M.I.S.S. In The Mix: Mick Boogie’s Excursions: A Tribe Called Quest

Mick Boogie's Excursions: A Tribe Called Quest

DJ Mick Boogie has released Excursions, a mixtape featuring hip-hop innovators A Tribe Called Quest.  The mixtape comes in a wave of what appears to be nothing less than a Tribe revival.  Mick Boogie himself has said he was inspired to compile the mix after seeing Michael Rapaport’s new amazing/controversial documentary, Beats Rhymes & Life (amazing for fans, controversial if your name is Q-Tip [peep what he’s had to say about it here]).

Says Boogie:

This is NOT a greatest hits mix. This mix is for the true Tribe fans only… the die-hards who know every lyric and remember every interlude. I thought it would be cool to basically create the “lost” Tribe album… with all the rare songs, demos, limited-edition remixes, and collaborations you may have missed over the years.

Excursions presents 27 tracks of familiar and not-so-familiar material that spans ATCQ’s entire 5-album career (and beyond).  Mick B. doesn’t give you a tracklist (although we do, shh!), so I listened to it blind – much the way you might put in a new record and let it play without consulting the cover until it was over.  The journey through time and production value, along with appearances from Busta Rhymes and J. Dilla, kept it interesting.  Fans will love the nuances here, the remixes and live performance they may not have in their collections.  Non-superfans and neophytes will definitely find themselves noddin’ their heads along and smiling, too.  You really can’t go wrong with such great material.
