Haroon Al Qahtani - Appetite For Deconstruction

Hailing from Pittsburgh my brother Haroon Al Qahtani has put together another great mix. Like his previous mixes "Turkish Coffee Breaks", "Mixwhatchalike:No Genre Required" and "Dope On Silicon" Haroon spins an eclectic blend of tunes in a Hip Hop style. Haroon explains his new mix this way:
"Mix tapes throughout the years have generally been themed around particular eras, genres, or eras in a specific genre; sometimes they focus on specific artists, technical abilities, or in their lowest form, a presentation of new songs, oftentimes not even mixed, but accompanied with plenty of shouting.

Appetite for Deconstruction should be consumed in its entirety as a complete work, not just a series of songs chained together through scratching and mixing. By ripping apart and recombining various styles, some of which seem at odds with one another, we find something new.

In short, this is the essence of Hip-Hop. New Order and INXS, if presented within the correct context, can be equally 'Hip-Hop' as Nas or Run DMC. After all, what was "Rock Box" about? Enjoy!"
