"DJ''s OBI-1, Decaf & Stratagy - Cheese, Eggs & Welches Grape (Hip-Hop/Vancouver, BC) Along the lines of Kid Koala or the Skratch Piklz, this is a richly textured collage of beats, samples, random sounds and turntable trickery blended together like gumbo, served up hot and bound to get your head nodding...Definitely one of the most creative mixes I''ve heard this year."
