Mark Ski – Skilextric (Beat Tape)

blame it on JES7 May 25, 2016

DJ/turntablist/producer Mark Ski delivered a top-notch beat tape around this same time last year with his incredibly slept-on Play-Dioh Beat Compound.

Brimming with funky beats, various vocal samples and some well-timed and placed cuts, the half-hour project served as an excellent lesson in how to take obscure samples from the dustiest of vinyl and illuminating them for newbie crate diggers as well as those not quite in the know.

Today, the UK legend — who hosts his own Funk By Funk every Wednesday night at 10 PM GMT — digs deeper into his milk crates and concocts another summer-themed beat tape titled Skilextric. Listen closely and you’ll surely recognize a few of the samples used. Stream it below, but not before you put your neck brace on.
