GRAND GROOVE DJ’S PRESENT: Ol School R&B Flavas *MIX CD DOWNLOAD* (Tribute to G-Bo the Pro & Double R)

Wow, it’s finally here and available for you to download ABSOLUTELY FREE!!! But first a little background on the project…

This mix is inspired by the work of legendary New York mixtape DJ’s G-BO THE PRO AND DOUBLE R, with special thanks to our homie DJ NEIL ARMSTRONG for putting us up on game. Awhile back Royale showed me G-Bo the Pro and Double R #21. It was an instant hit recieving HEAVY rotation in the car. Roy then suggested the idea that we re-do the tape, a cover per se, adding our own Grand Groove touches throughout. Covering a mixtape, who does that!? So that’s what we did! We re did the B Side of the tape and flipped the cover too (thanks to Committee designs). While we kept a lot of the original tracklisting we also included some of our own personal favourites and original blends that we felt would fit in the mix. Here’s the original cover and tracklisting…

3 years (a crashed comp, lost files, and crazy procrastinating) later, it’s finally out and available for you to download for free! It’s only here for a limited time though so hurry up grab it now, blog it, bump it, and enjoy it! You’re welcome.

***thanks again to the homie G-BO for all your help! The entire G-BO THE PRO AND DOUBLE R catalogue has been reissued in digital form. If you like what we did (even if you didn’t), support the dudes who gave us the idea by purchasing a copy of their work!***
