Pop Art, 1986. Very Good ... $0.99
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

Alston/TK, 1978. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Classic early breakdance/breakbeat material! "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" was real stormer in the South Bronx back in the day, and a great bit of uptempo funk with congas – the break and chorus are both great, and the single's like finding a page in the history of hip hop book! The LP's tough to come by, and although we do see the track on 45, we've hardly ever seen this 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tartown/Get On Down, 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Around November 28, 2014
Reissue of the amazing, and previously impossible to find, track produced by Jean Michel Basquiat. Originally released in 1983, the deep, laid-back production and vocals were years ahead of what anyone else was doing at that time. This reissue features the original 10+ minute version and instrumental and the hard to get cover art, white on black drawings on the front and back, done by Basquiat. (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, 11/29/14.

New WhispersAnd The Beat Goes On/It's A Love Thing ... 12-inch
Solar/Sequel (UK), 1979/1980/2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Probably one of the biggest dancefloor tracks from The Whispers – "Beat Goes On" has the group grooving to a sweet modern sound with a sweet LA soul sound. The cut's a real stormer, with a hook that just won't quit, and it was proof that the group were ready to keep on growing into the 80s. "It's A Love Thing" is similar, although down a few notches – but with a nice 80s groove approach. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Shadow's first single off his second LP, and believe it or not, it's as much of a pop/rock record as the UNKLE LP was! We're not complaining though, because this one's got a great new wave twist to it, and on the third track of this single, Shadow's back in battle mode, with vocal cut-ups over a slower beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Original UK pressing of this seminal Eric B & Rakim cut, a 12" you don't see too often around here, or much anywhere we'd bet! Features two UK remixes, the first by the Democratic 3 featuring DJ Slack, that to our ears, is not much more than an extended version of the original, but the version worth checking for is the Wild Bunch's remix, featuring the Bristol crew cutting in some extra breaks here and there to give the track a new twist. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New MC ShanBeat Biter (extended mix, radio mix)/The Bridge/Dub Biter ... 12-inch
Bridge, 1986. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
"Beat Biter" is MC Shan's classic cut (never before reissued) 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. And then there's the b-side... If you 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. (MC Poet later became a member of Screwball.) And you thought the Jay Z/Nas/Mobb Deep/etc. battles went on too long! All the hip hop history contained on these tracks and all that trivia aside, the record is still up there as one of our favorites from the class of '85. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Clipse FINALLY got something on record in '05 – a good 3 years after they broke huge with the Lord Willin' LP! We're guessin' that label woes are the culprit for the gap, but whatever the case may be, they've brought their superstar producer friends on board for this single on the strictly underground Re-Up label! Pharrell guests on the percolating "Studyin' Y'all", with barebones Neptunes production. Timbaland brings his chunky beat production finesse to "Re Up Anthem". The "Queen B*tch" freestyle closes it out. 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

There's a funky beat to this one that's a bit Go-Go oriented – much more big beat and pop sounding than some of the group's other work from the time, almost in a Jimmy Jam kind of mode. That's kind of corrected on the house mix, though. 12-inch, Vinyl record

"Vacant Rhymes" thankfully doesn't live up to the title – it's actually a tight single, both lyrically and on the beat, with guest vocals by Dave from De La Soul and Modill MC Racecar!

Oneness Of JujuEvery Way But Loose/(Family Tree) Make A Change ... 12-inch
Sutra, 1981. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Although Oneness Of Juju are best known around here for their avant funky spiritual jazz albums from the mid 70's, they're really best known in clubland for the a-side of this single, "Every Way But Loose". The track still retains some of their afro jazz elements, but it's got a heavy dancefloor beat over a nice rolling bassline, like some of Cymande's snapping tracks that crossed over into the club scene! The b-side's a more mellow affair, another more commercial number than their earlier afro jazz funk material, but keeping enough of that approach to remind you who's behind the track. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Sutra sleeve.)

Redds & The BoysMovin' & Groovin' (long, short vocal, special dub mix) ... 12-inch
TTED, 1985. Very Good+ ... $0.99
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.)

Banquet of Sarcasm has that noisy distorted underground sound, but with a little more energy and a little less abstract/off-beat vocals. Mr. Complex and D-Story of the Arsonists are featured on Three Men In A Bar. 12-inch, Vinyl record

WhatnautsHelp Is On The Way (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Harlem International, 1981. Very Good ... $7.99
An obscure later tune by The Whatnauts – issued years after their classics for All-Platinum in the early 70s – but proof that the group is always great, no matter what the setting! This tune's got a mean mean boogie groove – and was sampled to great fame by De La Soul in "Ring Ring Ring", but stands beautifully on is own. There's a rollerskating bounce to the track that's completely sublime – and the tune steps on and on and on without missing a beat! Not on any LP, either! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wildchild feat Percee P & MedaphoarKnicknack 2002 (voc, inst)/Kiana (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2002. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
If it looks like a Lootpack, smells like a Lootpack and sounds like a Lootpack, why isn't it a Lootpack? They bust up and then Wildchild drops a single with Madlib producing and Romes on the cut, with his on-top-of-the-beat hectic rhyme style, not quite as abstract as he's been in the past, joined on the A-side by Percee P and Medaphoar. Oh No produces the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has some wear.)

Jazz Liberatorz w/ J Live & AsheruVacation (main, inst)/Crazy MF/I Am Hip Hop (main, inst)/Wink End ... 12-inch
Kif (France), 2009. New Copy (pic cover)... Around November 1, 2014
Fresh jazz funk beats from the Jazz Liberators – and top notch rhymes from the guests! "Vacation" with J-Live has the breezy groove you might expect from the title, but J Live's rhymes are all business. "Crazy MF" is actually pretty laidback, while "I Am Hip Hop" with Asheru is laidback, funky hip jam – Asheru rhymes with a hushed tone, but forthright lyricism, with easy going keys, some funky flute in the mix, a really kind of an unpredictable beat mirrored nicely by the bass. "Wink End" is a jazzy funk instrumental with some of the sweet, Jazz Lib piano! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jazzy hip hop funk beats from the Jazz Liberatorz! "Genius At Work" features Fat Lip & T-Love – with a funky beat, and some really nice bits of keys standing out from the beats and the bass. "When The Clock Ticks" features J Sands. The 12-inch also includes the short, jazzy funk instros "Cut The Jazz" and "Really I Need A Profit", plus the instrumental versions of "Genius At Work" and "When The Clock Ticks". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kif (France), 2008. New Copy (pic cover)... Around November 1, 2014
A mix of jazzy hip hop funk beats & keys, laidback hip hop, and cosmic soul! "U Do" is some soul jazz keys floating over the bass and beat, and some easygoing rhymes from Stacy Epps. "Indonesia" features Tableek from Maspyke – and as the kind of lightly tripped out funky production that feels fresh from Detroit to Cali, and it's pretty much a straight up ode to fresh hip hop. "Sandaga" is a shorter instrumental with a kicked up tempo and looped keys. "Music In My Mind (Part 2)" blends boom bop and 70s soul cinema style with jazzy texture – a wide ranging groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rawkus, 1999. Near Mint- (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Two more nice ones from the Soundbombing II project. Mos Def and Mad Skills join High & Mighty for "B-Boy Document '99." The production is tight with a rare combination of a sound that could work in the clubs and still be true to the underground, complete with a nice chorus by Mos Def using the "Flash was on the beat box... " melody. Bahadiah and Talib Kweli combine on "Chaos" – we've been feeling just about every track Bahamadiah has been on since leaving the major labels, and this one is no exception. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tear Da Club Up ThugsPush 'Em Off (clean, album, inst w/hooks, acapella)/Hell Naw ... 12-inch
Hypnotize Minds/Relativity, 1999. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Two rowdy, rowdy cuts from this Three 6 Mafia off-shoot with DJ Paul, Juicy J, and Lord Infamous. Their name is derived from an earlier 3-6 hit "Tear Da Club Up", and that's pretty much what they're all about. "Push 'Em Off" is a violent, up-tempo riot starter that follows the classic Memphis formula for getting buck. "Hell Naw" is some crazy misogynistic raps that'll make you blush over a screwed-up Bambataa beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

The one-and-only Brand Nubes crew, back together for '04. "Who Wanna Be A Star" has a geniunely strong melodic beat track – with rhymes that ruefully recall the daze of the spotlight. "Just Don't Learn" takes the string-laden soul approach to the beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Both tracks with dope production, as we've come to expect, from the Alchemist. "Dead End Street" has a spare sound with slightly off-center beat under a nice dissonant piano bassline, and straight-ahead hardcore rhymes.

A nice selection of trio of tracks from Daily Plannet duo – featuring guest appearances by El Da Sensai and & Theaster on the Dug Infinite produced "Triple Beam", and Wildchild of Lootpack on "Soul She Feel"! "Triple Beam" has a great horn line on the beat that you'll be hearing, and feeling, all day. The Madd Crates-produced "Soul She Feel" is fine, too, with a great Bollywood-esque femake vocal sample. 12-inch, Vinyl record
