I've been meaning to do this "Lifeforms" mix for so long. After all those purist Hip-Hop mixes I wanted to turn the tables a bit. This not-quite-authentic Hip-Hop has always been frowned on but in the end it has ended up being re-appropriated with surprising gusto. The influence of Techno on "proper" Hip-Hop in particular is undeniable. I've been really pleased with how it came out - how leftfield stuff like Lootpack, Shabazz Palaces, Sensational sits together so beautifully with the beats end of Glitch and Techno.
