DJ Matman x Who Sampled X Wax Poetics – Dr Dre ‘The Chronic’ 25th Anniversary Mix

I just dropped another collaborative mix with media giants WhoSampled & Wax Poetics – Dr Dre ‘The Chronic’ 25th Anniversary Mix, featuring original samples, b-side cuts, remixes, unreleased versions, album joints and interview footage! Check it out here:

Official blurb:

Today marks the 25th Anniversary of Dr. Dre‘s seminal debut solo album ‘The Chronic’. Not many albums can rightfully lay claim to the title of ‘landmark recording’, but ‘The Chronic’ is certainly one of them, an LP that arguably sparked an entire movement in Hip Hop and which certainly held great influence over the genre’s direction for decades to come. As Dre’s first major release after his departure from N.W.A, it was a record with a lot to prove, and it delivered innovation in spades. It not only solidified Dre’s reputation as an all-rounder – an accomplished rapper and producer – but also marked the start of a new period in his career together with a new crew of collaborators, among them a young Snoop DoggDaz Dillinger and Kurupt. Most importantly however the album is largely credited with kick-starting the G-Funk movement, a sonic template which married slick gliding synths, rhythm guitar and more with P-Funk and related samples to create a sound smoother and more polished than most Hip Hop production prior. The presence of similar themes and methods in some of Dre’s work on late N.W.A material and Cold 187um‘s work with Above the Law recorded during the same time period should now however be overlooked.
For our latest mixtape, former DMC and ITF champion DJ Matman marries album cuts, alt versions and remixes with original sample material and more.
