Flush 5

October 17, 2018 – 6:06 pm

Flush had a series of tapes recorded in the mid-80s labeled simply with a number. This one is number 5 in that set. It’s a very short one, at only 10 minutes per side.

Most of these recordings likely came from Power 99 or WDAS in Philly and feature early hip-hop.

Flush 4

October 17, 2018 – 3:53 pm

Flush had a series of tapes recorded in the mid-80s labeled simply with a number. This one is number 4 in that set. It’s a short one, at only about 25 minutes total. Side A features some nice blends (courtesy of Jeff Mills, I believe) with “Dance to the Drummer’s Beat,” “Jamonit,” and other assorted breaks and samples. Side B keeps it going with all sorts of electro and early hip-hop tracks, including “Rockit,” coming in and out of the mix.

Most of these recordings likely came from Power 99 or WDAS in Philly and feature early hip-hop.

Flush 3

Flush had a series of tapes recorded in the mid-80s labeled simply with a number. This one is number 3 in that set. This one features a super ill set where the legendary DJ Cash Money cuts up “The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash” on Lady B’s Power 99 show. This is a great one all the way through.

Most of these recordings likely came from Power 99 or WDAS in Philly and feature early hip-hop.

Sounds of the Underground: June 11, 1998

May 24, 2018 – 11:34 pm

This is an interesting recording, given that it comes five years after my last recording of WPRB. After graduating college, I came home and was sitting in my room one afternoon and on a whim, flipped the dial to 103.3. I was surprised to not only hear house music, but to hear Club Krush/Raw Deal’s former host Eazy M on the air. By this point, he was going just by DJ Marc Coleman and spinning strictly electronic music (with a focus on house, club, and trance). I remember calling him up to say hi and reminisce on the phone a bit about Raw Deal.

It’s only 45 minutes, but still a good listen as Marc was probably the only person in the area spinning drive time trance.

I estimate this to be June 11th because it’s a Thursday and though it’s not officially summer, he refers to it as “the first show of the summer” and makes reference to an event coming up on the 14th. It’s also definitely 1998 based on the music he plays.
