Show 889

Chris Read crafts the ultimate compendium of samples behind 1989 hip-hop, with countless originals from The Meters to Charlie Parker to Desmond Dekker all artfully blended to mixtape perfection. Plus standout old-school cuts by Stetsasonic and T La Rock, sanctified funk by Spirit of Love, flawless Outkast reworks by Sam Gellaitry and Ian Ewing, and sweet simmering grooves from Terry Reid, Childish Gambino and NxWorries.
