The Diary Volume 1.5 ‘Twenty Years of the Remix’ (10th Anniversary Expanded Edition)

The Diary Volume 1.5 is a ‘remixtape’ released as a follow up of sorts to Chris Read’s popular rap chronology mixtape ‘The Diary’. The concept expands on the chronology theme of the original, this time concentrating on trends in production: one iconic track from each year between 1989 and 2009, remixed in tribute to the popular production styles of the original year of release, from the James Brown influenced style of the late 80s and the jazz inflected styles of the early 90s to the unique sounds of producers Buckwild, Jay Dee, DJ Premier and others. For this 10th Anniversary expanded edition ten additional tracks put together around the same time that were not included on the original CD have been added.
