DJ Chuck Chill Out - Hip Hop On Wax Volume 1

It's 1984 and I'm in my mate's basement breakin' to a streetsounds electro tape, dunno which one but it could've been any one of 4 that were out at the time and in walks an 'acquaintance' shall we say, who's not really into the scene but knows some people and he stops the tape, pulls another out of his pocket and places that into the machine and presses play. We were obviously outraged and although he was a bit of a stocky individual but we had numbers so were about to lay into him (verbally) when this track came on. I had to just stand and listen, couldn't move, the thumping intro and then the 'dj chuck chill out, dj chuck chill out..wha, wha, whatcha gonna do' and the resulting cutting and scratching extravaganza just had me mesmerised for about 7 minutes and I knew I wanted, no needed that tape, (no chance of getting the wax, I was a kid and had no money). Needless to say it took me months to get it and it wasn't directly off of him, it was through numerous friends and by then the sound quality had deteriorated quite substantially but anything was better than nothing. It did take me a long time to acquire my own copy and I did have to settle for the re-issue in the end but it's the tune and the ability to hold the vinyl in my hands that I was after. To me the fact that I remember where I was the first time I heard it would indicate two things. One is how impressionable we were when we were young 'uns which is true for everyone I guess and the other is just how good this record and many others from this particular era were and still are today.

Man, I totally agree on that.

There's just way too many fools out there that can't grasp.

In fact, I was arguing with my best friend kate yesterday about this, and
they wouldn't believe me that he was wrong. Now I can just show them your blog :)
