DJ Monk-One Cherry Pickin'

Contributing editor Andrew Mason aka DJ Monk-One put together this mixtape back in 2003 for Wax Poetics and Adidas. It was a simpler time then, so innocent. There was no SoundCloud, no Facebook. We made a CD. A little R&B, a little hip-hop, some Brazilian and jazz. We called it Cherry Pickin’ and the folks liked it. We gave it away for free.

We just found a sealed copy sitting around, and while we hated to break the seal, we wanted to share it with you—in 2015. It’s sort of like time-traveling. But not really.
