I recorded this back in 97, in my bedroom in NW London. A lot of exclusives on this.. Roots Manuva dubplate with Skinny Man, Falacy & Lewis Parker, as well as all the new heat from the time.
At this time Roots Manuva, Skinny Man and Supa T didnt really have any releases out, and this was the first time a lot of people in the UK and around the world got to hear them.
POINTLESS BUT TRUE FACTS ABOUT THIS MIXTAPE !
1 - The comedian Russell Peters used to hook me up with promos and gave me my copy of " Northern Touch"
2 - All the freestyles were recorded in one night at my flat using Braintax's studio. I made Roots Manuva a pizza as he was hungry and had no money at the time. Skinny man smoked the flat down.
3 - The cover was drawn by the world renowned Parisian graffiti artist KAY ONE.
4 - Tony vegas gave me his copy of the only test pressing at the time of "Itchy Town" I gave it it's 1st play on a mix i did on Choice Fm for 279 and also put it on this mixtape. Tony also gave me his spare DMC mixer, which i used to record this mixtape on.
Shout to Paul for the rip
