J.Period & Q-Tip – The [Abstract] Best Vol. 1

I meant to post this a long time ago when it was released but never got around to it. The mix is a tribute to Q-Tip, mixed by J.Period. It features a long list of artists from De La Soul, The Beastie Boys, The Jungle Brothers to Blu, Amaanda Diva and Talib Kweli. Great music, all available for free on J.Period’s website.

Fuse Green, designer of the album cover, contacted me and passed along his portfolio site. Fuse works out of Brooklyn, NY, at one point working as a creative director/designer for Ecko Unlimited and as a senior graphic designer for Rocawear. There’s a lot more work and info on his website. I really like the collage work he did on the Q-Tip mix, especially the use of that strange object from Ramp’s album Come Into Knowlege. Above is another cover he did for J.Period, this time for a Roots mix. Below is one of my favorite tracks from the Q-Tip mix, De La Soul’s version of Tribe’s “Excursions”.
