The Velvet Knuckles
Mix Show: Remix Chronicles Vol. 1
Direct Drive Productions
VK = DJ Z Trip + X96
DJ Velvet and DJ Knuckles mash together a myriad of source artist samples to bring you a 23-track glimpse into what these masterminds are playing at. They take any sound from anywhere from 50 Cent, Biggy and J5 to Zepplin, CCR and Will Farrell voice clips in Old School and cram them together in any number of combinations to make fresh groove tunes, some of which appear on this record. Feel free to throw this in and leave to fuel your dance party, or check out their concerts where they remix live and probably sound just as dope but completely different than anything on this disc.
