This week's entry for "Mixtape Monday"s is called "Malcolm McLaren Tribute Mix" by none other then Gang Starr's DJ Premier. I came across this mixtape while I was checking out Premier's blog site "". This is a mix Premier put together right after the death of producer/manager Malcolm McLaren last year. You might be familiar with Malcom McClaren for introducing the world to the godfathers of punk rock, The Sex Pistols. What a lot of people might not know is that he's also responsible for exposing hip hop to the United Kingdom. Malcom McLaren himself was introduced to hop hop in the early 80's from the legendary Afrika Bambatta. Thru that meeting, Malcom met New York radio DJ's The World Famous Surpreme Team. Together they recorded the album "Duck Rock" that featured the b-boy classic "Buffalo Girls". This tribute mix has alot of songs that Malcom either produced or was heavily involved with like "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" by Yes, & "Moment Of Love" by Art Of Noise. Malcom was one of the first producers to successfully combine hip hop, funk & punk rock into one sound. If you're into current groups like Kings Of Leon, Passion Pit, Holy Ghost & MGMT, then you'll get an idea of where they got there sound from. Like Primo say's at the end of the mix, "Do Your Homework". Punk rock aside, Malcolm McLaren was also a legend in hip hop. Enjoy Knyewtrons...Neva.
