Dr. Dre DJ mix 1987

Dr. Dre Old School Swap Meet 1987

Also THIS site has info and also download links.

I was sent this mix recently and it further prooves that Dr. Dre is a genius. This Swap Meet mix from 1987 is a taste of what his days as a party rocking DJ were like. This was a time before he was a gangsta rapper and producer with NWA and well before his solo years. The mix is two parts and he covers everything from bboy electrofunk to old school rap, all fused together with cuts, scratches and much skill behind the decks.

You need this one. Trust me.

p.s. Only 5 days until CAMP BISCO!!! I leave wednesday and I am DJing both Friday and Saturday. Disco Biscuits, The Roots, Thievery Corp, RJD2, Juan Maclean, New Deal, Brothers Past, Future Rock (playing the music of Aphex Twin) and many more on the bill. Check it out: CAMP BISCO V in NY
