DJ Tokoloshe - The Revolution Will Be Televised

DJ Tokoloshe - The Revolution Will Be Televised

Playing tracks by

The jeep Beat Collective, Jungle Brothers, The Go! Team, Wombles and Aphex Twin.

The title for this mix comes from a song that answers Gil Scott Heron’s “The Revolution will not be Televised”. While Gil was talking about the underground, I guess now with reporters going into Iraq with troops and the prevalence of camera phones.... yep, the revolution will be on Youtube, you can count on that.
The second song comes from the the “Return of the DJ” album, the first all-DJ produced album. It was an interesting time in hip hop as I think a whole bunch of DJ’s at the time were getting the shits that MC’s were the focus on stage and on albums. I listened to this album constantly for months as scratching was the business back then. Your DJ muscle was measured on how well you could scratch. But then after attending a series of battle shows where the DJ would go on a 20 min scratch journey using only the “fresh” and aahhhh” samples from Fab 5 Freddy’s “Change the Beat”
