DJ Gravy x DJ Teddy King, Back In Time (via Boundless NY): Large Up’s hustler-in-chief DJ Gravy combined forces with DJ Teddy King of New York City streetwear shop Boundless NY (Check our webisode on their skate team) for this throwback mix that lived up to its title, combining classic hiphop remixes of ’90s dancehall hits from deejays like Cutty Ranks (“Living Condition”), Capleton (“Wings Of The Morning,”), Super Cat (“Ghetto Red Hot”) and more, with Rice & Peas microphone don dada Micro Don playing host in traditional “live” mixtape style. Being the veteran selectors and aficionados that they are, Gravy and Teddy cut up strictly vinyl for the recording of this mix, while Herbert Spliffington and James Farsetta‘s original 90′s 12″-style illustration was easily some of the wickedest art for a mixtape I can remember.
