“If you know the history of The Beat Junkies, you would know that the crew is orginally 13 deep! Some of the members are a little bit well known than others, but everyone in the crew is NICE on the decks! Tommy Gunn is an OG Beat Junkie & was managing the crew in the early years while he was working for Loud & Rawkus Records during the 90’s. Tommy was pretty nice on the mix but he was so lowkey & preferred to be in the background. He made this particular mix in 2004 but he never released it officially. I always thought this mix was so dope & always bugged him over the years to just drop it! After 14 years, he finally decides to release it. This mix is definitely an “inspiration” & I hope you will enjoy the vibes & soul that he put into it. Tommy’s a humble brother & I hope he gets his props for this mix. Enjoy!” – Rhettmatic (Beat Junkies)
