Paleo-turntablist mixes, back from obscurity

Andy sez:

Double Dee and Steinski's "The Lesson," created in the early 1980s by two hobbyist DJs, sampled countless unauthorized sources (by dual cassette decks!) to create something innovative and new. Of course, the three songs were never made commercially-available because clearing the samples would have been impossible.

"The Lesson" later inspired an entire genre of cut-and-paste turntablists, from DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist to basement "mash-up" makers. Previously available only by bootleg, you can download the MP3s here. Like Ryan said in the thread, "Long live open source culture!"
