Introducing: 100 Years of Solid Dudes

100yearsofdudesAs far as we can tell, the newly launched 100 Years Of Solid Dudes is a project from Jameszilla (of the Broadzilla DJ’s and Phillytronic dance floor wrecking crew Making Time). Head over here to download a 44 minute “car-crash sample symphony” mix that he made that contextualizes Aretha Franklin, the Ides of March, Elvis Costello, Bowie and dozens of more samples into one long funky massive mix, as well as releases from Wooden Email, Universo Paralelo, and Potent Mutant. Dig deeper into 100 Years of Solid Dudes here. Admittedly, we think there’s a little brand confusion going on here, but we like it.
