About the show
Chung King is a legendary recording studio in NYC.
In the 1980s they recorded a lot of DEF JAM stuff, and made a name for themselves as a "Hip Hop" recording studio.
Since then what was once "Chung King's House Of Metal", a small studio above a Chinese restaraunt, has built a reputation for churning out hits, and become a staple for recording artists of all genres.
A few weeks ago, a friend who works there and I were talking about the massive amount of classics recorded there, and we thought it would be cool to do a mix series highlighting their legacy. Where to begin? The Eighties.
The looped records, 808, and heavy bass on these records are closer to punk rock than any hip hop recorded these days. Turn it up loud and you can almost smell the egg fu young. This one is 80's cassette tape grimey.
