Ric Flair - Leave It To The Drums

OK, this is a mix put together a couple of years back by yours truly, a.k.a. The Grand Imperial Ric Flair. 40ish joints from '84 to '87, all drum machine killers, plus plenty of scratching. I'm gonna be slightly biased here obviously, but this mix is maaaad nice, so I thought that I would put it out again.
Rammed with stupid dope tracks, some of my all time favourite joints are up in this.
Now, because pretty much all the DJs on these tracks only seem to cut up "Aaaahhhhhhh" & "Fresssshhhhh", I thought fuck it, I'll just rock that shit as well, so prepare yourselves for just those two sounds being scratched all the way, along with plenty of human beatbox mixed in for extra freshness.
Props to my man Skar for some of the vinyl used here, plus for all the fucked up text messages. And to DJ Riz for the inspiration.
By the way, this whole mix is recorded purely with vinyl, it's recorded on a multitrack, but all done live on the tables, however, I did use my MPC for the "Ric Flair" & "Strictly Business" samples that I don't have on vinyl.
This mix is noisy enough already, but fuck that.
Crank it up & leave it to the drums
