I reALLY wanted to lay down a World Cup Mix, being the football fanatic that I am. Given that the end of the Cup is rapidly approaching, I wanted to engage in the spirit of things by releasing this mix now rather than later. That said, understand that I've sacrificed perfection (not that I ever could have achieved that) in place of getting this mix out immediately while we are still gripped with World Cup fever. The mix features football commentary from the 1970 World Cup final in Mexico, which Brazil won. The choice to use that commentary is based on the fact that it was Pele's final World Cup and he excelled in the final match against Italy. Furthermore, Brazil set the standard in terms of the beauty of the game that every team since then has aspired to emulate. So, yes, I know Brazil is out of the 2010 Cup, but the Brazil commentary in this mix is more of a tribute to the game played at its highest levels by the best team in the history of the World Cup and by the best player that the world has produced in the history of the sport. In terms of music, there's bits of broken, bits of afro house and bits of house. Hope you enjoy it. Long live the music and the beautiful game. Cheers!
