DJ Feadz - Stagnation Reversed 2

Back when paper rap magazine was still a thing in France, you could mailorder in each issue the latest cassette mixtapes from the local DJs. I copped a few this way but here's one I really wanted and missed at that time (2002). 
It featured a promising tracklist (a good blend of new-york and westcoast indie rap plus some more obscure electro/breakbeat stuff), a nice abstract artwork reminiscent of Mo'Wax (at least it seemed to me at the time - and by the way most of the usual mixtape artworks were so ugly and generic that things like these couldn't go unnoticed) and a solid DJ (Feadz, who I only knew was closely related to Mr Oizo -which I loved). No need to say, I was sold way before even listening a second of it.

Thanks to the internet it resurfaced on various blogs a few years ago (last time I checked it was on a couple of soundclound accounts as well). So here you go.

And yes, it was all that was expected: well mixed, some adventurous blends (Oizo vs APC or Kool Keith), a good balance of uptempo tracks and some more weird electro-oriented productions.. no big discoveries but a good, solid mixtape overall.
