Unkut.com presents: Forgotten Remixes

forgotten remixes

When it comes to that grimy, dusty, gritty mid nineties New York rap, there’s no doubt that Unkut.com champion it more than most sites out there, so if thats your thing, you’ll likely be interested in this compilation of forgotten remixes that Robbie Ettelson has put together. Sure, most of it sounds like its been recorded from well-played cassettes dug out of a shoe box that had been stored in an attic somewhere for a decade or so, but surely thats part of the charm? This collection of brooding bass heavy tracks harks back to the days when a mixtape was a mixtape, when skipping tracks wasn’t an option available to those short of time, when walkmans clipped on to belts rather than slipped into pockets. My personal favourite on here is the Frankenstein remix of Method Man’s PLO Style, but the Madlib remix of Gangstarr’s Just To Get A Rep is up there too. Well worth checking.
