With the summer being blazing hot I haven't had that much time to update the blog lately, and as I haven't made a compialtion for quite some time and I never before done based on of DJ Scratch's incredible catalouge I think it's about that time, don't you. Featuring 17 stand out tracks produced by George Spivey not featured on any of the album that the's been heavvily involved in (like all the Busta and Flipmode albums), ranging from his earliest production on the "I'm Mad" remix for EPMD back in 1990 to LL Cool J's "Rocking With The G.O.A.T." and as a bonus track I added his most recent remix, the lead single from his new Nas / Illmatic remix album which unfortunately is only available in digital for purchase. "Scratchmatic" which dropped late last month was released on the low-key and can be downloaded for a reasonable price @ DJ Scratch official site so HURRY UP and BUY!
The title is slightly ironic considering that a lot of people thing that DJ Scratch and Busta Rhymes' tour DJ and sometimes producer DJ Scratchator is the same person. Spivey definitely didn't proudce cuts like Mehtod Man and Busta's "What's Happening" to name one. But this is a great mix that I suggest you give a front-to-back listen as it's properly sequenced and works as a great career overview and features a wide array of Scratch's different style, featuring work for 50 Cent, PMD, EPMD, Erick Sermon, LL Cool J, Tha Alkaholiks, Xzibit, Cassidy/Nas/Quan, GURU and more. Don't sleep, and watch out for volume II in this series. This one goes out to you Mal! Enjoy my trusted readers and TURN IT UP LOUD while you're at it!
