FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD: Clarence Carter’s “Backdoor Santa (Blend Kings Edit)” Carter – Backdoor Santa (Blend Kings Edit) by OaklandFaders

DJ Enki & DJ Platurn are collectively known as The Blend Kings, and they have a number of tracks you can hear on their Mixcrate page. The latest tune from the camp is their edit of Clarence Carter‘s “Backdoor Santa”, a song known in hip-hop circles as the source sample for Run-DMC‘s “Christmas In Hollis”. What’s different about this mix? It’s sourced from the stereo mix, so the extreme panning has been centered a bit more, and the pitch is lowered to that as heard in “Christmas In Hollis”. Take a listen, and afterwards, head on over to their main collective, The Oakland Faders.
