Whether you remember these joints from the glory days of the Paradise or Bam's parties at the Bronx River Projects or are discovering them for the first time, these classic electro/hip hop/breakin'/dance tracks are a must-have for any DJ's crates. On this, the last volume in the series, they also include some jazz/soul tracks that formed the basis of early hip hop. Includes: Jonzun Crew "Pack Jam", Cybotron "Clear", Newcleus "Automan", C-Bank "One More Shot", Quadrant Six "Body Mechanic", Area Code 615 "Stone Fox Chase", James Brown "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", Blackbyrds "Rock Creek Park", Lonnie Liston Smith "Expansions", Jimmy Castor Bunch "It's Just Begun", Candido "Jingo", Barrabas "Woman", Eddie Kendricks "Date With The Rain", Herman Kelly + Life "Dance To The Drummers Beat", and Afrika Bambaataa "Looking For The Perfect Beat".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

The Definitive Jux sound, if there is one, gets less and less definitive all the time – and C-Rayz takes it places we haven't yet heard from the label – with guest spots by MF Doom, J-Treds, Vast Aire, Wordsworth, Thristin Howl III and others. Rayz utilizes a bevy of producers; Belief, ... CD

A jazz-inspired hip hop uberclassic! While Digable Planets might not have pioneered the jazzy hip hop vibe – we mightnod to the Native Tongues scene and DJ Premier's productions in the late 80s for that – Digables set a new standard with breezy but head nodding production and mellow, ... CD

Irma (Italy), 1999. Used
Hard to believe that acid jazz has been around so long that there's a series of "classics" – but it's true, and this set's filled with a lot of nice cuts from the "old days" that are now out of print. Rather than just acid jazz, the set's kind of a mix of acid jazz and ... CD
