Lord Finesse & DJ Mike Smooth - Funky Technician

Lord Finesse (most-recognized as the founder of the D.I.T.C. crew) & former partner DJ Mike Smooth released one album under Wild Pitch Records (home to Gang Starr, Main Source, etc), releasing their debut 'Funky Technician' in 1990.

The album showcased production from then-upcoming beatmakers DJ Premier, Diamond D, and Showbiz -- in many ways the introductory page for the D.I.T.C. roster and New York's underground legends.

Any fans of the Show/AG output, pound-pave old school hip-hop, or whatever else you want to coat it with, will find thirteen classic cuts of some of the greatest in the game.
Also worth checking Finesse's comeback after being dropped from Wild Pitch, 'Return of the Funky Man' from '92.
