Most people know Mayer Hawthorne as a retro-styled Soul singer down with the Stones Throw crew. However, the Michigan native first burst on the scene as a DJ for the Athletic Mic League conglomerate (which also spawned 14K). Even though he’s become a pop culture sensation with his voice, the Tuxedo co-founder still likes to get busy with his hands.

This week, right in time for the new month, Mayer (who has worked with Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and DJ Jazzy Jeff) got behind the turntables for his “Super Disco Rappin’, Part 1″ mix. In this nonstop 42-minute music mix, Heads can hear some early 12” single Hip-Hop by The Funky Four + 1 More, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5, and Jimmy Spicer, as well as Maze & Frankie Beverly, Cholly Rock And The Avenue B Boogie Band, and other Disco sensations.

Hopefully more parts from this series are making their way from vinyl to the digital stratosphere soon.
