For this podcast David takes charge of proceedings. So over to him for more info
“For this podcast I initially wanted to do a Jazz themed one. However Euan suggested that it would be better to do something that i had less knowledge in. So, old school hip hop it was. Obviously i knew a little old school hip hop before doing this podcast, but it was mainly the likes of rappers delight, white lines, rockit etc and not much else.
I decided to focus on the years 79-85 and try and capture the various styles in that time. Those range from the very funky (Afrika Bamabatta) to the super mimimal (Roxanne & Run DMC), and to the more electro sounding (Hashim & Debbie Deb).
This mix was a lot of fun to make and I danced a lot while making it. I hope you enjoy it”
