When you think about the top 20 or so hip-hop DJs working in the south Staffordshire area today, you will eventually come to DJ Sigma. This former milk-float stunt driver has been scouring planet earth and has colelcted every single rap song released in 1979, as far as we can tell, and mixed them up.Why 1979? Well you fools, that was the first year to see a hip-hop record released (arguably).
I urge you to check out this scratch genius at work. This man wrote the manual on how to make these kind of mixes.
Since a restraining order brought about by the borderline popular singer Angela Winbush has rendered him housebound, DJ Sigma spent some time entering this mix into a competition on dead DJ site DJforums.com. Since the demise of that place, it needs a place to live so I went out with my net, some bait and a large padded van to catch it and bring it here to the mix sanctuary where it can play in a natural environment with some other mixes.
