The Mr Bongo Days - Tommy Koi & Skeg

Playing tracks by

Beyond There, DJ Shadow, Battle Break Deez Nuts, LG & Lopez, Onyx and more.

Chart positions

This show was 4th in the global beats chart and 26th in the global hip hop chart.

This show celebrates the Mr Bongo Era, when the shop in Soho was the best hip hop record shop in London and maybe Europe. Skeg is joined in the Disco Shed by Tommy Koi and they flick thru some of their favourite records from the Mr Bongo days. This is a snapshot of the independent hip hop golden era and we hope you enjoy!



Love the crackle at the beginning of In/Flux...sounds exactly like that on my copy ;-)

Great show - really enjoyed this. Halcyon days indeed, especially the Dilated Peoples instore. Thanks! :)


Tempted to post the pics of you & Babu!


Loved this show. And loved those Saturdays in Soho spent between Deal Real and Mr Bongo. Big up Huw, Tom and Kam...they even stocked my homespun mixtapes!

Hey Breakin Bread, Your Mixtape is very inspiring. What do you think about my mixtape? Could you give me some feedback?


I haven't heard a lot of these for yonks, a real nice time capsule! I'd love to have all this on wax but I only have a few (unless I have forgotten I own them, which is possible!)


Lovely memories about these days, bigup to all the Saturday afternoon waiting for the van crew!
