Pop Art, 1986. Sealed ... $1.99
We're almost embarrased to admit it, but we still kinda like these crazy one-off novelty singles from the mid-80s. If you like that kind of stuff, this one is sort of like "Roxanne, Roxanne" but a little more hardcore, with better production and DJ work. And, as a bonus, you get Craig G doing beatbox – yep, the same Craig G. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Now Again, Early 70s/2006. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Bill Withers' classic get some nice treatment here from the Kashmere Stage Band – who themselves get remix work by J Rocc and Oh No! Kashmere's original version of "Ain't No Sunshine" is done in a slow burning mode with great sax lines, floating female chorus vocals, and a compressed groove that's slyly funky without hitting you over the head. J Rocc adds in plenty of bottom beats and give the tune a bit more of a hip hop reworking on production – but Oh No really preserves the gentler feel of the original, and only makes the drums trip over themselves a bit more in the rhythms! 12-inch, Vinyl record

MC ShanBeat Biter (radio, extended)/The Bridge/Dub Biter ... 12-inch
Bridge, 1986. Good+ ... $29.99
If you want to appreciate BDP's "South Bronx", you've gotta hear this one. If ya don't know...: MC Shan recorded "The Bridge", saying hip hop started in Queensbridge, Queens. BDP replied with "South Bronx", setting the record straight (as we see it). "South Bronx" uses the same beat and replies to "The Bridge" almost line for line. – MC Shan then replied with "Kill That Noise" – followed by the final word from BDP with "The Bridge Is Over", Shan's first single was "Feed The World" on MCA (which explains KRS's line "You got dropped off MCA, cuz the rhymes you wrote was wack" on South Bronx.) We won't even begin with the other entries in the Queens/Bronx Battle like MC Poet's "Beat You Down", which was directed at KRS. . . . And you thought the LL/Canibus/Wyclef battle went on too long! Plus, there's the a-side, "Beat Biter" MC Shan's classic cut where he accuses LL Cool J of stealing his beat for "Rock The Bells". He calls out LL at the top of the cut, but even if it wasn't clear who he's talking about, Marley Marl cuts in a sample of Foghorn Leghorn saying "I think we know who that somebody is..." The beats are, of course, similar to LL's "Rock The Bells", the verses are some of the best mid-80's battle rhymes, and the extended version has some nice scratching by Marly Marl. All that trivia aside, the record is up there as one of our favorites from the class of '85. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Produced by Duke Bootee with scratches by DJ Finesse, the Point Blank MC's use the heavy beat production style of the early Profile singles, similar to Coast to Coast's "Word of Mouth" and the rock-the-party loud vocal style of '83-85 hip hop. It might sound dated to some, but to us it's still a great example of hip hop vocals between the classic old school rhyme style and the post-Run-DMC MC's. Plus the sticker on the cover has the MCs in some early 80's hip hop flix. 12-inch, Vinyl record

A mad bit of drum heavy, funky excellence from Beat Junkies founder J Rocc – a killer mix crafted from the vintage private press recordings anthologized in the Enjoy The Experience compilation and book from Sinecure Books! Enjoy The Experience is an incredibly diverse set, though funky jazz, jazzy funk and funk rock were a big part of the package. J Rocc hones in on that, but truly puts his distinctive turnablist hip hop stamp – with driving funky beats that don't let up. This is a quinessential example of a great DJ crafting brilliantly unique material from found sounds! 3 long tracks on 2 sides: "ETE Part 4 (Instrumental)", "ETE Part 1" and "ETE: The Beat Edition". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Despite the title "Planet Rock" is not a new version of the Bambattaa/Soul Sonic Force track. Instead it features the bassline from another old school track (Funky 4 +1?) , plus guest vocals from L-Fudge. "Planet Rock" and "Punchline" use that underground style where the vocals float above the beat – not really on-beat or off-beat – maybe like Co. Flow or something on Fondle Em.

The third collaborative EP from adventurous production legend Madlib and MC Freddie Gibbs! As cool is Madlib's more envelope-pushing, unpredictable and cosmos expanding productions are, it's always fantastic to hear him produce for no nonsense rhymers. "Deeper" has a chilling bit of soul strings soaring over a spare, moody beat that's a perfect foil for Freddie's vocals. "Harold's" is another gritty soul steeped track with tough rhymes. Includes vocal and instrumental versions of "Deeper" and "Harold's" – plus the bonus beats "Ups & Downs" and "The Long Walk Home". 12-inch, Vinyl record

A few more slices of sci fi weird hop from MC Doom, and mad, mad, Madlib! "Illist Villains" is the villain manifesto showcase for Madlib, burying deep, creepy organ and synth washes into a bunch of layered sci fi flick sound bites and beats. Doom does his thing on "Curls", rolling slow, early Wu Tang style menace over Madlib's rolling piano beat. The flip side is just that – a straight up mirror image of the A-cuts – with "Scene Three" serving as another sci fi production showpiece, and "All Caps" brings in Doom's slow/deep delivery and catchier, if no less creepy crackling Madlib beats. 12-inch, Vinyl record

"Sweet Power" has a spacey club groove that's just great – and "Free" is every bit as fantastic! Best up is "Slick City" – a dancing little groover that has some very tight drums, and a kicking beat that won't let up! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Paul Hardcastle19 (extended, destruction mix)/The Asylum (It'z Weird) ... 12-inch
Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $2.99
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pharoahe MonchAgent Orange (single version) (clean, inst, dirty) ... 12-inch
Rawkus, 2003. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The Pharoahe returns with "Agent Orange", his weapon in the war against wack hip hop, and a verbal brick tossed at the window of the Oval Office. The politics don't get in the way of the beat, though – the SA-RA production falls just over the gritty-right of HOT – with a deep electro pulsing squeel building up to the chorus. The world of hip hop needs the manic, freaked-out likes of Pharoahe Monch right now, and it's great to have him back on the radar! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a stickered sleeve.)

Redds & The BoysMovin' & Groovin' (long, short vocal, special dub mix) ... 12-inch
TTED, 1985. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Redds & the Boys never made it big on the national scene like Trouble Funk or EU, but they were one of the stronger Go Go acts, and this great single from '85 shows that, with some nice horn stabs in the chorus, chanted group vocals and a heavy syncopated beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original TTED promo pressing. Labels have some marker.)

SkyyHigh/Skyyzoo ... 12-inch
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good ... $6.99
Larry Levan worked some incredible magic with Skyy's "Skyzoo" – turning a simple funk tune into a massive bit of dancefloor groove! The cut rolls out with a snapping, chanting beat from the very first note – hitting a nice party funk vibe in the first part, then moving into an even better old school blend of funky keys and tight guitar! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Salsoul sleeve,with a tear.)

StrafeSet It Off (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Jus Born, 1984. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The seminal electro classic, with the hook that just won't quit. We always look back on this single as one of those proto-hip hop records, that doesn't really qualify as hip hop or even rap, but are almost instantly recognizable to heads everywhere. No rhymes here, just chanted/sung vocals over a popping drum machine beat and some nice electro sounding production that's heavy on the synths in the best possible way. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing.)

"Like It Like" uses the Beat Bop beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a stickered sleeve. Label is stained, with some stuck-on paper.)

Wayne & CharlieCheck It Out (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint- ... $2.99
One of the more obscure Sugarhill numbers – featuring Wayne and Charlie, who's billed here as "the rapping dummy". And sure, a hip hop record that includes a ventriloquist act is not only a bit unhip, but also a bit daft – as it really doesn't matter who's the ventriloquist and who's the dummy if you can't see the act! However, the cut's got a great jazzy groove – very much in an old school party jam mode, with a strong "Heartbeat" kind of beat in the background. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Sugar Hill sleeve.)
