The '3 Feet High and Rising' Mixtape

We dig deep for De La Soul samples in The Mixtape, a Tom Moulton Mix of an epic Gloria Gaynor track is our Version Excursion, and DJ Jazzy Jeff and Dimples D are in Hip-Hop Heaven.

Let Craig Charles provide your ultimate Saturday night party playlist as he spins his way through seven decades of the finest funk and soul tunes for your listening pleasure. If it feels like funk and sounds like soul it'll be The Craig Charles House Party.

Tonight's Version Excursion is Tom Moulton’s epic rework of Gloria Gaynor’s anthem I Will Survive. Hip Hop Heaven features DJ Jazzy Jeff and Dimples D, and to celebrate 30 years of De La Soul’s 3 Feet High & Rising album, the Mixtape digs deep to uncover some of the key samples that made the songs stand out.
