The Pharcyde "Labcabincalifornia" (25th Ann. Mix by DJ Spinna)

This 25th Anniversary mixtape is mixed by NYC’s DJ Spinna and features “Nasty Habits”, an unreleased joint from the vault that features Ralph Tresvant and Bobby Brown. Imani & Bootie Brown also asked a group of producers to remix and add their own personal spin on a few of the Labcabincalifornia songs that you all know and love. DJ Mike Relm re-works a mash up of “Drop”, SBBX remixes “Groupie Therapy”, Moka Only drops his version of “Y” and The Pharcyde’s own Bootie Brown remixes “Runnin’.” DJ Spinna is a heavily touted presence in the international soulful house music scene. He is known for his vast accomplishments as a producer; is celebrated for his “Soul Slam” events and Stevie Wonder inspired WONDER-Full DJ performances and subsequent collaborations. The Pharcyde’s sophomore album “LabcabinCalifornia” was originally released on November 14th, 1995. The group enlisted a young and then unknown James Yancey aka J DILLA to produce beats, like the cult classic “Runnin.” Labcabincalifornia has consistently and continues to reinforce their steadfast refusal to tread familiar artistic grounds. Enjoy the anniversary mix below...
