  1. […] Band era with echoes of the Six Million Dollar Man theme (you can hear the original in an earlier mix). The mix kicks off with two French tracks and also features a couple of things from the first Nu […]

  2. […] The second mix is another one from the vaults, made years ago on cassette. It kicks off with Thievery Corporation, the pair behind DC’s Eighteenth Street Lounge (a must on any trip to Washington) and the label of the same name. They also provide the remix to DJ Cam’s Success. There’s also a bunch of Japanese stuff from the magnificent Major Force box set, tracks from one of LTJ Bukem’s Earth collections, and Cut Chemist’s brilliant remix of DJ Shadow (a collaboration I saw them later recreate live). After Busta Rhymes’ tribute to Knightrider, Jazzy Jeff cuts up T Plays It Cool, Donald Byrd, Bob James, Grover Washington, Jr and Bobbi Humphrey. Next a Takagi Kan remix provides the best rework of Light My Fire I’ve heard, and Soon E MC samples Diana Ross’s Brown Baby. The mix ends with Ultimate Dilemma’s Ill Dependents, who basically just add a drum track to Geoff Love’s 3 Days of The Condor (heard in this mix). […]

  3. […] The first mix below epitomizes the sound of Back On The Streets and could have been called a tribute to the wah wah. Inevitably heavy on blaxploitation records, the mix starts with the Bar-Kays at Wattstax (for anyone who didn’t know where Tim Simenon got the sample for Beat Dis or Chuck D for Caught, Can I get a Witness?), followed by the late father of Go-Go Chuck Brown’s Soul Searchers and a few classic soundtracks and funk instrumentals. It wouldn’t be a Back On The Streets mix if it didn’t include a couple of dodgy charity shop tracks; so I also put in Funky Fever, which showed up on the ubiquitous Sound Gallery compilation of the time, and Jack Parnell’s take on Enter The Dragon (Dennis Coffey’s version appeared in an earlier mix). […]

  4. […] while some of the more down-tempo tracks made it into mixes I’ve posted before (here and here). But there’s loads of amazing incidental music on many of these LPs that never gets played […]
