#TBT – DJ Eleven – Canadian Bacon



Serious throwback this week from DJ Eleven for TBT. Going back to the tail end of the 00’s for his Canadian Bacon Mix.

And Eleven’s Bay Area influence is all over this thing, especially in the first 20 mins or so. Throwbacks from the likes of Rick James, James Brown and Rolling Stones make an appearance. Give this super fun mixtape a re-listen (or first listen) today. Stream up top and free download below.
