“Last year saw the twentieth anniversary of the Pharcyde’s magnetic debut Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde, and it is with due reason that the label who released it back in 1992, Delicious Vinyl, have been relentlessly celebrating its legacy.
“As well as releasing a comprehensive re-issue of Bizarre Ride, Delicious Vinyl have been touring the epic live show Bizarre Ride Live with original members Fatlip and SlimKid3, and producers J-Sw!ft and L.A. Jay.
“To mark the record’s anniversary celebrations, and in anticipation of the upcoming Bizarre Ride Live U.S. and Europe tour dates, DJ Chris Read from the U.K. has put together a special mixtape for the label. Read is one of London’s finest DJ’s, and as well as being the driving force behind long-established Music of Substance, is a recording artist for BBE Records and former BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ.”
