DJ DS Goes Back to School (2nd Year: 1987)

Another tasty mix by DJ DS, this time focusing on 1987...

Unfortunately it’s the end of October half-term and that only means one thing…….. DJ DS Goes Back to School!

As I mentioned in my 1986 mix, I was at high school from 1986 – 1991, therefore my 2nd year covered in this mix is 1987. What a year too…. Getting this down to 35 tracks (plus an intro & outro) was so tough. Hopefully your favourites from this year feature in the track list.

If you’ve heard any of my mixes you know what to expect, plenty of doubles, blends and all that good stuff. I’ve also popped some sound bites from movies released during the same year including Good Morning Vietnam, Predator, The Principal, and many more!!

On a way more important note:

If any of you are on Twitter and follow Hip Hop then you may know about my man Del Soulcondor and the ongoing fundraising campaign to support him through is battle with Cancer. Huge props to Tim for setting up the page. Please visit the Go Fund Me page for more information about Del and his horrible illness. In addition to the Go Fund Me, the amazing Greg Blackman has dropped 'Save The Wax', featuring Genesis Elijah & Bohze. The track is produced by DJ Moneyshot and all proceeds kindly being donated to Del’s Go Fund Me too.

Please, if you haven’t already, help out the effort to give Del a boost through this difficult time and help #SavetheWax!



 Obviously I have to co-sign the fundraising for Del, it's been a remarkable effort so far and great to see so many people pitching in, especially given how tough its been for a lot of us over the last few months. Del is a good dude and his record collection is crazy so it would be a shame if he had to start selling it off in such awful circumstances.
