hold tight!

If anyone's even out there listening/watching (?) - I've got big tings lined up for this blogspot, but the tapes are super special and take extra time/care for the badbwoy processing technique ;) Plus its been awhile since I've had to deal with blogger template formatting and I'm getting annoyed with the simplest things like centering the bludclot banner.....

Please grab the Jazzy Jeff supatreats, as an appetizer for things to come shortly!

I'm going to try and get the formatting sorted as well as a couple DC/Bmore supajointz just to make a good impression.

and plz if you got mixtape fiends who love grimey ruffneck 1993-96 bizness, let em know about that mixtape crack.

DJ Jazzy Jeff - Block Party mixes [Capital Radio UK 1993]

These were recorded on cassette straight off the FM signal in London sometime around 1993/94. These mixes are some of the most valuable out of all my collection; recorded mixtape-style with a little intro at the beginning (he shouts out DC Crew at start of 35 min. mix - I guess that's me?) and then awesome ruffneck dancehall and hip hop selections. Very much captures the essence of 93/94 hip hop and urban FM in places like NYC, DC and London... enjoy

The official Mixtape Crack blogspot is in effect.

Yo this is the new spot for select mixtape rips from collections of a handful of close friends and also from my own personal collection. There's no particular format - just whatever's dope and these first few posts will consist of rips from tapes that had the most impact on me growing up in the DC area during the early/mid-90s.

That said, expect some rare-ish Go Go PA tapes that I've ripped... as well as some extremely rare tape tape rips of Baltimore's now-defunct V103 [102.7 FM]. Those are mostly hip-hop and early bmore club from DJs who were considered part of the core body of individuals responsible for the sound of baltimore club music. Heat. You definitely won't find these ANYWHERE else. Unless it came from me first and they're frontin.

That said, please do enjoy the fruits of my labor and if that means spreading the oldschool sound of DC and Baltimore throughout the world, then my job here is done. This was a great place to grow up, and the area is rich in culture that is widely undocumented. The radio culture of the late 80s and early 90s was especially exciting - with even the top two Urban FM stations (WPGC and WKYS) contributing with DJ mix shows at least a few times a week at night that were just killer. So this is my personal documentation of that magical era.

One more thing....
I've been literally scouring the internet for years, searching for any recorded material from WPGC's AM sister-station which was 1580 AM (THE FLAVA). I stumbled upon it completely by accident one day in high school - messing with the clock radio in our kitchen. After that day - the clock radio STAYED on AM 1580, much to the annoyance of my mother. It was a Gospel station during the weekdays, but they would switch over to THE FLAVA afterdark - and they had absolutely the BEST programming imaginable. No R&B; strictly ruffneck dancehall, hip hop and Go Go. Some of the areas most respected Urban DJs from KYS and WPGC got their start on THE FLAVA so I'm amazed there's no tapes out there anywhere. I kinda have a gut feeling that tapes DO exist, so this is my opportunity to ask ANYONE OUT THERE who may have tapes from DC's FLAVA 1580 AM to PLEASE get in touch so I can make those permanent. Simply reply to this via Comment or in any post's Comment section with email or something and I'll get in touch immediately. I *WILL* pay money for Flava 1580 tapes. That shit is priceless.

That's all. Enjoy the beats.
