Alex Baby mixtape / 1995?

Another cherished old mix tape, dug out and digitised. This one is from Alex Baby, one time member of 23 Skidoo and then of Ronin Records, a London hip hop label. He DJed a lot in the 90s, with a residency at Rotation, but I can't find any information on what he's up to now. I think this tape was something to do with either the International Stüssy Tribe or the High Power parties that Michael Koppelman and Fraser Cooke used to put on intermittently, but I can't remember, it was ages ago.

This is a wonderful hour and a half, from the mid 90s golden era of Sean "Puffy" Combes, DJ Premier, the first wave of Wu Tang albums, The Nod Factor and Mary J. There's plenty of R'n'B to get the girls on the dance floor, but tempered with loads of good hip hop to keep the boys that don't dance happy. To ice the cake, it includes the Bad Boy mix of Mariah Carey's Sweet Fantasy, which is one of the most sublime pieces of music ever recorded.
