Pipomixes - De La Slow / Raw Smooth Sh*t

Picking up where the last post left off, here we have two mixes from Pipomixes, including one that's all slowed versions of De La Soul cuts. The De La Slow title will be familiar to De La Soul fans as De La themselves included a previously unreleased joint by that name on their Impossible Mission album and also used the phrase on the "WRMS: Cats in Control" interlude off De La Soul Is Dead. Pipomixes smartly started off the mix with that cut as a matter of fact.

As for Raw Smooth Sh*t, this mix harks back to another one featured in the early days of this website, that is, Sounds Like Porridge, which was featured here in January 2015. The difference this time around is that instead of blending Roc Marciano tracks with their sample sources, Pipomixes is blending in cuts from inimitable sonsgstress Sade. This mix also helps satisfy a longing for effectively slowed Roc Marciano songs that has been festering in me since I recorded a DJ doing this to "Deeper" at one of the early Casette Store Days. Stream both mixes below.
