This is the 7th in the Boomkat online store's 'Boomkat Select' series. It was originally manufactured as a 1000 copy CD for sale on the site, but it's long gone and out of print so I thought I'd like to make it available from me personally after years of it floating around physically or digitally after being sold out!
You can expect to hear Ghostface Killah, Sage Francis, Sufjan Stevens, Cyne, Murs, Iron & Wine, Gza, Stars Of The Lid, Yaggfu Front and among others my good friend the angel of mercy. No, serious.
Here is what Boomkat wrote about 'A Crew Called Self':
"...What else is there to say about this character that hasn’t already been said? Barely catching his breath after a showstealing slot at this year’s Sonar festival, fronting for the Lex imprint on the Main stage, getting handy with the Warp back catalogue for a special mix cd included with its much discussed “Warpvision” DVD celebration, hanging out with all sorts of characters and luminaries from all ends of the musical spectrum and now – finally – coming correct with this unbelievable mix session that sounds like it’s taken a lifetime to construct. Full to the rafters with insanely clever edits and funny cuts, special contributions from his many well-known b-boy homies, lots of never before aired pieces plus the kind of narrative only the very finest mixes ever offer up (and believe us, these are a RARE commodity) - Buddy Peace has landed on our roof and ripped us to shreds with his incredible skills. What a profound honour to have the man at the controls give up so much of his time for us and for you – here’s the 7th mixtape in our series presented in full Buddy technicolour – listen and listen again in total awe. Thanks Buddy!!..."
I will post up a tracklisting for you when I have it written out but in the meantime, please come here:
...where there is a tracklist.
Many thanks, and I hope you enjoy the mix!
