Tanya Morgan - Brooklynati Sample Mix

Crate-diggers and beat enthusiasts alike should rejoice for this sample mix. Tanya Morgan's Brooklynati was one of the year's best hip-hop records, and I'd say a large part of its success came from the high quality production from MC/producer Von Pea. Read more about the mix below...

Chances are, if you've been looking at the countless "Best of 2009" lists that are popping up on blogs left and right, you've been reminded of just how awesome Tanya Morgan's Brooklynati was, and how it figured on your personal soundtrack this year. The album has been absolutely everywhere- ranking among the year's best according to Amazon.com, AllMusic.com, The Village Voice, The Onion AV Club, PopMatters.com, TheUrbanDaily.com, and several others. Well, in the name of Brooklynatian civic pride and the holiday spirit, Tanya Morgan emcees Von Pea, Donwill, and Ilyas are dropping a stocking stuffer on you just in time to liven up your holiday parties, the Brooklynati Sample Mix. A fascinating listen for both fans of Brooklynati and aspiring producers, the Sample Mix is a breakdown of the samples used by emcee/producer Von Pea on the groundbreaking 2009 original.

The mixtape has been under wraps for quite a while now- producer/emcee Von Pea explains: "When we were working on the album I put together this list of songs but never planned on sharing it with anyone. Just a week ago that changed because I was listening to some of my favorite sampled songs and wanted to give people a chance to hear some of the stuff we use." Von Pea thinks the tracks are strong enough to engage even a listener who has never heard Brooklynati (perish the thought). "It's a collection of good music regardless. I believe I would enjoy it even if I'd never heard Brooklynati, but it would definitely make me check Brooklynati out afterwards."
