Mix Mondays – Needle To The Groove (1999)

Released only in Japan (’98), Needle To The Groove is a crazy mix of funk & neo-soul that instantly became one of Spinbad’s most acclaimed and sought after works. Truly a one of a kind mixtape “

The passing of DJ Spinbad was definitely a shocker. Back on my old site I posted many of his mixes over the years this one “Needle To Groove was first mix I heard from him.

At the time I first heard this mix it talked about fondly by many of my fellow mixtape bloggers and wasn’t easily found online until bzrwon posted on his old site The Mix Set. It’s one of my favorite mixes and contains nothing but great music. In memory of Chris Sullivan aka DJ Spinbad I hope you all enjoy this classic mixtape.
