1. AUDIO: DJ Monk-One — “Big Fun, Little Mix” (Free Download).

    Our friend DJ Monk-One recently dropped a damn fresh mix for Wax Poetics dedicated to Big Fun in the Big Town , the superb ’80s NYC hip-hop documentary recently released on DVD that’s got folks steady pressing rewind whilst blowin’ minds. Not only does the 30-minute mix kick ass – incorporating snippets of film dialog along with classic tracks – but little did we realize that Monk actually kinda scooped this whole Bob James’ “Take Me To the Mardi Gras” without-the-bells thing on the humble with his own bells-less flip (@3:50 for those who wanna cut to the chase). But don’t take our word for how good this ish is, hear for yourself…
