Yet Another Post On These Wild Style Wallets

Post # 3 about the Wild Style wallets.

So, I posted originally about some wallets with the classic WS graf logo back in May of this year, right?
They were only £6, remember?
Then a week later the guy selling them then puts them up to £20, yeah?

Well, turns out that after selling erm, zero wallets at this price he's now had a change of mind and put them back to the original price of of £5.99.

For today, at least.

Brotherhood EP

This is for DJ Diablo. It's The Brotherhood EP from 1991 as requested.

The tracklisting goes like this:

01  Intro
02  Descendants Of The Holocaust
03  Rips In The Fabric
04  Just A Manifestor
05  Drivin'

Download Link

If anyone is holding a copy of the Descendants Of The Holocaust REMIX as well then please let us know, too.

I want to send a massive shout to Marc aka Skyrock STS for blessing us with this. Please go and check out his music productions which are great slabs of instrumental funkiness and remixes. I'm really digging this one below with some very cool organ over a wicked drum break.

Also I want to send an almighty ABU shout to all the fam who offered to help with this. You know who you are and it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know how deep we roll. Respect.

Facebook Group Page Banner - DOPENESS

I know I've banged on about the ABU! Facebook Group previously but I wanted to show anyone not on FB what appeared on Friday.

Old school writer BANZAI has recently been picking up the cans again and proceeded to rock the digital style and came up with this funky-fresh, Wild Style-inspired banner. Indeed, he brought out the computer rock and this new banner is now pride of place whenever you visit the group.

Big props go out to Surrey's well-respected graf veteran for this which was entirely unexpected.

UK Rap Flood - Tap Now Turned Off

A while back I put up this post with links to downloads of a whole load of UK singles.
They weren't MY uploads and as I mentioned in the post, I FOUND them out there already floating around on the internet.
Most if not all of these links are now dead. I didn't bother to download any myself which was a pretty dumb move on my part I'll admit. However, recently there's been some interest in certain titles from the list so if anyone has the following up for grabs then please get in touch or post the link in the comments.

  • Outlaw Posse - Party / Outlaws In Effect
  • Ronin Inc - In The Mix
  • Cut 2 Kill - Jus' Coolin'

Also I had an email from a founding member of The Brotherhood (previously Son Of Funk), DJ Diablo who is desperately after an mp3 of the Descendants Of The Holocaust EP and the Desecendants remix single that came out shortly after.
Am I the only one thinking of the old JR Hartley Yellow Pages ad...?

If you can help out then please, please get in touch.

Poppin On St Elsewhere

Lockin' in the Waiting Room

I can't ever remember watching this early 80's series when it was shown here in the UK on Channel 4 although I knew it had a few stars in the making such as David Morse (The Green Mile, The Langoliers), Howie Mandel (voice of Gizmo in Gremlins!), William Daniels (voice of KITT from Knight Rider!) and of course, Denzel Washington.

Check out this first scene once the main credits have run. What version of Beatbox is that? It sounds like there's an added sample of 'pump, pump, pump' from Original Concept in there.

Props to Dez Clarke for spotting this on The Chrome Angelz Facebook group page.

Can't embed so go straight to the source. Apologies for those damn ads.

I had another guest appearance on DJ Just-1's weekly radio show yesterday evening and played a bunch of 90's hip hop, Electro and funk for an hour.

The download is below and is very recommended - not just for my tunes - as Just-1 brought along some really great 12"s, rarities and just good music. My pick of the bunch was the Tat Money-produced Ebony Broadcast System - Just Made Da Mutha F_ka Up with it's riff of Run DMC's Here We Go - devastatingly fresh, I thought.

Lunchroom Battles - Old School Freestyles

This Soundcloud audio has only been out for one day but seems to be blazing the internets everywhere.
Entitled 'Lunchroom Battles "Desperately seeking Vanessa"', it's a tape of freestyles that took place in hip hop's history all interspersed with newer skits as well as odes to DJ Roc Raida (RIP).

Expect routines from Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, The Juice Crew Allstars, Stetsasonic and Run DMC amongst others. Also a very rare audio of Nas and Akinyele speaking their rhymes Live At The BBQ over the UFO break. Dynamite.
You may have heard of that legendary routine between Busy Bee and Kool Moe Dee and here it is in full. Who won? Listen for yourself.
Who else loves La-Di-Da-Di as much as I do? Well here are Doug and Rick giving us a live version but with added dirty lyrics about the ex-Miss America winner and songstress, Vanessa Williams.

The standout for me is a brief freestyle from Fab 5 Freddy using Sucker MC's. Nice, raw hip hop at it's finest. 

To be fair if you've got Rap Archives Legends in your collection then a good percent of what's here is on that cd already.

You can listen to it here:

UK Originals - Mighty Ethnicz

It's da Style Warrior, y'all
There's two reasons why I'm posting about the above group.
The first is that I need remind you that there are only SEVEN more days for you to purchase your special edition Mighty Ethnicz tee from the supreme UK-flavoured garment designer, Style Warrior.
As you should already know, LG takes a legendary British hip hop logo and puts his own spin on it and manufactures only the best quality garments.
For all the details go straight to the source here.
But whatever you do, don't go to The Source - it's shit.

The second reason I'm talking about da Ethnicz is because I need to pick your collective brains.
I'm sure you're all familiar with their single 'Harmony Hall', yes? Well what I need to know is the break used on the track. If anyone knows then please let ME know as recently this got into my head via WARZ and to him via the Breaka Down boys. It's a familiar-sounding break and I'm sure some of the ABU! fam will know it. If not then yah-boo, it's in YOUR head now. Oooosh!

Check the video below and see if you can remind yourself what that break to the beat is.....

Disco Scratch Is Back!

The summer holidays are now officially over. Disco Scratch is ready and raring to go - and not before time, too. Our Thursdays can now have some routine to them which is a breath of fresh air as these past few weeks have been a free-for-all with no structure.

I'll let your host, Waxer, take the reigns:

Yes indeedy, after 6 weeks off, stressed out parenting B Boys & B Girls the world over have been inundating the Desk Of Villainy with millions of requests asking when the show is back… I have lost count of the amount of pairs of knickers I have had posted to me in attempt to get me back on air… countless presents left at my door, like Neo in The Matrix
Well, your dreams have been answered, tonight at 9PM GMT, myself & probably both the Normans will be darkening your ears with another 2 hours of tuneage & banter to bring order to your worlds of school-runs, making packed lunches, ironing uniforms & finding out once they’re at school you’ve left the tags on etc, etc…
Join us all tonight as we welcome in the new season on Disco Scratch at 9PM GMT, see you in the chatroom:

So that's 9pm tonight at http://discoscratch.co.uk/radio/
And of course it goes without saying that we hope that there is a large percentage of Street Sounds-related tracks played tonight as ABU! is on Morgan's crotch. Well, aren't we?

The Pioneers Hip Hop Show - TONITE!

Design courtesy Mr Krum 2012

Okay boys and girls, it's the FIRST Tuesday of the month so you know what that means....?

Whirlwind D of Solid N Mind is at the controls for 2 hours of juicy, good-time, hippity-hoppity music over at Guildford's Kane FM studios tonight at 7pm.

Tonight the emphasis is on 1991 and you don't need me to tell you how funkay-fresh that year was, do you? Actually I think I must have had Cypress Hill's debut album on full-rotation for most of the time as that was one of my favourite albums at the time.
Oh yes, cassette rocking it's way on my Sony Walkman (I think it was this one or at least one similar) as I walked the 30 minutes to work and back each day. I used to have a lot of tapes on rotation back then and because it was tape it was easier to just listen from start to finish rather than fart around fast-forwarding past lesser-liked tracks.
Ahh, the days of listening to a full-length album....

Anyway, yes, also on the Pioneers Hip Hop Show tonight you'll hear the Old School Chart and a prize giveaway of the Good People EP courtesy of Diggers With Gratitude.

Not to be missed. 
Check the Kane FM website at 7pm.

p.s. Fingers crossed that some Streetsounds stuff gets played as well because I know how much you ABU! readers love Mr Khan.

Some FULL-LENGTH Movies - Youtube List #1

I don't know if it's because I'm just late to the party or what but I've noticed in recent months that Youtube seems to have relaxed it's policy of restricting videos to longer than it's 10-minute limits.

And actually there are some real nuggets available to watch now. Everything from new-ish horror flicks to Grindhouse (and it's sub-genres of exploitation loveliness) and early 90's 'hood films.

I'm a fan of 1970's cinema myself, amongst others, and have found some stuff that I've only previously read about so this is a bonus for me.
I've compiled a brief list of what's out there to watch but be warned that you never know if any one of these will be around for long so if you see something, go and grab it while you can.

No doubt I'll put up another list in the near future. However if you see something you want to shout about let us know as I'm always interested to see vintage films in their un-PC, sample-worthy goodness.


The Brother From Another Planet (1984) - Bit of an 'art film'.

Wild Style (1982) - You KNOW it.

Beat Street (1984) - Eat yo eggs.......

Breakin (1984) - THAT broomstick scene.

Breakin' N Enterin' - Full Movie Version (1983) - The movie that 'Breakin'' was loosely-based on.

The Last Dragon (1985) - Part hip hop, part Martial Arts. The main character is named Bruce Leroy. WATCH THIS.

No Retreat, No Surrender (1986) - Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and dripping with cheese. A sub-Karate Kid but still great.

Eddie Murphy - Raw (1987) - Filth flarn filth.

Original Gangstas (1996) - Starring the original stars of many Blaxploitation flicks.

Maximum Overdrive (1986) - Cheesy and bad. Brilliant adaptation of a Stephen King short story.

House (1986) - "NORM!!"

Prince of Darkness (1987) - John Carpenter directed chiller. DJ Shadow fans take note.

The Big Bird Cage (1972) - And a sequel of sorts.

Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS (1975) - Nazi-spoitation.
