A Delicious Rmxxology

"While many of Delicious Vinyl's most famous tracks were created in the pre-sampling law era when the dominant hip-hop production style was based around familiar loops, Delicious RMXXOLOGY affords today's most talented artists the opportunity to create new music to accompany these classic raps."
-Peter Relic, from the liner notes for RMXXOLOGY

Following up on the success of the summer release of RMXXOLOGY, Delicious Vinyl is coming back with a knock down punch: the DELUXE 2 CD edition, which includes all of the original tracks PLUS four new unreleased remixes PLUS four classics from their catalog PLUS instrumental versions! Damn, that's a lot music!

They're drawing upon a strong back catalog of classic hip-hop artists including Young MC, Tone-Loc, The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, and others, remixed by a strong list of modern day mix masters including Don Rimini, Peaches, Hot Chip, Diplo, Aaron LaCrate, etc... Put old skool with new and you get some great tunes that, for some, will bring back memories, and for others will introduce them to some classic beats that don't feel like old folks' music.
