The House List · Ep. #142 : DJ Nikoless - Production Credits: Showbiz (DJ Mix)

Peter Agoston and his House List Podcast are back with this very special mix done by Kevin Beacham a.k.a DJ Nikoless, recorded in '98/99 but never previously released. 
This is The House List - Episode #142. 

"Although I'd been dabbling in DJing since '85, being that I was busy with MCing, Breakin'/Poppin', and Production (and I didn't own proper turntables), I didn't start focusing on DJing until '97/'98 when I started recording mixtapes with borrowed turntables and mixer, recording into my Tascam 688 8-Track. 

I exclusively focused on concept mixes, and one idea was to honor my favorite Hip Hop producers, and I started with Showbiz! I never officially released this mix, but I did give out and sell a few handfuls of dubs of it. But, I wanted these Production Credits series of mixes to be official, and being I never got the drops and other pieces from Showbiz, I didn't properly release it. That also led to me not finishing the other planned volumes; Prince Paul, Large Professor, and DJ Mark The 45 King, although the last one I did record 10 years later and that is on my Mixcloud page!

A couple months ago Peter Agoston hit me up asking if I had a new or unreleased mix I could share on his House List Podcast (Good looking out!). I wanted to record a new mix, but some of the stuff I need for that are still in storage, so I dug this one up.

This was recorded in '99, in fact, in the middle of recording it, Big L passed away, which was terrible news to receive. 

The mix features Jermaine Pratt doing a juggle of the Artifacts and Juan Presyce Cervantes doing all the scratches which are featured on the intro and then some more over the "Buckshot Lefonque" beat. " - courtesy of Kevin Beacham
