Steve Steinski,
Steinski & Mass Media & one half of the infamous Double Dee & Steinski.
Legendary cut and paste sample producer of the 80's.

A few weeks back The Boogie Down Under obtained a custom made cassette called the Steinski Sampler one of only two cassettes created.
A collection of rare Steinski pieces including different edits of his well known things like "The Payoff Mix" and "The History Of Hip Hop Mix" he produced with Double Dee.

Special thanks goes out to Irish Craig for the hook up on the tape.

Here follows is a bit more about Steve Steinski.

With partner Double Dee (Douglas DiFranco; a prince), co-produced the series of records known as The Lessons: The Payoff Mix, Lesson 2 (The James Brown Mix), Lesson 3 (The History Of Hiphop) for the Tommy Boy label. These analog tape cut-and-paste collages, still widely bootlegged (and wildly illegal), are generally acknowledged as three of the most influential works in the world of hiphop and dance music production. Cited as defintive influences by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Fatboy Slim, among others.
Freelanced as creative consultant to MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Lifetime, Showtime, The Movie Channel. Produced TV commercials. Spent all disposable income on records and women.

As a solo producer, crafted The Motorcade Sped On, turning historic broadcasts of the Kennedy assasination into a hiphop record. The NME (British music magazine) gave away a quarter-million copies of the song as a Flexidisc stapled to the cover of the magazine.

Produced We’ll Be Right Back for Island Records. Music and video of this advertising satire were licensed to Ovaltine UK for television advertising for 6 months. Go figure.

Solo productions for Ninjatune include It’s Up To You and I’m Wild About That Thing, a satire on sex licensed to Pretty Polly Bras (UK) for TV advertising campaign. Go figure.
