DJ Riz & DJ Eclipse - Halftime Show with Prince Paul (1998)

Riz & Eclipse on their WNYU show back in December 98. The show was an old school special so expect lots of 80s/early 90s material, plus Prince Paul is in the studio promoting his 'A Prince Among Thieves' album.


Thanks to MK for the tape

Flava Of The Month returns!

"DJ 279’s Friday Nite Flavas Rap Show is the longest running Rap Show in the UK boasting more than 15 years of transmitting continuous authentic Hip Hop on Choice FM London.
In 1993 DJ 279 launched Flava Of The Month, a monthly Hip Hop party @ The Borderline Club in Charing Cross Rd. The night provided a platform for numerous UK artists such as Fallacy, Blak Twang, Estelle, Skinnyman, MCD, David J, Scratch Perverts and Funky DL making it a must attend event for many years.
Flava Of The Month was also responsible for bringing Mad Skillz, Dead Prez, Big L, O.C, Canibus, DJ Cash Money, Tony Touch, Big L,
Big Daddy Kane and Master Ace to the UK, and those are just a few names on a very illustrious list.
Now Flava Of The Month is back to do it all over again...

What with MOP last week, and KRS and Rakim both having shows lined up it looks like there's gonna be alot going in London this autumn.

Early interview with Kool Herc

Some great footage in this. I'd never seen it before but came across it over at 4 Hours Of Funk

quick update...

Back off holiday. Shout out to everyone who made it over to SunceBeat in Croatia! I've had a lot of messages asking for re-ups on dead links so just to say that I'll get to them all eventually, hopefully within the next couple of days. Once they're out of the way it'll back to more of the usual. Stay tuned...

DJ Riz on Hot 97 Street Jams (1994)

Riz dropping a guest mix on Funkmaster Flex's 'Street Jams' show. I ripped this a while back but just realised I never posted it. I'd guess its from around September 1994, so you know its worth a listen

Thanks to DJ MK for the original tape.
