For a long time, the Mastercuts series has issued jazz-funk, soul and club essentials – and they're now putting out excellent club oriented comps, and even covering the pre and after sets! And like their great Early Hours set, this before the club mix serves up a nice cocktail of tight soul, smooth club tracks, modern beats and even a few nice hip hop numbers! It's a good thing most bars don't play sets this hip, or we'd never make it to the club! 26 tracks in all, including Blackstreet
's "No Diggity", Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman", Masters At Work with Roy Ayers "Our Time Is Coming", Rhythm Is Rhythm "Strings Of Life", Grandmaster Flash "The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel", Blondie "Rapture", Lyn Collins "Mr Big Stuff", Herbie Hancock "The Essence (Joe Clausell Sacred Opus mix)", Shaun Escoffery "Days Liek This (DJ Spinna & Ticklah mix)", Mantronix "King Of The Beats", Gangstarr "Take A Rest" and Maceo & The Macks "Cross The Tracks".
