DJ Hullewud – The Break North Mixtape

“Here it is…finally!!! What do I mean by that, well I will have to take you back a few years to tell you how this one came about. Growing up in London I was always part of the hip hop scene, there wasn’t much of one but there was a small one. A few years ago I found out that there was a bi-weekly open mic hip hop night called Dirty Thursdays. I stopped in one night and was blown away by the talent this city had, I really had no idea! It was nothing like I had seen in London, all these hip hop kids coming together for the love of the music…and the
reaction some of these MC’s were getting was mind blowing….why did it take so long to get a night like this? I felt that it was about time that people outside of London knew what was going on in the Forest City. I decided to reach out to whoever I could and attempt to put together a mixtape comprised of nothing by London MC’s. The plan didn’t end up working and it was put on the backburner and forgotten about. A month ago I got an email from Brent (Just Entertainment) asking me if I would be interested in doing a mixtape for an online hip hop magazine, the only catch was that I had to include an exclusive track from one of his artists (Alex Dimez). I have been involved with a couple of Alex Dimez shows and he had passed my name on to Brent. Now normally all the mixtapes I do are old school hip hop and I just didn’t feel right doing an old school mix and dropping Alex’s track somewhere in the mix. Maybe it was time to go back to my original plan and make some minor adjustments. I reached out to as many London and area MC’s as I could, and MC’s that I have been fortunate to do shows with or have met over the past few years. The response I got was much better this time around and the tracks started flying in to my inbox. Although this mixtape isn’t the all London hip hop mix I had originally planned, I still think that it is close to what I had envisioned. There is still a big London presence on this mixtape from artists that still live in London to artists that are originally from London to artists that are from just outside of London, there are some artists on here that have no London connection whatsoever but somehow we have crossed paths and wanted to be involved. You might look at the track listing and say that you have never heard of 75% of the artists, but in my opinion it’s about time that you do! Please sit back and enjoy what I have called “The Break North Mixtape”, hopefully you all enjoy it!”
