For anyone interested in playing spot the sample, Mash Up Da Place features another sample from the Pacino Film 'Scarface' (2:19) Quite possibly an all time favorite film of DJ Hype?

I was never a huge fan of 'Mash Up Da Place' to be honest. It is far from being a bad tune and has all the trademarks of Hype at his best present, but didn't particularly grab me either. However this release contains one of my favourite hip-hop sampling jungle tracks ever on the flip side. 'Tiger Style' is a storming combination of Wu-Tang samples mashed into thundering breaks, reverses and booming bass. The amazing thing about this releases is that it pre-empted the 1996 jump-up fixation on using hip-hop samples by 2 years. Something which only a few 1994 tracks did during jungle's ragga phase back then (Skool Of Hard Knocks 'Kan Ya Feel It' is the only other track that springs to mind). Classic Ganja!
