Various Artists DJ Revolution and Total Eclipse: Draft Radio, Vol. 1
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Draft
Constructed like a radio show, this two-part mix CD sees two of hip-hop‘s finest DJs/ turntablists blend together current singles from Planet Asia, Bad Seed, Ras Kass, and a few others. While this mix utilizes a novel format, the idea is tainted by machismo-drenched skits, which add nothing but pointless smut. Despite the wasted airtime, there are some high points-like Mos Def and Esthero‘s feel-good cut "Summer Time," and Revolution‘s and Total Eclipse‘s unequaled scratching abilities. Unfortunately, that‘s not quite enough to make this one worth the price of admission.
