Brand Nubian 'One for All' 25th Anniversary Mixtape mixed by Chris Read

This Weekend (4th December 2015) marked the 25th Anniversary of the release of Brand Nubian's classic debut album 'One for All'. Notable for its use of unconventional sample material (see use of Edie Brickell's 'What I Am' on the smash single 'Slow Down'), this landmark release of the afro-centric era treads an unlikely path between political commentary and humorous braggadocio. In celebration of the album’s 25th birthday, we’ve teamed up with Wax Poetics to present an exclusive mixtape containing tracks from the album, alternate versions, remixes and, of course, original sample material used in the album’s production.
