'Classic Material' - Chris Read (free download)

What's not to like here? The kind of music we all harp on about all mixed together with more to come!

Chris Read (remember his diaries?) has put these together and this isn't just a download. It's much more than that: "This mixtape, together with an unreleased megamix, is available on an extremely limited edition CD as part of a box set also containing a T-Shirt and 7inch artwork print available exclusively from Classic Material events and the Classic Material website".

The first mix covers 1979 to 1983 (see the tracklist and listen here) and the second covers 1984 to 1987 (see the tracklist and listen here). The mixes are free to download although after hearing them you might just want to get the special CD which also contains a bonus mix of Electro-Rap and Electro-Funk from the early to mid 80s.

The first Classic Material event takes place at The CAMP (City Arts and Music Project) on Saturday 16th October 2010 with special guest DJ Format playing a 7inch only set of early 80s Hip Hop alongside Chris Read, DJ Nickname and Daily Diggers. Entry is Free!
