The beginning and the end of Hip Hop’s proverbial Golden Era is arguable, but anyone who was fortunate enough to experience early 90’s Hip Hop first hand witnessed the birth of some of the most influential artists, heard immense progression amongst the art form, and really saw the first steps of Hip Hop’s integration with mainstream media and popular culture. Golden Era Remixes, mixed by DJ Haylow is a tribute to the Golden Era of Hip Hop (approximately 1991-1995), but not just any Golden Era…the Golden Era Remix. There are the signature remixes of the early 90’s, and many still get radio play to this day. This mixtape features the more obscure remixes, some which you may not be familiar with, some you may have seldom heard and played at the time, and some are rare b-sides. Regardless of song recognition, Golden Era Remixes will help you relive the classic early 90’s sound, whether you lived through it or not.
On a side note, this mixtape features early production from Jay Dee (J Dilla), A Roy Ayers Sample on the Passing Me By remix, and much more notable emcees during their most formative years.
