Here’s another round of mashup biz from The Breakbeat Junkie & Plugg. Very creative and versatile track selection here. No doubt this required some serious lab time. Kurtis Blow's DC go-go inspired track, "Party Time" is a standout moment in this mix. To this day, KB is one of the only mainstream hip-hop artists to give props to go-go - a rare but important funk sub-genre. Growing up in DC, I have a decent collection of early 80s go-go records. I'm thinking a go-go mix on illJazz needs to happen soon.

Ok..back to the mixtape at hand. Other highlights: the Candy Dulfer and Public Enemy blend; the Magic Touch and Stetsasonic blend; The Meters (you can't go wrong!); Chunky Billy; Funkhouse Express, etc. Very solid production all around. Expect to hear more of Ant & Plugg on illjazz soon.
