Friday Fun:: The Uncle Fester Show Episode #1

The Uncle Fester Show Episode #1Ok, now we’ve got something! If you’re looking for some sounds to put some pep in your step, and some strut in your Saturday and Sunday for that matter, look no further. Halifax’s DJ Uncle Fester, half of the amazing production/instrumental duo The Extremities, has just released his first mixtape - The Uncle Fester Show Episode #1.

 

Uncle Fes is giving the mix away as a free download, so you have no reason not to grab it, but here’s a good reason to snatch it up: it’s an excellent reminder of why mixtapes used to be made by actual DJ’s. This thing sounds amazing, and is described thusly:

 

Uncle Fester cuts, juggles, blends, mashes and remixes his way through this 60+ minute DJ mix with the help of FreshKils and some other special kids

 

That’s pretty damn accurate I’d say, but I will add that all the music Fes selected to cut, juggle & blend is in the classic NY hip hop vein, from newer stuff featuring the likes of Skyzoo, Guilty Simpson & Royce Da 5’9, and The Roots on down to vintage stuff from Jeru, Slum Village, and even a re-working of the De La classic itzsoweezee. There’s great stuff throughout the 60+ minutes of the mix, so check it below, grab a copy for yourself, and keep your ears peeled for new music from The Extremities camp.
