DJ Spinna returns to his roots on Underground Forever, unearthing a classic mix of independently released singles and sleeper favorites from the mid 90s. Before the era of online sharing and instant downloads, mixtapes were the lifeblood of the Hip Hop underground in New York. Names like DJ Premier, DJ Clue, DJ Doo Wop, Kid Capri, Enuff, Cipha Sounds and Tony Touch had their finger on the pulse of the city's emerging backpack movement, which took the culture back to basics: self-released records, word-of-mouth buzz and musical innovation.
