(2xCD) Mievin Mixtapes MMMt01, 2006-12-18

Tracklisting :
No info

Press Release :
Tru Thoughts founder Robert Luis delivers an ecclectic mix of his favorite reggae, dub and ska mixed with broken beat, hip hop and drum & bass from the past few decades.
This limited edition item is a double CD album; disc one is a more laid-back, Sunday afternoon affair, while disc two offers a more uptempo selection.

Reviews :
"New limited edition (only 400 copies worldwide) double mix CD from TRU THOUGHTS label boss ROB LUIS. Disc one is a chillout mix full of rare reggae and downtempo. Disc two features a tougher fusion of hip-hop, reggae, disco, and dancehall. Very cool" (GrooveDis)

"Tru Thoughts founder and A&R Robert Luis digs into his record collection to offer a Double CD Mixtape. The theme for the mix is Reggae & Dub. The first CD is a downtempo and listening selection with tracks influenced and played on the Unfold Radio Show. The second CD is a club orientated mix covering hip hop, broken beat, funk and drum and bass….all with a Jamaican influence. Strictly Limited Edition with 400 copies available worldwide, and a very decent price - remember this is a double CD. The first CD is correctly entitled Head Nod, and contains reggae, dub, breakbeat and soul tracks with a Jamaican feel - a real cross section of styles that goes very well with red eyes and late night sessions. The second disc is a more sprightly affair and I think an ideal getting-ready-to-go-out CD, puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step! An excellent set from the mind behind one of the UKs best indie labels and a damn fine DJ to boot. Wicked." (Fat City)

"Tru Thoughts honcho Robert Luiz comes with a belt busting double disc mix (2 1/2 hours total!). Not bound to his own catalog, Luiz guides us through his favorite beats from his personal record stash and gives us a glimpse of the... expand review label's direct influences. The over-arching theme here is music "influenced by Jamaica." The first disc is labeled "downtempo" and features 25 tracks of funk, soul, jazz, hip-hop, and beats. The second disc is labeled "uptempo" and features 21 tracks of breaks, hip-hop, drum and bass, and broken beat. With so much top shelf material, this will satisfy both the record nerd and the casual weekend listener. A top seller at our Manhattan store. - the mgmnt" (Turntable Lab)

I heard two tracks being played on a local show and would like to get the disk here in the US. No one seems to know about it.
This is a cry for help- how/where do I get this album.

An instant classic, this fantastic reggae-rocksteady album strives directly for legendary status.
