Exploited deliver this massive double mix CD from current hot favourite, Berlin’s Shir Khan.

It includes tracks by Justice, Tepr, Munk, SMD, Mocky, Shit Robot, Diskokaine, Crookers, Yuksek, Sinden & Count, Captain Comatose, Edu K, Duke Dumont and many MANY more. Already gaining five star reviews from the likes of Mixmag, this is an essential set for fans of 2Many DJs, Optimo etc
“He makes sense of the whole shebang on this audio scrap-book of eclecticism. It’s an invigorating mix filled with basslines like buildings collapsing and enough nifty acapellas to leave 2ManyDjs shrugging.” (MIXMAG/Compilation of the Month!/09/07/UK)
“Eclecticism is a big buzzword. Sure, you can bung a bundle of tracks together – wearing influences on your sleeve like Scout badges – shake, and serve warm. Getting the dancefloor rocking is another matter altogether. For a masterclass in the latter, look no futher than Berlin’s Shir Khan.” (IDJ/UK)
“This is a full-throttle dose of Mad Professor mixing from the weird side with impromptu acapellas, re-edits, three-track mash-ups and bizarre song selections at its heart throughout. An eccentric, compelling DJ masterclass that’ll leave you open-mouthed and gagging for more.” (M8/Compilation of the month/09/07/UK)
“It is one of those mixes that perfectly captures the direction of dance music right now.” (PIMP MAGAZINE/UK)
“Hyped as the next big thing, Khan puts the proof in his pudding with this double-disc odyssey.”(TIMEOUT/UK)
