CD III - And You Know That

My second fave CD III track and once again it's a b-side jam. This is the Canadian release and as you can see, they spelled the crew's name wrong. The a-side, 'Summer Jam' is ok but forgettable and has never really had a regular spot on the mp3 playing device. Still, this is a memorable one from a tape I had in my mid teens and I like it a lot.

MC Craig G - Shout

Massive beats were a big thing for me in '85, still are, and I reckon this is one of the biggest beats ever made. Still one of my all time faves, a little worn these days as I've had it some years now but heavy as hell on the eardrums. Nottingham old school legend Masterscratch used this on loads of his mixtapes, particularly the 'Def Mix' on the flip. I cannot for the life of me remember who I got all my Masterscratch tapes from but I had about 5 in total and to me they were priceless as there weren't too many scratch djs around who were doing their own tapes and were actually any good. A possible point of interest is the production credit which is down to 'Double M Eye' which I would bet is one of Marley Marl's aliases but I'm unsure so maybe someone in the know could confirm that for me. Killer tune.
