New York City.
just wanted to inform you that I made a mix of all things sample era Massive Attack...
they've been one of the most important bands for me (when Mushroom was still in the band) and for the 30th anniversary of "Blue Lines" I wanted to pay a little tribute, so I did a chronological mix starting in the Wild Bunch era and then recreated the first 3 albums using the original samples, b-sides and remixes with two turntables, a pioneer 909 and all vinyl records. Most of it was recorded live on a twitch/mixcloud stream and then slightly remastered and edited. My friend @themattro did some special artwork for this inspired by the Mad Professor vs Massive Attack record. I hope you guys dig this...
Guys, I made a mixtape! All private press East Coast Rock, Punk & New Wave 45s from 1977-1987. Some rare ones in there, some not in the digital sphere yet. It's available on my Bandcamp but if you're in NYC, you can also pick up a tape at Captured Tracks in Greenpoint. Hope you guys dig it! https://stickydojah.bandcamp.com/album/c-old-rock-stuff-vol-1-east-coast-rock-punk-new-wave-45s-1977-1987
Vice Germany picked up the story. Soul Strut is mentioned as is Reynaldo's Africa map. https://thump.vice.com/de/article/markus-presch-pmg-vs-frank-gossner-der-labelbetreiber-der-frueher-goebbels-zitierte-afrofunk?utm_source=thumpfbde&utm_medium=link
found this here, some local nyc psych...hello strutters, it's been a while!
Cosign on The Streets, Dizzee and Roots Manuva (although it was more just his one track "Witness"). I dare say that "Witness" might be the most important "HipHop" track out of the UK ever. As in that beat/track had such an impact, it even influenced US producers and beatmakers.
Gunshot and Hijack were pretty significant where I grew up too (Germany). That whole "Britcore" scene had a big following in Germany. I remember loving Killa Instinct's first 12"s. Looking back, being non-native speakers helped us to appreciate some of those records in the same way as US releases (although the production level wasn't on par most of the times). The development of this sound from UK HipHop towards Grime blew the doors wide open though on a global scale. Lots of records that had international impact. Can't forget London Posse of course, the first UK act to be played on Yo! MTV Raps in the US ("How's Life In London"). Their first 12" is still on my want list.
