The Nonce - Mixtapes (1926 Sunday Night Remix)*
This was my shit back in the day.
Side story: I did cuts and backup vocals on a song with Nouka called "Labels" at their crib in Culver City before they made this album. It's on a cassette around here somewhere along with a few other songs from that time like "Early to Rise" - was this ever released? - If the tape ever turns up I'll post it.
*RIP Yusef Afloat*
