Tonight London is in throwback mode to the fullest! First up We’ll be checking out hip-hop hall-of-famers– EPMD along with DJ Scratch at the HMV forum, trust us, everyone is coming out the woodwork for this one! – Then to keep things firmly in throwback mode we’ll be down at one of our favourite venues – The Camp for the legendary ‘Classic Material’ where our very own DJ Superix will be spinning along side Chris Read, DJ Nickname and one of our favourite DJ’s, the mighty Mr Thing for an exclusive night of hip hop music only from 1990 – and trust us – the hits from that year alone are enough to easily fill 2 nights of partying!
CHECK OUT THE 1990 MIX HERE and hear Chris Read breaking down the year 1990 perfectly below:
‘Edition #4 of our monthly Classic Material series pays tribute to the hip hop of 1990, a year when hip hop really spread its wings with a diverse range of new sounds breaking in all corners of the US and overseas. 1990 is probably most celebrated as being the birth of the ‘afro-centric’ era, with debut albums from X-Clan, Professor X, Poor Righteous Teachers, Tribe Called Quest and many others hitting the stores during the year. But 1990 was also an important year for the artists from the opposite end of the spectrum: Compton’s Most Wanted, Capital Punishment Organisation and Above The Law all released debut albums proving LA had more to offer than just NWA. Aside from new developments, established artists including LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and EPMD all dropped certified classics.’
