DJ JS-1 & SPINBAD "Cold Cutz Remixes (1996)"

*This is one of the most classic mixtapes ever! It was recorded on a 4-trk cassette recorder in 1995/96 and released in late 1996 into '97. It did very well and was covered in several publications.

  1. How has no one given this love?! Hats off to you for this one, sir!

    Also, how did I miss this blog!? Gladly subscribed now - lookin forward to diggin' through the posts!!

    Peace from a die-hard hip-hop Stan!

  2. My cousin gave me a copy of this cassette about 15 years ago and it has been my favorite mix ever since. It's always been in steady rotation and I actually woke up today to the Strictly Business Remix which led me to find your website. Much love and respect to you and Spinbad for one of the best and most intricate albums ever put together. All the beat and vocal choices are dope as hell and the whole album flows perfectly together. I pretty sure I could pick out the scratches, beat changes, etc in my sleep at this point. So much more props to give but just want to mention that Mutley laugh on the Strictly Business remix, too sick.

  3. This is the greatest mixtape of all time, and I grew up in NYC and bought every tape from Capri, Doo Wop, Tony Touch, DJ Riz, Premo...THIS IS THE ONE. Thank g-d you posted it, cause i never got over my closest friend losing my copy. Long live JS-1, hope you make a volume III someday.

  4. Had this on tape way back! dope!
