Circle Research 2006 09 13

2008-02-24

For those that don’t know Circle Research is Astro, Nik aka Nix The Finger Prince and Big Tweeze. These guys put it down for 10 years, most of that on the CKLN 88.1 Wednesday 2-4AM slot. On January 30 2008 they broadcasted their last show. Seems there’s less and less college radio hip hop in Toronto as time goes on…

But never fear, because Circle Research now exists in podcast form. Now these guys are providing the beats from the comfort of home.. the first show was February 20. check them out:
The Circle Research Show podcast.

Now if anyone’s still reading.. this here is a classic episode of Circle Research from September 2006. Some really old school hip hop on set1, some 90s on set2. Set 3 has some breaks that you’ll surely recognize if you listen to any hip hop at all. Loving this shit..
