4hero's Dego Mixes It Up for SpineTV

Forging the way in the breakbeat and hardcore scenes of the '90's, 4hero's Mark "Marc Mac" Claire and Dennis "Dego" McFarlane haven't been content to lay dormant in these years, continuing to release records that explore the sounds of nu jazz, soul, and hip-hop. Now a resident of New York City, Dego focuses much of his energy on his 2000Black label (appropriately named after the Roy Ayers song) where he shares Ayers' auspicious hopes about the black community's future with a roster of future-minded artists. Dego's role in 4hero not only positions him to play curator to the next generation of influential artists, it obviously makes him an excellent, crate-digging DJ. Dego's recent mix for SpineTV has these talents on display, adding particular insight into Dego's awareness of what's current in the UK electronic music scene. Young hopeful James Blake makes an appearance, alongside new tracks from Martyn and Wiley, fleshing out an eclectic mix that spans Dilla to McCartney. A tracklist and link to the mix are below.
