Back in the summer of 2007, I remember Dissensus (a UK message board where some of it’s greatest music minds and critics alike used to meet and discuss Ragga, Drum n’ Bass, UKG (UK Garage), Trip Hop, Grime, Dubstep, Broken Beat, Funky House, UK indie rock & even Northern Soul) went insane over a compilation mixed by DJ Skully & produced by a young beatmaker named Chemo that featured some of the best & brightest of the UK Hip Hop scene. That compilation was called “Squirrelz With Gunz”. You remember how crazy heads went over the P Brothers “The Gas” LP? Multiply that by 3.
Chemo (or Telemachus) hit me up to tell me that an unmixed & remastered redux version of “Squirrelz With Gunz” dropped today with bonus tracks. There’s an embedded player just below, but if it doesn’t work (and it didn’t!) I have a backup plan. Enjoy:
