Various Artists Exclusive Collection: Mixed By DJ Rhettmatic
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Up Above
Now that DJ mixtapes are a sanctioned format, they've become tricky. Previously, track selection was left up to the DJ. Nowadays, the labor of getting song-use permission comes heavily into play. As a showcase for Rhettmatic's DJ skills, this mix is great. As a smorgasbord of songs, it's less successful. There are some tight tracks by the Beatnuts and Tony Touch, but other cuts are middling fare, and almost all of them are widely available. This isn't a bad mix, but it's not essential listening.
