THE MARK DEVLIN VINTAGE MIXTAPE SERIES RELOADED – VOLUME THREE


The reloaded series of Mark Devlin mixtapes continues…

Blaze, volume three was a real personal favourite, with a healthy mix of tunes that were current in Spring ’99, and some more inspiring throwbacks. Where do you ever hear Go Go Lorenzo, Sweet Tee or Smiley Culture any more?!

A healthy showing on the freestyles here, too. Three of London’s finest, Ty, Cyrus The Virus and Breis united to bring some ‘Blaze’-themed heat. We had another instalment from Kid Fury, a permanent fixture on the early tapes, preceded by another hilarious ‘Antonio’ skit – again, specially cleaned up for radio. And Lee Ramsay represented for Nottingham. Some great ragga showings too, from Lady Saw and Tanya Stephens.

Volume two, ‘Yes Mista Devlin’ first appeared in January 1999, and was the first to feature the exclusive freestyles that were to become a staple ingredient of future volumes. We kicked off with four of ‘em – a debut showing from a very young Kid Fury, (who was rolling with me to clubs as my MC at the time,) an even younger Lethal, Simone from Nottingham’s Out Of Da Ville crew, (still going strong today under the moniker of C-Mone,) and Kelz of Bristol’s 3PM Crew, a frequent character on my Galaxy 101 Swing Shift show of the time.

Even more entertaining from a personal point of view was the appearance of the first of my comedy skits, this one being the notorious ‘Antonio’ sequence to introduce Kid Fury’s freestyle. Pure comedy, and actually sounding even more hilarious now it’s been cleaned up for radio!
