Ok I will check him,... Speaking of good remixes I also forgot to mention many tracks from MATO that always got me good reaction from the crowd. (Fugees, Wu-Tang, Beastie Boys, Ludacris, Missy Elliott,...) also some by Taggy Matcher

Thank you for sharing this discussion! Covered a lot of ground but I'd also like to throw in some very early UK innovatirs such as Beats International, that had Daddy Freddy as a guest on "Don't call me Herman", Rebel MC with Clement Irie on "MC2", Skadanks, and thank you to those above who recognize Heavy D and KRS1 for their early contributions.

Love this post!

There is no Rap, but the Sound switches softly between Reggea, Funk and Jazzy HipHop'ish Grooves.
