Tropical Heat Podcast: Raggamuffin Rap and Rap Classics

posted on February 25th, 2010 by in Audio, Tropical Heat

In today’s edition of the Tropical Heat podcast, King Kong Disko a.k.a. The Notorious A.P.E. present two hours of Raggamuffin Rap and Rap Classics. Here’s what they go to say about their mix:

In the first half of the show, we deliver a mix of 90′s raggahiphop tracks. No cheap American refixes of Dancehall standards but original combination tunes of like-minded MCs and deejays. Many of them slept-ons taken from albums which you won’t normally hear at your regular Dancehall or HipHop parties.

In the second half, we’re turning back the hands of time even a little more and have a look at the 80′s rap scene. That Dancehall and Hip Hop have become what they are today is due to legendary labels like Def Jam, Tommy Boy, profile, or Jive, amongst others.

Those of you who are into sample digging should really have some fun with this one – enjoy!
