YUM YUM Top Tunes November

Top Tunes are coming a bit late this month – we had our 7th anniversary this month and we kept busy doing these 8 bday mixtapes for you as well as the new YUM YUM Mixtape “The Dude”. Plus we had some issues with our servers (were under attack) and took us some time to figure that out, but its all good now, you just need to empty your browsers cache or wait for it to be gone in a few. So, hope you dont mind us being late. but here you go with this months Top Tunes Selection. Enjoy

Heavy D tribute – Nuttin but love Cookin Soul remix by Cookin Soul

Even though i have witnessed all of Heavys releases throughout the years, i only really dug this one tune right here. His duet(?) with Super Cat from the 91 Don Dada Album. His Jamaican flow was impeccable. One of the many jamaicans in the then young Ny hiphop scene (Special Ed, Krs One, Latifah and almost everybody else..). Dem no worry we is still to this day a great reggae tune that brings back a lot of nice memories.

Super Cat got me into Reggae – here is the promised 2nd part to some of his music and some songs from his early 90ies album “Don Dada”, which i caught a glimpse of while i was in NY in 93/94. Flex was on the radio, Souls of Mischief proclaimed the year to be timeless, Black Moon had everyone open and Wu-Tang was the word of the year. I mean Nas “Illmatic” came out early/mid 94 and Queen Latifahs “U.N.I.T.Y” was one of the best promoted albums and tracks i had ever seen. The best party was Phunky Buddha at Nells a proper hipster crowd (hipsters in the early 90ies was something completely different), Jackie 60 had some legendary Acid Jazz nights, the Tunnel was a rowdy hiphop crowd on Wednesdays and the Lions Den had some amazing Reggae afternoons – and my reggae mixtapes were bought at 555Soul. Actually i was a massive fan of the Cat but as soon as his hiphop mixes caught on – man, i was hooked. Have fun kids.

Here are the hiphop mixes that i am playing every now and then up to this day. but i think they were in 92 – not really sure and too lazy to look up the record sleeves. Ps recognize the sample on Dolly my Baby? Herbie Hancocks “Watermelon Man”. Chocolate breadcrumbs on the way down memory lane.
