1991 - Nice & Smooth - Hip Hop Junkies (Chris Read Remix)

This remix of Nice & Smooth’s ‘Hip Hop Junkies’ originally appeared on the 2009 remix compilation ‘Diary 1.5: Twenty Years of the Remix’ and was subsequently featured as a bonus track on the Classic Material Edition #5 mix CD. As with all remixes from the Diary collection, the production style owes something to popular production styles of the day. In the this instance I took some inspiration from the SD50s, Electra Records remixers of choice, notable for their bouncey productions liberally borrowing recognisable Jazz-Funk hooks.
