"i got this cd used for 5 bucks at a cd/record convention, it was all scratched, but wanted to hear it. it played well enough for me to realize this is something special. the problem with the cd is the sound quality, it's a room recording, so it's a little hollow and flat. that being said you need the cd AND dvd to enjoy it fully. the dvd is sick kiddies, sick. i thought it would be some trip hop/techno exercise with scratches over it. and boy was i WRONG. it turns out to be a set of rare soul/funk/r&b and some old school hip hop thrown in for good measure. the mixin is impeccable, it's all on 45's, which means more when you see them scratching tiny records, it is both funny and amazing at the same time. the same can be said of the freeze set as a whole. you are either laughing and nodding your head, smiling and nodding your head, or just nodding your head. no lie, i was shocked these white boys had it in them. being black, i didn't think this freeze set would get me into music made by people of my ethnicity, but it has. there are some songs that if you know your stuff, you'll be like "oh that's from...", so that's cool. then there's stuff that you're like "where the f*&k did they find THAT! then realizing they are super serious "crate diggers" i mean you've seen scratch right? with dj shadow in "the basement" of that record store? it's mindblowing to say the least. cut chemist is nasty as well and i will not play favorites, his love of the music he plays is evident. everyone's enjoying themselves, that's very visible, and makes it all the more lovable."
