No Sleep: NSREP-003 ft. Buckwild
"In preparing to start Celph Titled’s album, No Sleep spent 3 days at Buckwild’s studio pulling up discs, listening to tracks, and mapping out the project. It was quite the experience in finding and hearing the original SP-1200 disks of classics like “Masta I.C.”, “Put It On”, etc, as well as stuff that was never pressed with instrumentals, like “What I Represent”, and “Blowing Up In The World”. It was truly special to base Celph’s project on beats from that same time period as those songs. Amazingly enough, No Sleep also found three more DAT tapes in his stash. On these DATs were about 10 submission remixes that Buckwild had made during the busiest period of his early career. A couple of which you eventually heard on Buck’s original remix EP, but several others that were completely new. While Buckwild and No Sleep have talked since about doing a following up to that 2CD, we did not have enough material to fill it out. Putting it out as a limited EP was another option, but since there were only 5 songs (remixes only) that had final mixes, we held off. As Celph’s project was finally completed over the next two years, we realized that we would have a few leftover tracks from that as well. We also wanted to somehow put Celph’s posse track featuring D.I.T.C. and Brand Nubian on vinyl also. So hear it is; a mixture of the old and new."
