Now to the mix and Dj D has this to say about it:
‘The Forty Five Kings 2nd Anniversary stream will always be a special one for me; my first time back on decks after 40 days without music following the passing of my honourable dad, the man that introduced me to the humble 45.
Hence I wanted to take a moment to replicate part of what I had done on the live stream in mix form, a Forty Five Kings mix that had been on my ‘to do’ list for some time.
So here it is – a composition of some of my favorite 45s hitting a number of eras and genres from 1965 to now, many of which fall under that hip hop samples list, with a few DJ D blends along the way.
Big ups to the Forty Five Kings Collective for keepin it real, for keepin this format alive and well in 2021, and for bringing those with a serious passion for that 7” vinyl together.
