Jazzy Beets w/ Undercover

I've always loved the jazzy hip-hop sound, with Blue Note (among others) samples forming the basis of a lot of 90's hip hop. Here is a little set of fresh music dropped recently full of jazz samples, breaks and loopy beats. We have a few on here from the J. Period mix of Wake Up, some of that lush sounding interpretation of Pete Rocks classic 'They Reminisce Over You' from the album I just posted below. Booker T James get in the studio again, not just any studio - the Daptone one! DJ 2-Tone Jones brings us the Wu meets Blue Note stuff. Dj Vadim, Blu and Slum Village start to get nice and loopy before we pick it up with some heavy hip hop vocals and remixes from Aloe Blacc, Pharoahe Monch, Styles P, Dela and Ghostpoet. DJ Jazzy Jeff gives us a Roller Boogie remix of Mayer, Romanowski, The Root Source and Mo Horizons give up some uptempo samba and funk, before we jazz it out again. SwinG!
