Part 2 of the first month's 'Classic Material' mix series documents hip hop's progression through the years 1984 to 1987, an era in which hip hop’s prominent sound changed drastically with the increasing popularity of drum machine programmed beats and early sampling technology. This mix leans heavily toward sample based material from the latter part of that era so we’ve thrown an extra treat on the CD version – a bonus mix of electro rap and electro funk from the early to mid 80s.
