MIXTAPE MADNESS: Trip Hop Till You Drop on Power 96




A car ride to SoBe wasn't the same unless you had Power 96 pumping the jams out yo radio, or a mixtape you had recorded the night before while Zog was spinning live and you decided to stay home. Back in the days Power 96 was a bad ass little radio station. God knows whatever happened to it, I guess it's a simple sign of the times.

This mix was ripped straight off an old ass cassette, Gr00veMan was very good about keeping all his old tapes. I begged and pleaded that he give them all to me when he parted ways to the Big Apple, and thankfully HE DID! The quality of course is not 100%, but the music can be heard loud and clear.

"Trip Hop" to us Miamians was a mix of House and "Freestyle Breaks" with a dash of Acid sounds thrown in. Eventually the term resorted too "Trip House" which ended up being a much better way to categorize the sound as "Trip Hop" was actually already a completely different genre. Enjoy the Trip Hop Till You Drop Mixtape recorded straight off the Power 96 airwaves in 1998! -- MikeeGB

Yea Power 96 has become pure shit. It's only Hip-Hop with that fucking Crookers remix of that Kid Cudi track. These kids eat that shit up! Damn Marlon when was the last time you were down here? LOL
