Cut Master D.C. - Santa's Beat Box

I wanted to be able to scratch like the Cut Master real bad. I would say he was the first major influence on me as far as scratching goes but if I'm honest I never quite got it the style I was looking for before I gave up in the early nineties. Listen to track 3 at around 2:08 and tell me that doesn't still sound dope today. Happy Christmas readers.

Def Defiance - Rhyme Children/Chemical Attack

Bought myself one of these last week and it's dope. Limited press 7" single on nuclear green vinyl with colour picture sleeve. You know you want one so get one here:
B-Line Recordings is fast becoming my favourite label, only missed this one so if there's any left I'd like a copy please.

Cut Master D.C. - The Night Before Christmas

Well, it's almost here and I've resisted for a few years now but here's a fresh 320kbps rip of one of the Cut Master's better releases. The absolutely bangin' drums on this one still do it for me every time I hear it.
Part two of TTBOD does Christmas next week..

Aleem - Release Yourself

Another classic from the NIA label and Streetsounds Electro 5 which still sounds fresh today. I never actually owned Electro 5 until years after it was released but I recorded a copy off a mate, ('Home taping is killing music' - sorry Morgan but we all did it) a few days after he bought it in '84 and that particular mate at that particular time thought this was the best record he'd ever heard. I disagreed as 'The Buck Stops Here' and 'B-Boys Breakdance' were harder sounding what with me being a b-boy and all but I still bought a copy as it is an astoundingly good record.
p.s. I'm currently ripping a couple of Cutmaster DC Christmas tunes so get ready..
