.. waiting for J.Bo's long time coming return to the mixtape game. Being a brand new mix, this is not technically a J.Bo Tape... but after toying with the idea of recording it to a blank SA90 (of which I still have an unopened stash) then ripping it back to MP3, I realised this is my blog and I can do what I want!
This perfect party mix is a full on collaboration with Southern Hospitality AKA the most essential new music blog on the internet. Don't believe me? Just ask the New York Times to know that the world has sat up and is taking notice. Maximum respect to the big homies Superix, Rob Pursey and Davey Boy Smith for their tireless work pushing new music through their blog, their relentless genre-jumping mixtape releases and at their many events in London, around the UK and internationally.
To quote myself from the official release:
The long overdue collaboration between J.Bo and Southern Hospitality has been a true labour of love, just over a year in the making... and even now, the only way to agree to a final tracklisting was to start planning volume 2 (and 3!) immediately. A representation of one of our favourite sub-genres of all, these are the jiggy jams that brought fun and females back to the clubs. Featuring such luminaries of the genre as Fabo, Jigga, Kells, Luda and Diddy in a musical celebration of all that is trite and trivial, frivolous and flagrant. If the Fresh Prince is still looking for "a groove that soothes and moves romance" this 'Summertime' then here are 22 of em. Long live "Rap & Bullshit".
Finally, those of you in London (or willing to travel) get down to The Social on Little Portland Street W1 for the official launch party of this mix on Friday night, 23rd July. Southern Hospitality - Rap & Bullshit Special, free entry all night, details here and here.
But enough of that, here is the amazing mix itself...
