About the show

Playing tracks by

EPMD, Chill Rob G, CHRIS READ, MC Twist And The Def Squad, Biz Markie and more.

Edition #3 of our monthly Classic Material series pays tribute to the hip hop of 1989, another year in which the genre's dominant sounds changed drastically. As the James Brown influenced sound that had dominated the late 80s played out its final days, producers from all corners of the genre turned their attentions to sampling the bass heavy West Coast sound of Parliament, Funkadelic and Zapp. Acts such as De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers burst on to the scene injecting a light hearted honesty into their lyrical content which paved the way for the emerging 'new school' sound of the early 90s. Early releases from the likes of X Clan hinted at the 'afrocentric' sound that would come to prominence in the following years.

As with previous editions, our mix places classic cuts alongside the lesser heard. The CD version includes a megamix of 30 classic cuts from 1989 and a Chris Read Remix of a classic 1989 cut.

I have a confession - I just had an annoying realisation that (thanks to 2 albums by the same artist in the wrong sleeves) there's a track on this mix that's not from 1989. First person to spot it and email me gets some free stickers or something...
