DJ Zimmie continues to put out some really nice mix tapes. His most recent Footnotes series is perhaps his most ambitious project yet. According to Zimmie, the series aims to be an "encyclopedic mix series of sample-based Hip-Hop by year. Mixes will be released chronologically, multiple editions per year when necessary, to educate listeners on the ingredients of Hip-Hop." Essentially, Zimmie will guide listeners through various rap songs and their sample sources. Footnotes Vol. 1 covers songs released between '79 and '81 and is already getting love from sites like ego trip.
