On The Strength 2006 03 10


The rapidshare link on this page is ancient, and therefore dead. If you want any of these sets, mail me at fm416.mailbox at gmail and I’ll be happy to repost it when I can. Be sure to tell me which one!

Y’all wanna hear that beat right? Bring that beat back! Bring that shit back!

On The Strength is DJ O.S.U.M. (Old School Underground Music – pronounce – awesome), Fatski and DJ S.O.S. I don’t know much about these guys, since I really only discovered them this month or so. I’m pretty sure DJ O.S.U.M. did this show solo though. Check out their website at http://www.onthestrength.ca/. O.S.U.M. was being lazy that night and decided to play some old tapes he mixed years ago. No idea how old they really are, but they definitely weren’t done yesterday. All sorts of beats get thrown down in the spirit of the real mixtape. A sprinkling of reggae on both sets but mostly hip hop.

The second set is excellent – has a bunch of samples on there that will drive you nuts. Impossible to make playlists for these (but that’s a good thing – keeps the mystery intact). I love these kinds of mixes! I don’t hear them nearly often enough!
