A mix our main man, Sydney based DJ & wax collector DJ Lambie put together way this dope mix-tape wayback in 1992-93 with no computers, no digital recorders.. just on 2 12’s & a mixer with a leaking fader and a tape deck!

The man recorded this way back  & saved in a shoe box till the he had a chance to get it on computer for us to enjoy. When you hear that crackle in the background you can be sure its not someone cooking bacon… just some of that warm static hum we all love !
