In March of this year, BBE released a double mix CD album celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the label’s ground breaking Beat Generation series, which featured no holds barred artist albums from the likes of J Dilla, Pete Rock, Jazzy Jeff, Will I Am, Madlib and MFSB string arranger Don Cello. The CD version featured 2 full length mixes from NY’s DJ Spinna and the UK’s Mr Thing.
