CD Review: Various Artists (Mixed by the X-ecutioners), Scratchology (Sequence)
The X-ecutioners crew (DJs Roc Raida, Rob Swift and Total Eclipse) successfully mix early influences in this brief turntable history lesson and welcome addition to the Sequence Records Series (which includes entries by Dan The Automator and Tony Touch). Even if you have some of the tracks already (like "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel" and Herbie Hancock's "Rockit"), they are given new life alongside rarer tracks by DJ Cash Money & Marvelous Marvin, Davy DMX and Mixmaster Gee & The Turntable Orchestra. There are also several interesting interludes and a healthy dose of Roc Raida's ego ("I'll Kick Ya Ass"). - Iain K. MacLeod
