Big Phat 90's Mixtape from DJ Woody on Vimeo.
is an amazingly gifted DJ who works in both audio and video formats - and expertly in each. The UK DJ, who came to fame as an accomplished battle DJ (ITF, DMC, Vestax
), not only impressively
utilizes the the video scratch/mix format in the hip-hop DJ turntable tradition but this this gifted guy manages to take it to a whole other next level. This skill he instantly demonstrates in his latest mind-blowing audio/video production above, Big Phat 90's Mixtape
which is a pleasing flashback to the highlights (hip-hop and pop culture) of that bygone decade's years with many featured tracks from the first part of the decade - aka the latter half of hip-hop's much heralded Golden Era.
The instantly engaging, brand new, intricately assembled 45-minute, audio visual production is made in "video mixtape" format and, as such, is equally enjoyable to just listen to or watch and listen. Big Phat 90's Mixtape
is also the 35 year DJ's salute to his favorite decade: the 1990's - hip-hop and beyond. Fresh back in the UK from some doing some gigs in Russia over the weekend I caught up with the British talent born Lee Woodbine
to ask him a few questions on hip-hop in the 90's, and also what went into making this impressive video music mix.
