blackbeard (uptown safari, uk)
radio mix

who is blackbeard? what you should really be asking is who are blackbeard? well, they are a dj, a producer and few musicians who like to make already good songs even better. instead of simply remixing/re-editing a cut these guys cut & paste and add live instruments to the mix making it a true re-work. if you buy records then you'll have noticed the blackbeard name popping up 12"s with reworks of nas, common & freeway. keep your eyes and ears open for these guys because we'll be seeing a lot more of these guys in the months to come. i've been loving this mix since i heard it on compost.raduo show #14 and even more so after it dropped into my mailbox!
