Up In My Ear: Free Summertime Mixtape from DJ Jazzy Jeff

Summertime Mixtape

DJ Jazzy Jeff x Mick Boogie Summertime Mixtape

If you’re bad, I dare you to download this mixtape!!! There’s so many classics, taking you on a journey through moods of a summer’s day; light, dark, shade, clouds, clear skies, evening, sunset et-cete-fkn-ra… It’s the most impressive mixtape I’ve heard from none other than the ‘Don Gorgan’ himself DJ Jazzy Jeff, alongside Mick Boogie, in conjunction with Undrcrwn and Motivation Boutique. This has been out for over a month but I’ve just discovered it, and it’s been in my ear ever since. It oozes style and coolness to provide your summer BBQ, drink up, impromtu evening soiree with a nice eclectic, in a cool way, soundtrack.

Don’t just take my word for it, check the track list below, and if you’re intrigued or know about the songs, me and my siblings stayed up late on saturday nights to tape Yo! MTV Raps, then by all means click the album cover for your free download.

I’d like to say a big shout to my siblings because we’d be in the living room, camped out in front of the TV, recording the whole of Yo! MTV Raps on VHS, because saturday was take away night, KFC or McDonald’s…

Peace and Love


If you don’t happen to enjoy the mixtape, I ain’t forfeiting my kicks on the basis of you not being able to get nostalgic with me and my fellow people who grew up listening to all of this, because you may not have even heard any of the songs.

I advise you to give it a try, and let me know how you feel because the songs on here are from an era where it didn’t matter what you looked like or how many people were going to buy something, it was purely about the music, hence the serene feel. It’s far from contrived and that’s what I love about it.

Track of the tape: MJ – I Can’t Help It, Black Moon – Who Got The Props, Skee-Lo – I Wish… All amongst so many personal favorites.

Until Next Time…
