Mixcloud Cloudcast of the day - DJ Premier

Mixcloud's Cloudcasts are undoubtedly only as good as the DJs that produce them but their casts of the day are usually pretty consistant in quality. Today is the turn of DJ Premier, someone who has amassed a colossal amount of cool points.

Having produced pretty much all of Gang Starr's tracks as well as tracks for KRS-One, Mos Def, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas, M.O.P. and many others, DJ Premier is one of the most respected hip-hop DJs of the 90s.

This mix doesn't stray far from his trademark abrasive scratching, clashing loops and perfect beat-matching that remind of you New York like few others. I'm not sure about some of the tunes he chooses but then I've always been fussy about my hip-hop.

So head over to Mixcloud to download or stream it and keep up with Hip-Hop Nation for their spot on radio show.
