Guru Tribute Mix – DJ Superix

The UK’s DJ Superix pays tribute to the legendary Guru as part of SouthernHospitality.Co.UK’s “Twelve 12″‘s” mix series – download here.

A few words from Superix:

There’s not much we can say that hasn’t already been said on blogs all over the world, but Guru and Gangstarr for us were always up there with the greatest rap groups ever alongside Public Enemy, De La Soul, Run DMC, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest etc.  Evidence of this is myself, Rob and most of the DJs, collectors and fans we know, all have so many Gangstarr records in their collections, they were just so damn prolific, dropping classic after classic must-have wax with amazing cover art and some of the best B-sides in hip-hop history. So in order to do our special Twelve 12’s tribute mix it’s been really tricky to refine it to just 12, so many hits, so much good music, it’s almost impossible. I could have easily gone to 25+ records, but I’ve managed to get 12 of my personal favourites on this mix and also picked records that show Guru and Gangstarr’s versatility as artists throughout their careers.
