    Picture this: 3 DJs (Skratch Bastid, Marc Hype & DJ Expo) from 3 different countries (Canada, Germany & USA, respectively) are all in Berlin at the same time. Bastid & Expo are on the road touring in Europe on separate tours, and Marc is at home in between German & Russian tours. By the grace of a few mutual friends, they all meet at Marc's house to hang out and trade music. Each DJ cracks open their stuffed 45 road cases (they never fit enough...) and they proceed to show off the records that they packed, over sips of delicious Tegernseer. Marc has the bright idea that they should record some of this. They meet again the following day and start recording a mix. Simple enough.

    Made solely from the 45s that they took on tour, HEAVYWEIGHT CARRY-ON is 70 minutes of Funk, R&B, Latin, Hip-Hop, Dancehall & Reggae 7" records - an all vinyl mix. The added restriction with wax-only gigs is that you can play only what you can carry into the gig, and traveling tightens those limitations even more. It's whatever you can fit in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you, because no one puts their copy of Bobby Franklin's Insanity in checked luggage, right?. But that's part of the fun of it all. This is a set of tunes that these selectors trust to turn any party out while on the road. Press play and start travellin'...
