Finally got round to giving High-Rise regular TOM YUM‘s latest mix a going over, and only three weeks after it dropped (sorry mate!). Unsurprisingly, it’s really really good. A lot more interesting than the usual ‘throw some Sugar Hill Gang and Grandmaster Flash against a wall and see what sticks’ mixes you might be used to. This is partly due to the definition of old school hip hop being stretched a little bit, with tracks from DJ Mitsu the Beats and Wale Oyejide among others.

This mix is a taster of what you can expect from TOM YUM as he holds down the main room with Nomark at Rewind, a hip hop party out of Brighton.
