Nu-Mark is a very dope, very underrated DJ, and this CD won’t do much to change that. It’s smooth from beginning to end, but it really doesn’t do justice to what Nu can bring to the tables. For a mixtape called Hands On, there’s very little hands-on wax manipulation, which may disappoint those looking for Nu to flex his considerable skills. He does set himself apart from the crowd, though, by including a chunk of good, unheard foreign hip-hop as well as his slammin’ collaboration with “Chali 2na, Chali 2na Comin’ Thru.” This mix is a solid listen, but knowing what it could’ve been diminishes what it is.
