DJ Rip One - Turntable Expressions
There was a time when the use of 4 track record dominated the underground hip hop sound. Acts such as the Living Legends, DJ Babu, and DJ Vin Roc are a few that have pushed the boundaries of music production created through these devices.
A fine example of a 4 track mixed tape is DJ Rip One's "Turntable Expressions." This mix of breaks, rappin', cuttin' represents underground hip hop's four elements. There's a vibe in this mix unique to this era which can't be duplicated today (unless you came from that era). For those who miss the idea of the four elements having a symbiotic relationship, here is a mix you will enjoy.
