Kid Kenobi – 20 Years a Kid The Mixtapes Volume 2

 

 

Long time Australian DJ & Producer Kid Kenobi just finished his second volume of “20 Years a Kid” this time concentrating on the funky breaks / big beat side of things …..

“So stoked that I FINALLY got around to finishing the second installment of my ’20 Years a Kid’ mixtape series! This second edition covers the years 1998 – 2000 when big beat was mutating into breaks and funk influenced music still reigned supreme. It’s one of the things I love about this era, it’s all about THE FUNK. The funkier the better! Personally I feel that’s something that’s missing a bit these days and is more than due for a comeback (watch this space 😉). For those of you who remember the legendary Globe days in Sydney then this should take you right back to the dancefloor on one of those epic nights! Hard to believe some of these tunes are 20 years old! Good music never dies it seems (or at the very least stops making you bust ‘funkies’ on the dancefloor)! Hope you dig! x” – KK

Kid Kenobi – 20 Years a Kid The Mixtapes Volume 1 (1996 – 1998)

Kid Kenobi - 20 Years a Kid The Mixtapes Volume 1 (1996 - 1998)

 

 

Welcome to the first installment of my ’20 Years a Kid’ mixtape series! This first mix covers the years from 1996 to 1998 when I first started DJing in Sydney (and long before most people in Australia had ever heard of me). This first mix captures some of the tracks I was playing back then: hip hop, big beat, and early breaks. ‘Breaks’ wasn’t actually a genre yet in 1996 and you had to dig pretty hard (at your local record store) to find a good breakbeat sounding record. But that’s what made it so exciting, the ‘discovery’. I’m sure there’s a tonne of tunes I’ve forgotten on here (and there were some I left off as they didn’t quite work in the mix) but the essence of what I did back then is here, including the last track ‘Papua New Guinea’ which I’d drop last EVERY time I DJ’d.

Anyway, I hope you dig the mix! Big love and welcome to my 20 year flashback! – Kid Kenobi
