'2001', THE MD MIXTAPE VOLUME 6. DOWNLOAD AND ABSORB


MARK DEVLIN: 2001. THE MIXTAPE, VOLUME 6

It's easy to forget, but ten years ago, anticipation of the upcoming millennium was everywhere. It all felt so BIG! The year 2000! There was a lot of paranoia, too. Remember 'The Millennium Bug' and the fear that global computers would crash and planes would start falling out of the sky?

The spirit of it all was captured on '2001', my mixtape that appeared at the very start of 2000, (the title partly inspired by Dr. Dre's '2001: The Chronic' album that had just appeared, and partly because I used to consider myself a year ahead of my time!) I'm still quite proud of the tape's doom-laden introductory sequence I put together, and the preliminary Nas track ties in very neatly with the theme.

Freestyles come from Oxford's Kid Fury and Brooklyn's Mr. Demo, recorded live in New York. Side two features some slamming ragga riddim juggling, and some nostalgic hip hop throwbacks. Main Source! Special Ed! Channel Live!

Download and enjoy.
