Thanks for making this gem available.


This DJ mix was intended to sit by side with the individual remixes found on the Raiding The Vaults digital release. The tracks are an intriguing selection of classic Rae & Christian remix instrumentals with well known a capellas from Northern Sulphuric Soul and Sleepwalking laid over the top. The majority of these remixes for well known artists were released without the instumentals so they have been taken from original DAT tapes. The beats were made when Rae & Christian were doing remixes for the likes of A.D.O.R, Omar and Jay Z. It was recorded in 2006 but never saw the light of day until 2016 when it was recovered from an old hard drive. Highlights include some material that has never been released on any format, for instance the phone call of a stalker that bothered Bobby Womack is included on the build up to the remake of "Get A life". Out takes of Bobby's vocal on "Wake Up Everybody" are also used over new music. The Pharcyde, Jeru The Damaja, YZ, QBall & Curt Cazal, Veba all star over beats that may be unfamiliar to many as they are gathered from an extensive selection of DAT tapes.
