Missed Mixtapes #12
Dominic Roarty digs deep in the internet’s musical treasure troves to bring you the mixtapes you shouldn’t miss…
Happy New Year readers. This week I have chosen a good old fashioned hip hop mixtape from Denaun Porter, full of skits, short tracks and cameos.
Titled “Porter Chops Glasper”, it is a selection of tracks taking their inspiration from and using Robert Glasper samples. Porter sourced these snippets from a number of different places, including his music from the internet, official releases, and even live performances that have been recorded for posterity.
You can’t get much better than Denaun’s Happy Song:
The tape is available for free download here and is intended as a taster for Porter’s debut studio album, “The Memo” which was supposed to be out at the end of 2013, but has yet to materialise.
