Don’t be deceived by his quiet demeanor, Mr James is the bomb ‘ish. Introducing the man who made Run DMC’s “Peter Piper”, Main Source’s “Live At The BBQ” and Onyx’s “Throw Ya Gunz” possible…

Combination Mixtape Series Vol 1: Zakee Shariff – Stardust

COMBINATION MIXTAPE SERIES VOL 1: ZAKEE SHARIFF – STARDUST

A mix produced to sit alongside London-based artist/designer Zakee Shariff‘s “Stardust” collection of clothes and accessories, inspired by a line from Joni Mitchell’s song “Woodstock”: We are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden. Although Mitchell was unable to attend Woodstock, David Crosby said that with this song she had “captured the feeling and importance of the Woodstock festival better than anyone who had been there”. This mix is centered around this tune, featuring various versions of it sung by Mitchell at different times, as well as music from Brian Eno, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Jill Scott, Heatwave, Minnie Riperton, John Lennon, and the Khalsa String Band, and poetry from Rumi and James Wright.
