Hot off the press our man local musician,producer & DJ Katalyst put together this dope podcast.

This mixtape together as a prelude to my upcoming album – DEEP IMPRESSIONS out in September.Apart from a few sneaky edits (to highlight the moments used by some of the best producers to have turned on a sampler) the tunes are as they appear on the original wax. This series is dedicated to one of my musical inspirations and heroes The Left Rev Eugene McDaniel’s who passed away 29th July 2011. If your reading this and don’t know who the great man was…… do yourself a favour and get familiar! This is Part 1…. more in the series to follow so stay tuned…

Peace
