About the show

Playing tracks by

Showbiz & AG, Gang Starr, Hard Knocks, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Double XX Posse and more.

Edition #6 of our monthly Classic Material series pays tribute to the hip hop of 1992, a year most notable for shifts in production techniques and styles and perhaps more importantly sampling trends. Abandoning over-saturated funk standards in favour of obscure jazz samples, producers such Showbiz, Diamond D, Q Tip and many others besides laid the foundations for the laid back jazz led sound that characterised countless East Coast classics of the early to mid 90s. On the West Coast, Dr Dre's seminal Chronic LP also broke new ground in terms of production style with a polished classicly LA sound that formed the blueprint for the 'G Funk' sound which ruled supreme throughout the early 90s.

The Classic Material Edition #6 party takes place at the City Arts and Music Project in London on Saturday 16th April with special guest Big Ted (Teddy's Jam / Blak Twang / Kiss Fm)

I definetly agree when you say that "Efil 4 Zaggin" is still a bit sketchy compared to the fully fledged west coast sound of "The Chonic". Keep on keeping on. ;-) Peace.

@Defcon yeah I agree to a point. For me that album always occupied a sort of middle ground between the Chronic and earlier NWA style wise but you're right that you can hear a lot of those ideas in there. I think it's more that Chronic delivered a full album of that sound in way that sounded 'complete' for want of a better word and was definitely more influential in terms of its impact on how others approached the West Coast sound after. All open to debate though!

Nice to hear those tunes from way back. No offense, but IMHO the blueprint for G Funk is NWA "Efil 4 Zaggin", not "Chronic". All Dre's ideas about sound and production are already in that NWA which marks a strong departure from the earlier NWA sound. Even the 100 miles and runnin EP, which was released a year prior to Efil 4 Zaggin, still sounds like oldschool NWA. "The Chronic" only turned that westcoast sound mainstream.
