Ode to the Mixtape v.6
Dedicated to 611 and the 215
DJ Nigel Richards
If you were a party kid in Philly the numbers 611 were synonymous with rave culture. 611 was a record store located off of south street and was, for a time, the undisputed epicenter for all things rave in Philly.
My first trip to 611 was in 1995 to pick up tickets for a party being held outside of Baltimore called Bassrush. For years, it became a place that I frequented to see friends who worked there, pick up the latest fliers, buy mix-tapes and, of course, records. The owner was also an iconic name in the Philly underground, DJ Nigel Richards.
This months mix tape is from 1995 called the Hidden Sounds of Philly mixed up by none other then Nigel Richards. The tape is very acid heavy with sounds ranging from breaks to hard house and techno. This was one of my favorites, I hope you enjoy!
