This Weekend (14th May 2016) marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of De La Soul‘s classic sophomore album ‘De La Soul is Dead’. Following in the footsteps of 1989’s sample heavy ‘3 Feet High and Rising’, the album once again delves into unconventional and varied sample material from disco to spoken word via rock, jazz and soul with producer Prince Paul placing a unique spin on all of the above. In celebration of the album’s 25th birthday, we’ve teamed up with Wax Poetics to present an exclusive mixtape containing tracks from the album, remixes and, of course, original sample material used in the album’s production.
