A few years ago BiP_HOp started a series called “Reciprocess”, and to celebrate 10 years since the inception of the label + Philippe Petit’s 25 years of activism/DJing, he composed a 70+ minute soundtrack, cut it into pieces which were sent to friends to add their spices to. The Wire magazine liked the idea and agreed to give the CD away with their issue # 301, in March 2009.
