DJ Excel

Ol’ head DJ Excel of Philly’s Skratch Makaniks crew is one of those rare DJs that possesses both insane turntablist skills and the rare ability to rock any party. After regrettably missing Edan’s set last week at SOM’s Change the Beat party (which was apparently unbelievable), I’ve been rabidly devouring classic hip hop sets in an attempt to make up for my absence on Tuesday.

Fortunately, DJ Excel just posted this gem up last week and it is sick. I just wish it were longer.

DJ Excel – Freedom of Beats (The Classics)

As a bonus, here is a classic mix by Crooklyn Clan’s DJ Riz — possibly the best doing it today:

DJ Riz – In the Mix Side B (1994)

Enjoy.
