Celluloid, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Long before the KRS/Shan battles, D.ST. was claiming "Bronx is the home of hip hop" on this track. It almost has an early Whodini sound, with more MC'ing, vocoder effects, and a live rhythm section than his other dj oriented tracks like "Mega Mix 2." 12-inch, Vinyl record

Grand Mixer Cuts It Up (cut, uncut)
Celluloid, 1982. Near Mint- (pic cover)
The rhymes by the Infinity Rappers are only on the latter half of the "cut" version – but we dig the very electro production that quotes "Tubular Bells", some nice vocoder effects and a little scratching from D St – the "uncut" version is the instrumetnal. ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Celluloid, 1983. Near Mint-
One of the better Afrika Bambatta/Bill Laswell collaborations. The more bass-heavy funk side of the Zulu Nation sound with live horns and bass, a little Go Go influence, and a more chanting vocal style than straight ahead rhymes.. Produced by Afrika Bambaataa and Material, featuring Bill Laswell ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Message II (vocal, inst)
Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
Follow up the Grandmaster Flash classic. The best version here is the instrumental. A dope early 80's electro/breakdance track. The Melle Mel verses are nice enough, but the Duke Bootee lyrics are not quite up to the original. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Outhouse/Revenge, 1996. Near Mint- (pic cover)
West Coast abstract underground stylings from the Living Legends at their prime. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Def Jam, 1986. Very Good
A lost piece of hip hop and Go-Go history, with a slightly lower tempo for the groove, and nice clattering garbage pails in the percussion breaks. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jazzy Sensation (Bronx version, Manhattan version, inst)
Tommy Boy, Early 80s. Very Good
One of the classic early Tommy Boy twelves – with the great Gwen McCrae sample from "Funky Sensation", and an excellent performance by Bam and the Jazzy 5. The 5 handle rap duties on the "Bronx Version" a-side, with the slight smoother female approach to the vocal handled ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

West End, 1981. Very Good+
The old school classic, recorded around the same time as Tanya Gardner's "Heartbeat", for the same label, with that track as the basis to the whole groove. Very similar to the original, but with a rap track over the top. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bee Pee, 1983. Very Good
Early 80s rap, with vocoded/effected vocals, but over a track that's got more of a syncopated "Genius Of Love" type groove with a heavy big beat touch than a futuristic Newcleus electro sound. Still a nice bit of old school though. 12-inch, Vinyl record
