Dig In The Crates With This A Tribe Called Quest 'Midnight Marauders' 20th Anniversary Mixtape

Yesterday we kicked off SoulBounce's Class of 1993 series, and it's a given that A Tribe Called Quest's Midnight Marauders will be one of the albums recognized on its twentieth anniversary year. Our look back on Tribe's third album will come a little later in the series, but we're not the only ones reminiscing on the greatness of this hip-hop classic. The good folks at Wax Poetics and Who Sampled commissioned DJ Chris Read to compile a 20th anniversary Midnight Marauders mixtape, and Read dug deep in the crates for this 30-song long blend of tracks from ATCQ's album and the tracks that were sampled to create them. You'll hear classics by Roy Ayers, Bob James, Kool & The Gang, Minnie Riperton and so many more expertly mixed Read who plays just enough of the source material and the ATCQ tunes to get you into a good groove. Press play then prepare to nod your head as you two-step down memory lane.
