About the show

Playing tracks by

Group Home, Lord Finesse & Dj Mike Smooth, KRS One, Redman, Keith Murray and more.

From KRS-One to Brand Nubian, from Mad Skillz to Mobb Deep, 1990-1996 was a boom time for hip-hop, with producers ripping up old funk and jazz records and looping them together as a new generation of MCs bust out to become household names.

Raf Daddy from The 2 Bears was a hip-hop obsessive during that time, and 'The Nod Factor' is his love letter to the music and an era that continues to inspire to this day. It's been pieced together with his old friend Matt Stevens, who shared the music with him growing up.

Raf - "It's an expression of our love for the music from 1990 to 1995 when we were suburban hip-hop idiots! It's full of wicked party tunes, MCs in fine voice with great verse full of mad flow, sampling old funk and jazz breaks such as James Brown and George McCrae - it's heavy kick-snare boombap nod music! These were all massive favourites of mine growing up... and they still are..."

Wicked mix by Matt Stevens! What on earth is Armand Van Helden doing on there- a mistake I think. Overall a banging example of everything that was good about 90's Hip-Hop
