Into The Groove

Hello, the weekend is coming up so we go Into the groove; R & B, Disco, Funk & Old School Hip Hop, as it happens most of my R & B, Disco, Funk is on vinyl, and i have no time at the moment to rip these, too busy re-uploading (past Japan now) . That said i do have a lot of old school rap/hip hop on cd so expect these first weeks more of that.
To the outside world rap started with Rappers Delight,, a 14 min marathon that got every hip moving. It opened up the way for generations of rappers to come, how ? Well it was clear there was money to be made with it. There were messages to be spread and there were dancefloors to be filled after disco had been cloned to death by the industry. On the other side , the new portable music gizmo's asked for street music,. With cheap samplers guys like Schooly D could free style with beats and sounds, rapping about the life around him, full of violence, drugs , bravado and making music. Some great tracks there

Genius Of Rap, The Sugarhill Story ( 87 * 133mb)

Sugar Hill Records was the name of a rap music record label that was founded by husband and wife Joe and Sylvia Robinson with financial funding of Morris Levy, the owner of Roulette Records.The label's first record was "Rapper's Delight" (1979) by The Sugarhill Gang. This pioneering group inaugurated the history of recorded hip-hop with their multi-platinum seller and radio hit in 1979. The group was created to profit on a supposed novelty item. New Jersey-based producer and indie label owner Sylvia Robinson had become aware of the massive hip-hop block parties occurring around the New York City area during the late '70s, so she gathered three locals from her town: Guy O'Brien, who was the original Master Gee; another local rapper, Michael Wright, who called himself Wonder Mike, and non-rapper Big Bank Hank. The vocalists were then teamed up with three session musicians, including future Living Color/On U bassist Doug Wimbish. Together, they recorded all of the Sugarhill Gang’s work. Afterwards The Sequence, Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel joined the label. Sugar Hill's in-house producer and arranger was Clifton "Jiggs" Chase.

In the early 1980s, the Robinsons bought Levy out. However, problems started soon afterwards. Artists began to leave the label, a distribution deal with MCA Records fell through, and finally the label closed down in 1986 due to financial troubles.In 1995, Rhino Records purchased all the released and unreleased masters owned by the Sugar Hill label.

Schoolly D - The Adventures Of Schoolly-D (87 * 118 mb)

Schoolly D is the moniker of American rapper Jesse B. Weaver. He was a pioneer of Hardcore rap and the pioneer of Gangsta Rap, being one of the first rappers to embrace an antisocial persona without explicit irony. The first record that came out along those lines was Schoolly D's "P.S.K." Musically, Schoolly D and his DJ Code Money came up with electronic hardcore beats. Long before the debate about gangsta rap lyrics became an easy way to get national newsprint, there was outrage over Schoolly D's explicit and undiluted narratives on inner city strife. Saturday Night in 1987 and Smoke Some Kill in 1988 had city officials openly endorsing removal of the albums from record stores.Later on, Schoolly embraced the afrocentric style, working together with KRS-One. He too contributed songs and music to many Abel Ferrara films He has continued in the same vein with 1993's Am I Black Enough for You and 1996's Gangster's Story. His career got a bit of a boost after the Chemical Brothers sampled him on their 1997 Dig Your Own Hole album, creating a bit of interest in a rapper few of the late '90s youth were familiar with. The Adventures Of Schoolly-D is a Japan 'only' sampler of his work up to 87, 12 "and his first to albums Achoolly D and Saturdaynight-the Album hardcore beats with a minimalistic touch (poorly lit alleys atmosphere)
