Kon & Amir "On Track Volume 1-2" (Mixtape)


The story of Kon and Amir begins in the record bins of Boston. A chance encounter at Biscuithead Records in 1996 would lead to one of the best-kept alliances in the beat digging world. Within a year of their meeting, the pair cut On Track Volume 1, the first in what would be a five part series of mix discs, infecting ears with seamless blends of unparalleled beats and breaks.
