DJ Moe Love - Digging In The Tapes Vol 1 / I Ain't Dead Yet - 2016

LP - 2016 - King Of The Beats 

" Moe Love presents the first album from the series of lps from the film Looking for the Perfect beat,  a collection of beats that came from his vault, this album spanning a period from 93 to 2015.  Mastered from tape this album is a must for your collection and a must for any of you DJs that cut up doubles for M.C’s.
For those that know the history of the group, they was one of the first bronx crews to get their hands on a SP 12, Ced G mastered it and along side Paul C and the group consisting of Kool Keith, TR Love and Moe created and put together the classic ULTRA LP CRITICAL BEATDOWN.  This was a group that were Innovators and a inspiration for many of the great producers that came after "
