This next tape is from the Stetsasonic 3 MCs (later known as Stetsasonic) with Wise, the Human Mix Machine and on the turntables Prince Paul. No jazzy influences yet, but classic stuff! Not sure about the date but i think it's from 1984.

Tribute to Malcolm Mclaren (RIP)

Malcolm Mclaren died yesterday at the age of 64. I uploaded some material as a tribute to the man who had a major role in the globalization of hip hop.

Buffalo Gals was one of a kind and when i bought Duck Rock and Would Ya Like More Scratchin in the early 80's i couldn't stop playing them. And IMO that last album still has a unique sound after more then 25 years (of course also thanx to the World Famous Supreme Team and Trevor Horn)

And you know i love that artwork from Keith Haring: check my avatar :-)

Mclaren talking about his introduction to hip hop (from baffalo gals, back to school)

Mike Allen @ Capital Radio: Easter Weekend 1986

I'm not sure if most western countries also have a second 'easter day' (or easter monday), but i'm enjoying it :-)
I thought it would be nice to share this Mike Allen Easter Weekend tape from 1986. It's short but with jingles (i love that Margret Thatcher one) and commercials.
