✨✧ Jeff ChangCan't Stop Won't Stop – A History Of The Hip-Hop Generation (paperback) ... Book
Ebury Press (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $8.99 19.95
Jeff Chang's epic history of the cultural force of hip hop – one of the most acclaimed hip hop chronicles ever published – and well worth it! Chang has dug deeper for this book than any crate diggin' DJ ever could, and for that he deserves to take a deep bow. The book starts out documenting some of the game's roots in 60s Jamaica, and goes on to chronicle its genesis in the Bronx, and its many incarnations up until the the turn of the century. The cultural, political and social environments and eras in which the art was nurtured is chronicled by Chang without ever causing the reader to suffer from NPR-esque academic dryness (thank God), and really puts the reader into every tale he spins. IT's such a sprawling book that it's tough to recommend or describe in just a few words, but trust us, your library needs it! Paperback, 546 pages including notes, acknowledgments and index, well chosen quotes and photos, plus an introduction by legendary DJ Kool Herc! Book

L'Orange & Kool KeithTime? Astonishing! (with bonus track) ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Rising talent L'Orange, an increasingly impressive producer who clearly has a love for the sci fi sample stoked hip hop of the 90s, scores a hella appropriate lead MC in Kool Keith – and sure enough, it's the best KK project we've spun quite a few years! L'Orange wisely pays homage to style of classic 75 Ark and early Stones Throw hip hop without copying anyone, and Keith is in fine form – with a flow that's more measured than manic. Guests include J-Live, Mr. Lif, Blu and others. Includes "Time? Astonishing!", "The Traveler" feat J-Live, "The Green Ray", "Twentty Fifty Three", "The Wanderer", "This New World" feat Blu, Montage One & DJ Trackstar, "Dr. BiPolar", "Upwards. To Space!", "Days I Used To Know" and more. Also includes the bonus track "Sometimes I Feel". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Monthly #1 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The comic series that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scenes with colorful comic-style images. The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing! Issue #1 features the adventures of DJ Kool Herc, with appearances by Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa and more! Book

✨✧ VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.
