Flush 35

February 4, 2018 – 5:47 pm

Flush had a series of tapes recorded in the mid-80s labeled simply with a number. This one is number 34 in that set. Most of these recordings likely came from Power 99 or WDAS in Philly and feature early hip-hop and electro. I kind of love this one — there’s a female answer record to Schoolly D’s “P.S.K.” that I can’t figure out, a dope track from MC Chill, Mike Nice, Beatmaster T, and DJ Kid Finesse (is there a more 80s group of hip-hop names?), and some classic electro.

Bad Boys Fuck

Another tape of mid-80s hip-hop and electro recorded from Philadelphia radio (including Power 99’s Street Beat show) by DJ Flush.

Side B has a great Run-DMC drop for Power 99 where they rework a portion of “Here We Go.” Interestingly, I have this exact blend of the drop into “Here We Go” on a tape I made back when I was ten. Kind of funny to come across it on my cousin’s tape.
