West End Records is proud to present a brand new mix CD series, West End Mixtape Sessions, to re-connect Hip Hop with break beat disco classics “ with its first volume mixed by the legendary DJ Marley Marl.

One of Hip Hop’s first (and finest) producers, Marley Marl was an early innovator in the art of sampling and developing new techniques that resulted in some of the sharpest beats and hooks in rap’s Golden Age. As the founder of Cold Chillin’ Records, Marl assembled a roster that included Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Roxanne Shanté, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, and Masta Ace.

For West End, Marley created a beautiful landscape of sounds and rhythms, using hits such as “Heartbeat,” “B-Beat Classic,” and “Sessomatto” “ truly providing musical insight into the sound of the early 1980s’ Hip Hop scene. As a bonus, Marley Marl sampled Sessomatto, West End Records’ very first release, on Do Like This featuring special guest MC Shan, bringing classic break beats into the 2005 Hip Hop arena.
