it has been YEARS since i heard this full high-quality bootleg recording of one of Max’s earliest live gigs, performed in 1997 at Paradiso, Amsterdam. it’s only 8 tracks long (roughly 42mins in length) but it showcases Max and his band’s knack for re-interpreting his own songs. there are some alterations made to some M standards here that i haven’t really heard anywhere else. not much is really known about this bootleg or how it even surfaced to begin with, alls i remember is chancing upon it i THINK from the Soulseek days. regardless, this should be a collector’s item for ANY avid Maxwellian fanatic.

“The DJ’s name is Premier and I’m the GURU”

That’s how Guru introduced Gang Starr on “Step In The Arena”. It’s as simple as that, but the combination of those 2 individuals created some explosive chemistry and a lot of classic Hip-Hop. Guru passed away in 2010, but DJ Premier is definitely keeping the Gang Starr legacy alive. With this mix, I wanted to pay tribute to both of them, not only to Guru and not only to DJ Premier, but to Gang Starr as a group. One of my favorite groups in Hip-Hop that is. I included all of my personal favorite Gang Starr tracks and left out all of the solo projects (as the title says, it’s strictly G.A.N.G. to the STARR son!)

I gotta admit, as an 80’s baby discovering Hip-Hop in the 90’s, the “Moment Of Truth” album is my s**t! So I can’t deny its heavy influence on the mix, but trust me, there’s a lot of other stuff in there!

Want classics? Follow me.
