You might have noticed that BBE has been releasing some real quality compilations lately. One I’ve been looking forward to is this new DJ Spinna presents: The Boogie Back” album that will be out November 24th. We uploaded the “Boogie Bundle Mix” to our Mixcloud and just like the “Strange Breaks & Mr. Thing Vol. II” you can give it a listen, before you decide to purchase it HERE. Here’s what BBE had to say about the compilation…

A cornerstone of Hip-Hop’s late 90′s indie-uprise, DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12″ singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era’s lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn’t have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn’t accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene. At the height of indie-kingpin Rawkus Records heyday, Spinna was in demand, also churning out timeless classics of the era from the likes of J-Live, Mr. Complex and The Polyrhythm Addicts (his all-too-brief collabo-group with Apani B., Shaabam Sadeeq and Complex). Spinna is back with his latest foray into the world of boogie.
