Now we may not agree on everything at HTDJ HQ, Kaz's affection for New Jack Swing and Mariah Carey for instance, but one thing we all agree on is that Maurice Fulton is the absolute don.
For all the Dilla heads; you need this.
Cosmic Slop, Saturday 29th May, Hope House Gallery, Leeds
Cosmic slop returns to the Hope House Gallery for this very special bank holiday weekend party.
Now those of us involved don't want to blow our own trumpets or anything, but as the growing numbers of those who have experienced the previous parties will attest, there really is nothing like this in Leeds.
Great music (we hope), amazing atmosphere, magnificent sound system and an incredible venue all add together to create a very, very special party.

Asylum & Technique Garden Party, 30th May 2010, Faversham, Leeds
Hang The DJ will be hosting the fantastic Invisible Marquee at this month's Asylum-Technique garden party and it's shaping up to be a very special evening.
This week's mix comes in the form of The Roots' drummer's takeover of Gilles Peterson's Radio 1 Worldwide show back in September 2005. The mix showcases the original samples used to create so many special hip-hop records over the year, it's a true education.
Anyone interested in Hip-Hop needs to check this mix.
