Mo’Wax – Headz 2B Compilation

It isn’t very often that I find an old, out of date, gem that contains many artists I love and that I wasn’t aware existed previously. It is like finding some long lost aural treasure.

Headz 2B was an un-mixed trip-hop/downtempo/hip-hop/jungle compilation released on Mo’Wax way back in 1996. It features a mixture of well-known Mo’Wax artists like U.N.K.L.E, Luke Vibert, and DJ Krush alongside jungle stalwarts Dillinja, Roni Size, and Danny Breaks. It’s a very interesting and innovative way to combine several different genres together in one comp.

All the tracks are encoded at 320k, zipped together by disk, and sound pristine.
