King Otto sais:
I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while; I stacked up a bunch of 45s with breaks on them, put them in an order that I thought would work and went for it. The result is 30 minutes and 102 drum breaks off of 101 45s. It’s a mix of dollar bin records and not so dollar records and comes complete with plenty of snap, crackles and pops, you know, love bites. This mix wasn’t made with cue points or sync buttons or downloaded music, this is the culmination of hours (decades) of practicing and studying music and hundreds (thousands) of dollars traveling and collecting 45s. Its an exhausting way to Dj, but it was dumb fun to make! Stay tuned for volume II!
Flea Market Funk sais:
For a long time, we’ve been into beat tapes and instrumental beat mixes. As our record pile grows bigger, we’ve been holding on to a bunch of off center, beat oriented records for a mix. So here’s an impromptu, all live, one take mix of some of those records. What are the psychological effects of beats and other drums on your mind? Possibly combined with external factors or just normal listening, we’re fascinated on how music makes one feel. The common thread that these tracks have is the drum. Whether it’s instrumental hip hop, early electronic pioneers, present day prog rock, future bass, turntablism, original soundtracks, free jazz, and beyond, the common thread in each of these records is the drum. Each one of these artists uses the drum in their own, unique way. So sit back, relax, put your headphones on and take a trip and feel the effects of the drum. If you dig, please feel free to pass on to a friend.
Mix Features Captain Rock, Steady B, DJ Cheese, Stetsasonic, Mantronix, Double D & Steinski, Run DMC, MC Shy-D & tons more.
Unwrap a fresh TDK, slip it into the JVC, hit record & check out some Fresh tunes!!!
My tribute to 2 of the most pivotal influences on my musical mindstate & the Hip-Hop scene in the UK.
Catching the legend Mike Allen on his twice weekly ‘Capital Rap Show’ & snapping up every release on Morgan Khan’s iconic ‘Streetsounds’ label was what I lived for.
I hope this tribute brings back some good memories for you, it certainly does for me.
Catch me on Twitter @SmudgeAFC
Here is a portion of Mike Allen’s “Capital Rap Show” from May 10th 1986 . I always like to hear these radio rips because of commercials from the time , rare tracks that may have only been played once or twice , and this because of it being from the UK .
J also has invited guests Peanut Butter Wolf and Dam Funk
THANK U PRINCE
Beat Junkies say:
It is an honor to have the legendary LA Hip Hop Radio personality, Mike Nardone return to the airwaves onBeat Junkie Radio. He returns to his roots by debuting his new show called “Essentials” on Beat Junkie Radio. If you’re not familiar with Mike Nardone, he was the first person to start up a college Hip Hop radio show in 1987 at KXLU (Loyola Marymount) in Los Angeles called “We Came From Beyond” as well as having a show on the defunct 92.3 The Beat called “Da Joint” with King Emz. Mike is the West Coast counterpart of the legendary NY Radio Duo, Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Garcia. This particular audio is from Mike’s 2nd show (April 9th); Our very own Rhettmatic is Mike’s assistant.
Essentials with Mike Nardone will be airing every 2nd Saturdays of each month from 4:30-6:30pm on Beat Junkie Radio, exclusively on Dash. You can listen to Mike’s show by either downloading the FREE Dash Radio App from ITunes or Google Play or listen on the web: http://www.dashradio.com.
