A 34-minute mixtape of ’70s and ’80s reworks of old school grime bars has emerged, courtesy of illustrator and designer Mason London.

His ‘My Mixtape Is Dead’ repurposes audio clips from 2004’s Lord of the Decks 2, mashing up vocals from Jme, Wiley, Dizzee, Skepta, Ghetts, D Double E, President T and more with groove-filled instrumentals.

Mason London is Joe Prytherch, best known for his graphic illustrations that have provided cover art for a host of UK music recently, including Wiley’s ‘Boasty’, and used to work as Boiler Room’s in-house designer.
