This is a must have!
Explanation of the mix below.
In the mid 90's myself and Dj Spinbad did the "Cold Cutz Remixes (If I Ruled The Radio)" mixtape. We made that mixtape on broken 4-track-cassette recorders. We remixed tons of acapellas, and every song on the mixtape was an exclusive blend we did using turntables only. We re-scratched the song hooks, added sound fx, did some scratch interludes and really set the bar high for mixtape production. To date, that mixtape has reached tens of thousands of people and is considered one of the best mixtapes of all-time. This new mix was not supposed to be the specific part 2 to that mix, but it's done in a similar way and it is the "unofficial" part 2. There is ONLY acapella remixes on this new mix as well. I tried to use acapellas that we didn't use on the first one and also tried to squeeze in some rare ones too. There are some really great acapellas on here like The Symphony (Masta Ace verse), Peter Piper by Run Dmc, Full Clip by Gangstarr, Set It Off by Big Daddy Kane, Eric B is President by Eric B & Rakim, Mama Said Knock You Out by LL Cool J, The Bitch in Yoo by Common, n more... A mix like this is completely opposite of many lazy djays' mixes that let songs play all the way and then talk or play sound fx in between every track. This involves soo much more, and is soo much more fun to make. I used hundreds of different beats and acapellas.
Today most music has become free online and the mixtape game is not what it once was. It's easy to find thousands of mixtapes for free download, i know i posted all of mine for free download at: (www.DJJS1.BLOGSPOT.com)
Sooo, with everything being free, in order to make it worthwhile for someone to possibly purchase a CD, I have continued to make mixes that i noticeable put lots of work into. All i really ask is that people spread the word and get these mixes out there. Please re-post this, email it to your friends, re-tweet this, etc... (There is the buttons to re-post on facebook and twiiter below this post) Lets keep the pressure on all those horrible djays out there and try to keep some respect, honor, dignity and skills to the mixtape legacy.
Special Thanks to my friends and co-djays who gave me a few treats for this mix cd.... Dj Premier, JBX & Big City Records, Dj Eclipse & Fatbeats, Dj Riz,
Mix Greens, Dj Young C, and Dj Ody Roc... they all contributed acapellas to this mix....

This is such a huge accomplishment not just for Jay but for HIP HOP. I remember where HIP HOP came from and how it started. I grew up with it To take it to this level in 30 years is incredible. Imagine what it could be in 60 years if we respect it.

Shouts to my mentor Jazzy Jay and my man Greg Nice.....CLASSIC!!!!
Shouts to the TAPEMASTA for this classic joint. Been playing this one for a while. Dont think I ever posted it so here it goes!
Another great mix from JS 1 & DJ SKIZZ. Courtesy of PIPO. Check the description below.
Dj Skizz of The Halftime Radio Show, and myself, DJ JS-1, got together to do another classic mix... (if you didnt already download "REPROGRAM" our first mixtape, check the older posts n download it!) So this time around we decided to do a full mix using ONLY remixes. Many of these remixes are rare, uncommon, or not played out. We tried to narrow it down to remixes we personally liked because there is soo many. Most of these tracks are from the 90's era. We did miss a few, but there's always vol 2. Sooo, while many other djays are lazy with wack music knowledge, i do everything i can to keep bringing you good music, classic tracks, some rare hiphop, and never jumping ship to play cornball commercial nonsense. I hope you enjoy and appreciate our mixes... please repost, re-blast, retweet, and tell a friend... thank you. DJ JS-1... Rock Steady Crew...

Shouts & MUCH RSPECT to B Boy legend Jorge "PopMaster Fabel" Pabon. This is a MUST see documentary.
ROCK DANCE HISTORY: The Untold Story of Up-Rockin' Vol. One features Bronx Rock dance legends: Enoch, Papo and Marine Boy. Clips from this documentary, filmed, edited, directed and produced by Jorge "PopMaster Fabel" Pabon have just been released today, Sept. 2nd, 2010 on his profile page at youtube.com/user/POPMASTERFABEL.
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-L_zDAz5vU
Part 1.5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhq_prBqtVY
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKFa4RGao_c
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWLkhTAI-w0
Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CovFBMzYarQ
Part 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pCsWdQJoaY
Part 6: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6OnnvOkEE8
This series of interviews reveals amazing dance footage as well as pieces to the puzzle of the history of one of the major foundational dance forms associated with Hip Hop culture, known as Rockin', and later referred to as Up-Rockin'. Part of Fabel's inspiration for undertaking this series was due in part to controversy regarding the history of this dance form.
This work in progress is a response to certain Brooklyn based dancers adamantly rejecting the possibility of early Rock dance originating out of the Bronx and Manhattan. Within the past 15 years, claims have been made that the Rock dance and its "original" style and "correct" form began in Brooklyn. After years of debating and valid points falling on deaf ears, Fabel took it upon himself to seek out some of the Rock dance legends from the Bronx and Manhattan. He was determined to have their voices heard and their rightful place in Rock dance history established. The subjects in this documentary will challenge the history of Rock dance as most people know it and will finally set the record straight regarding their part in the history and development of this amazing dance form!
Note from Fabel: "This documentary was also inspired by my continuous efforts in presenting a different perspective of Rock dance history. One example being this note I posted on January 8, 2010: To all students of the Rock & B-boy dance, keep an open mind & learn the whole truth! http://www.facebook.com/notes.php?id=824685376¬es_tab=app_2347471856#!/note.php?note_id=260116816808
I'd like to thank my good friend Franc "Perico" Reyes (former Rock dancer, Hustle legend and creator of the films: Empire, Illegal Tender and The Ministers) for putting me in contact with Marine Boy who then connected me with Papo who, in turn, introduced me to Enoch. It was all a chain reaction! I plan to screen ROCK DANCE HISTORY: The Untold Story of Up-Rockin' in it's entirety at a soon to be announced venue and date. It will feature more interviews of Rock dancers from the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. The event will include a panel discussion with Rock dance pioneers and legends plus a Rockin' contest which these legends will judge. My sincerest gratitude goes out to all who have helped in this effort thus far including: Elias "Weebles" Reyes, Lil' Lep (New York City Breakers), Jerry Maze (TATS CRU), Joey Juice (Ching A Ling Nomads MC), B-Boy Zip (Floor Master Tops), Sam Lugo, Papo Luv (Brooklyn's Vicious Dancers), Arnaldo "Tito" Cepeda aka Fly T (Wicked Wizzards) and everyone else who consulted and contributed. I also extend a special thank you to The Point CDC (Community/Arts Center) in the Bronx for all their support."
