UBBvBeatlesMix

Like the scores of musical sounds and ideas it is meticulously crafted from, Ultimate Breaks and Beatles belongs to nobody yet everybody. Composed of crates upon crates of Beatles records, obscure covers of Beatles songs, the entire 25 volume Ultimate Breaks and Beats series and plenty more, it is a celebration of record collecting, DJing, hip hop music, and above all, the unparalleled resonance and influence of both the almighty Beatles and the almighty Ultimate Breaks and Beats series. In the tradition of its two titanic subjects, the mix defies genre; at once spanning, re-contextualizing, and transcending everything from classical to blues to jazz to rock to rap in just over and hour. Unlike your neighborhood hipster laptop DJ’s latest trendy “mash ups”, there was absolutely no software, sequencers, or techno used here–just a ton of vinyl, two turntables, a mixer, and an 8 track…

Start your week with a smile courtesy of  Scott Down & DJ Cutler’s fun Beatles vs Ultimate Breaks & Beats mix. If your the vinyl buying type, then don’t miss their UBB tribute 7″ on Lo Do Records.  Breakbeat Lenny would be grooving out in heaven!!
