Welcome to round two of this week's featured playlists. This post is an absolute cracker, even if we do say so ourselves. Check this quartet out...
Rolling Stone calls DJ Premier arguably “hip-hop’s greatest producer of all-time.” Pete Rock was third About.com's “Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers” list. Between them, they have worked with Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Jay-Z, Heavy D and Kanye West. Who's best? You decided. Thanks to guillaume-gui for putting this one together.
Want to know what the Tour De France winning Team Sky riders listen to on their team bus? Course you do. It's exciting, isn't it? This is the playlist you need to find out: 73 pedal-pumping tracks spanning over eight hours. With our headphones on, we're all Bradley Wiggins.
Reggie Prim knows how to entice a listener with his playlist descriptions: "Too hot to dream of Paris now, but think of her in fall. New & recent soul for imagining cool autumn evening walks," he says of his latest creation. Everyone from Fat Freddys Drop and Jazzanova to Mr. Scruff and Dub Pistols featured here.
Austin Stephens has put together a superb Green Day retrospective, taking in "greatest hits and classic cuts from their career", including brand new single Oh Love. The perfect way to whet your appetite for three new releases from the band in four months, entitled Uno, Dos and Tre.
Long live the mixtape!
