16 tracks from the personal collections of Instagram crate diggers from around the globe, mixed by a world class DJ, @djragz. The result is a real mixtape - actually on tape. A tape about music discovery, DJing, hip-hop, and crate digging.

This project has been a journey - a tape well over a year in the making. Back in February 2016 we had an idea to do a crate digging version of the beat tape we had put out the previous December. The goal: gather music from the personal collections of crate diggers from the IG record community around the world that we had connected with over time and develop it into a mix done by a world class DJ. We reached out to 16 heavy diggers and asked for a track - there was no stipulation on style, just whatever you wanted to send from your collection. This resulted in a pretty eclectic mix of mostly rare gems, mixed in with a few personal favorites. After that, we shared the vision of the project (essentially Kon & Amir and DJ Muro meet Rob Swift) with the one DJ we knew would be perfect for the project, Virginia legend @djragz. That's all we said - Ragz was so tuned in and organized a 40 minute masterpiece of a mix. Creative blends, crazy cuts, juggles, on and on.

- Side A is the Original Mix: complete with cuts, juggles, acapellas, etc.
- Side B is an Instrumental Mix: all the tracks from Side A, but without the cuts and acapellas.
(note: both are clean and appropriate to play around your grandmother and grade school kids)

No project is complete without great art, which is where crate digger and artist @gregloretan stepped in. With a clear vibe of crate digging, the cover captures that "feel" with nods to Tribe (done right after Phife passed) and Keith Harring.

The end result is a project that sounds fresh in 2017, but reminds you of the classic era of the 90's. We truly hope y'all enjoy.
