I was first introduced to Astronote by LMNO who received some beats from him about a year ago. LMNO would come in the office and talk about these guys from France (along with French producer Yann Kesz) who had the illest beats he's ever heard in his life. Of course, when something like that is said, especially from LMNO, your attention is wide open. LMNO did not lie to me as Astronote's hard hitting beats blew my mind.
Fast forward to today. Along with Astronote's numerous remix projects (which you can find on his Myspace page), this mixtape is his latest and greatest. Alongside DJ Graffiti, Astronote remixed some of The Notorious B.I.G.'s most notable hits with the help of Erykah Badu, Buff 1, Busta Rhymes, Guilty Simpson, Big L, hosted by the one and only Talib Kweli.
