If you grew up in the 80's and 90's, these two guys above were the coolest characters on TV. Crockett and Tubbs from NBC's "Miami Vice" were slick undercover cops who brought pastels and 2 day old stubble in style.
That slick style is what DJ's AppleJac and Jaycee of Atlanta are bringing in their mixtape series "Crockett and Tubbz." They have done two mixes and we have them both here on Mode.Radio (since we haven't done a post most of this month). We last featured DJ AppleJac in January, 2012 with this mix. Here's a little info about the mixes and DJ's:
"There are some things that just go together perfectly. Peanut butter and jelly. Lemon and lime. Vodka and orange juice. Those pairings may all be of the food and beverage variety, but something more SoulBounce's speed is the joining together of DJ homies Applejac and DJ Jaycee who've united as Dunny Crockett and Reekardo Tubbz for Crockett & Tubbz: The Mixtape, Vol. 1. The Atlanta-based turntable masters have been friends for over 20 years and are two experienced DJs who've performed together and solo extensively at home and across the country and world. With a wink and nod to the Miami Vice characters from whom they borrowed their new nicknames, Applejac and Jaycee came up with the concept of Crockett & Tubbz to celebrate the sounds of the 1980s banging everything from R&B and pop to soul, funk, hip hop and more"
There's no playlist for Crockett & Tubbz: The Mixtape, Vol. 1 because Dunny and Reekardo wanted to keep it a surprise, but you'll find choice cuts on here from Sade, George Michael, Prince and many more throwback favorites
For Volume 2 of this series, Dunny Crockett (Applejac) and Reekardo Tubbz (Jaycee) have returned with another dose of the same, from Billy Ocean to Billy Joel.
Enjoy both these mixes!
