Marley Marl – In Control – Spring 1989 (?) – WBLS

3rd in the series of 6 NY Radio tapes from Dave the Ruf back in the day. This one is listed on Multiupload as being unknown as when I ripped it I wasn’t listening to it, but after listening to it this morning, its Marley Marls In Control show.

From the gems being dropped (Masta Ace, Gangstarr, 3D etc), it sounds like spring 1989 to me, with possibly Pete Rock on the wheels.


Kool DJ Red Alert – 1991 Kiss FM

Part 2 of the 6 tape pack, fast forward 5 years and this time its Red Alert. Do I need to sell Fred to you…thought not! Violator time..

Mr Magic – WBLS 20.12.86

RIP Super Rockin Mr Magic

WBLS and Juice Crew legend Mr Magic! This is part of a NY Radio 6 tape pack that I got from Dave the Ruf, about 15 years ago. All the rest are to come but for now, all there is to say is…if you dont know Mr Magic, then you don’t know £$%!

DJ Zinc & DJ Hype – Soho Live – One in the Jungle – Nov 96

Another live One in the Jungle show, this time with the Tru Playaz brothers, DJ Zinc and DJ Hype.

Prime Cuts – Radio One Rap Show – March 2001

Prime Cuts wobblin’ the Radio One Rap Show technics again!

Gee Mak, DJ Kid & DJ SS – One In The Jungle, Live at Club Manga, Edinburgh – October 1997

One in the Jungle live in Edinburgh with a couple of Scots and the Midlands big man, DJ SS (or DJ 55 as one of mates embarrassingly referred to him back in the day). I always loved SS’ rollin’ style back in the day and felt that he was underrated as he wasn’t from the capital. He’s still going now I think, but I stopped checking for new jungle in about ’98, so no idea what he’s doing now.

Stu Allan – Key 103 – 18.04.93

This was the B-Side to the recent Laurent Garnier (incidentally my least popular download according to multiupload, fact fans!).

Anyway, this is Manc legend Stu Allen on his Hard House Hour show (I think that was the title anyway), playing some 93 era hardcore. Brought some good memories of nights in Manchester back for me…
