Chrome & Ill Inspired - You Should Know!

I bought myself one of these last week and I don't mind saying it's real hip hop done properly. Available from here and here and also from this guy. Very nice.

Divine Sounds - Do Or Die Bed Sty

I fuckin' love this record. I traded something for it back in '86, can't remember what but I've had it ever since. I haven't seen the guy I got it from for over 20 years now but I do remember he had it spinning when I walked in to his room and asking him what it was and him replying, 'why, do you like it?'. I obviously replied in the affirmative and I walked away with it that same day. He always preferred the uptempo miami bass stuff so that's maybe why he gave it up so quickly. He'd trade all sorts and the only slow tempo record I remember him liking was Double Duce's 'School Breakdown' which he described as 'magic' but I still got that one off him. And he went to London for that. Now all he plays, I'm told, is house music. Sucker.

CD III - Success

I remember a mate of mine at the time singing the 'buying closets full of leather jeans' line to me while we stood at the hip hop rack in the record shop 'diggin' as you'd call it nowadays in an attempt to jog my memory and I couldn't remember this tune for the life of me. Until I got it home and played it of course and was most pleased. I think this can go down as my favourite CD III tune with 'And You Know That' coming a very close second. One of the best electro tunes of the year in my opinion and also Hitman Howie Tee's first group in case you didn't know although on here he hadn't taken on the 'hitman' moniker just yet and he's referred to as 'DJ H.T.'

Awesome Foursome - Funky Breakdown

I replied to a comment a while back now and mentioned hearing this blasting out from someone's back garden while we were playing football on the field next to the scout hut near where I lived and I just stopped playing and listened and wanted it pretty badly. So I got one.
