Hopefully, like us, you been loving these special servings from Southern Hospitality , who for their long-running Twelve 12s series have gotten various DJs to select a dozen of their vinyl-only favorite tracks from artists such as the Beatnuts , Slick Rick and Beastie Boys and make a fresh live mix. Just in time for Record Store Day (April 20), the series reaches number 50 with none other than De La Soul .
From Mr. Rob Pursey, the man who started it all: For our 50th edition of the Twelve 12″s series we had to celebrate one of the groups that so many of our contributors share a love for and can genuinely claim to be one of the greatest groups in rap history – De La Soul! Ever since arriving with the landmark 3 Feet High And Rising , De La just evolved with each album in a way that few groups from their era were able to, bringing us so many essential and cherished moments in rap history. Therefore, it’s difficult enough to even have a favourite De La Soul album, such is the richness and quality of each release, let alone choose only 12 tracks for this mix! So, here is just a personal selection of some favourite remixes, 12″ only cuts, promos and alternative versions from the true masters of the genre. Enjoy!
