks over weird psych rock & library music with a hint of world and so on. All corners covered i guess. In those days i was a fulltime record dealer (my company was called Barriosoundz) providing sample food and grooves to producers and disc jocks the world over. My sh*t blew up when we dropped the tapes, especially cause my dawg Phil Most The Soulman was so good to give me a feature on his legendary World Of Beats webspot. In those days ‘the’ place to be on the internet for anything ‘digging in the crates’ related. Since then there have been many mixes and compilations focusing on rare breaks from around the globe but i honestly feel we were at the forefront of that and broke a lot of records into the scene. Judge for yourself. It’s a nutty trip!”
Mixed by AME & DVL aka The Rotobotnus Twins for After Hours records in 2001.
