Universally known as a music nerd, DJ Mr Thing probably knows more about records than all of us put together and he’s particularly got a soft spot for hip hop records. He’s got a particularly impressive ability of finding breaks used in some of your favourite rap songs and his record collection (standing at approximately 30,00 items) was even the subject of a Crate Diggers episode by Fuse. He’s also a very talented producer who has worked with the cream of the UK’s rapping talent. If you have never seen him spin live then it’s certainly worth catching him as he’s rather impressive on the wheels of steel. In conjunction with The Doctor’s Orders, Mr Thing has released an hour-long mix called Saturday Night Live at Mr Thing’s. Full of some classic songs from Black Star, Klashnekoff, A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr and many more blending together with some very impressive techniques (Klashnekoff’s vocals from Murda over the instrumental for I Got A Story To Tell is a winner). The whole hour was recorded in one take with no edits which makes it even more enjoyable. Listen to the whole thing below and if you want it to be the soundtrack to your Saturdays download here via The Doctor’s Orders.
