Sunshine, Beats and Rhymez
Back in the old days the compilation album was my primary means of discovering new artists. Internet speeds were slow, and the 15-second 28-bit audio snippets the online webstores had to offer were useless when it came to sampling an artist's sound. This was one of the many comps I picked up back then: I recognized a couple names I liked, and a whole bunch I didn't recognize. Here was my first introduction to The Mountain Bros, Eclipse 427, Zion I and many others, in the mix with a bunch of heads I already followed like Latyrx, Medusa and the Visionaries. From the dark ages of 1999.
