Stretch & Bobbito 1991 (w/Percee P & DMX)

This one is a request from Irish Craig. This was one from Stretch's short-lived blog konstant kontact. It's one of the earliest available Stretch Armstrong shows from 1991, featuring Percee P, and a then unknown DMX. As you can hear he claims 'the original author of spellbound.'

Masta Ace & Lord Digga - Maintain



This is an unreleased track from the 'Sittin' on Chrome' LP. It came out as a B-side on the test pressing of the Sittin' on Chrome 12". Pretty sure it's Digga production as well.

R.I.P. P-Original

This is a really sad way to start this New Year. I just learned that we lost one of Jersey's finest producers, P-Original. I'm still not sure exactly what happened. This is messing me up because he and I were really good friends for a while, but recently had a falling out over some stupid shit. I really wish I could turn back the clock and dead all that, because it's going to stay with me. He was a really good dude. He was one of the few people in my area that shared the passion I had for digging, producing, and music in general. He was really encouraging, and taught me a lot about making beats, and the industry.

I'm sure people will remember 'Keep it Live' and the stuff he did with El Da Sensai, but he has a ton of other stuff out there, and a lot of stuff that was never released. I encourage anyone who has enjoyed his work, or fans of this blog, to help with whatever you can to support his family through this tough time. There is a go-fund-me page here where you can donate.You can also check his YouTube page to hear some of his stuff you might not have caught. R.I.P. Pete, you will be missed.

Re: Happy New Year (CM Fam 1999)




Here's a 'tasty morsel' to wet your
appetite on the way to (or from) your
New Year's celebrations this year, a
nice little bonus included with your all
night open bar pass.


It's a flashback to the CM Fam-a-Lam Show with Bobbito & Lord Sear on December 31 1998, or technically 1 am January 1, 1999. This is a stupid fresh mix courtesy of DJ Cucumber Slice that is sure to get you in the party mood. He hits you with some Enjoy era old school followed by some late 80's/early 90's stuff.
