Episode 318 comes to us from Double O, Co-Boss of Rupture London with the mighty DJ Mantra!! Rupture London is one of my favorite labels and I highly encourage all of you pick up the tunes on this label to add to your respective repertoires! I am not just a fan of Double's O's label, I am a big fan of his Music, with a few of my favorites from him being, Blackula, Brothers Darkness, and Cutlass Style!
Double O's mix starts out melodic and soulful, then switches up into some sharp and deadly amen bizness. The mix then sways back and forth between soulful chopped up break infused tunes, amens, and rollers, creating an eclectic masterpiece for your ears to feast upon!
Sorry trainspotting crew, I won't be supplying a track list for this one, there are some exclusive gems in the mix that cannot be revealed to all of you out there just yet.
