First things first: 'The Great Mixtape' more than lives up to it's name. This debut offering is the perfect introduction to hip hop artist Sampa The Great. On each original track a deep knowledge and passion for soul, jazz, funk and blues shines through. Sampa is a lifelong student of music - with a reverence and respect for past masters - but Sampa is also a pioneer, and there's a thrill of discovery when hearing these songs that cross genres and rhythms with ease, exploring themes of identity and social politics with the playfulness and power of pure poetry.
