The Back to Brooklyn Mix

This is one of our classic mixes from 2015, archived by our old friends at Wax Poetics magazine:

“Wax Poetics contributing editor Andrew Mason aka DJ Monk-One spent [many years] spinning on Jay Smooth’s influential radio program, Underground Railroad. The WBAI show was founded in 1991 and focused on hip-hop and the jazz (and soul) cuts that were the building blocks for the sonic art. It was a New York staple and a must for any beatdigger that was trying to learn more about the roots of hip-hop. In fact, it was half the story about how the Wax Poetics founders met Monk-One in the late ’90s during his tenure with the groundbreaking show. Not long after, Wax Poetics was founded with the same mission of exploring the roots of hip-hop.”
