Wu Tang & Jimi Hendrix- 'Black Gold'

Tom Caruana, a 28-year-old music teacher from Brighton, wcaused quite a stir last year with Enter the ­Magical Mystery Chambersan album which mixes Wu Tang Clan raps with Beatles instrumentals. ­Caruana has been releasing records ­online for years, but nothing had that much impact. He had a Twitter shout-out from Wu Tang member Raekwon, been interviewed by the New York Times and seen more than 30,000 ­copies downloaded from his website (teasearecords.net). The album's big twist is that many samples are taken from ­obscure Beatles covers, by everyone from ­Dionne ­Warwick to the London Jazz Four. ­Having matched them so seamlessly with the Clan's tough rhymes and a series of Beatles interview clips, it's ­obvious Caruana is a producer of considerable imagination, skill and potential.

Following up from last years success, Tom Caruana blends the Wu-Tang’s raps with the rock ‘n roll soul of Jimi Hendrix for this mixtape titled Black Gold.Fans of both the Wu and Hendrix should appreciate this 36 Chambers meets Woodstock mash-up!
