Style Wars - The Original Movie Soundtrack



So I set myself a little project a while ago. It was to collate and produce the soundtrack of hip hop's best graf movie, Style Wars.
There was never an album released commercially at the time, or to my knowledge, ever.
So here we are then, tracks of brilliance for you available for the first time.

I've also put the Adobe press kit in the .rar file which came out at the time of the dvd release. Very interesting backstory if you haven't had the opportunity to read it yet.



1. Siegfried’s Rhine Journey and Funeral Music
2. 8th Wonder - The Sugarhill Gang
3. The Wanderer - Dion
4. Jam Hot - Johnny Dynell
5. Pump Me Up - Trouble Funk
6. The Message - Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five
7. Beat Bop - Rammelzee vs. K-Rob
8. Sing, Sing - Gaz
9. Give It Up or Turnit a Loose - James Brown
10. Rockin’ It - The Fearless Four
11. Rocket In The Pocket - Cerrone
12. Feel The New Heartbeat - The Treacherous Three

Yo Benzino my mellow, many thanks for this dope compilation, this for me is one to burn to CD and pump in the car or in my van on the way to work so I can recall all those sumptious moments that are burned into my sonscious after seeing this so many times from the first time I saw this on Channel 4 from my cousin's video in what, 1985.

A lot of thought and effort has clearly gone into this and you deffo get mad props!!! Respect Ben, another killer download.

I can't expand the file, it says the structure of the archive is damaged... i'm on mac osx

Aargh, you beat me to it... I needed just a couple of tunes to complete the whole set.

Good job here though, thought the web address voice over was a bit annoying... I listened to it while working (one earpiece), so only heard it over one track... does it appear more than once?

I think the addition of a few audio samples from the documentary would have made it perfect!

Ta very much.
