The material included has been sampled in one way or another to create instrumentals of so many beloved songs. from  De La Soul’s “Stakes Is High,” to Method Man & Redman’s “Maaad Crew,” to Gang Starr’s “ALONGWAYTOGO”.

Just put on your headphones and welcome the end result featuring some of the masterful originals (Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder) and the hip-hop legends who sampled them (J Dilla, Pete Rock, Clark Kent).

DJ Manipulator dropped his latest original music, the Conway-featured burner “2 Drums,” this past fall.

Expect more from the deejay/producer in the coming months, but until then, kick back with this funky and, of course, jazzy mix, which is now available for free download!
