Archive Mixtape: Femi B & Rusty Live @ Tonic - Empire 1993
Femi B & MC Rusty - Tonic 1993. is one of/if not, the most important tape in my collection. Bold statement I know, but this tape more than any other truly encapsulates the raw essence of quality underground dubby house music in the mid 90's (in my humble opinion of course), and formed the soundtrack to a big part of mine and my collective of friends and aspiring DJ's lives for much of my youth.
It features the MC stylings of MC Rusty and has the finest collection of the best deep dubby house on offer from this movement defining era....
Femi B has always been a huge inspiration and personal hero of mine as far as 'favourite DJ's' are concerned, his style, along with other key members of the Feel Real crew such as Rob Acteson, Evil O ++, absolutely cemented and defined what came to be my favoured style of deep dubby underground house music through the 90's.
Some incredible tracks I became aware of from this mix include Ralphi Rosario – Quentagious EP, MK mix of Bizzare inc - Took My Love, Centric House - Alright Alright (Ethos Mama dub), Cajmere Featuring Derrick Carter – Dreaming EP - Dream States Dub plus so so many more... enjoy
