Escape From New York

Playing tracks by

Rodney O, Joe Cooley.

'Escape From New York' is a mix of '80s Hip Hop that doesn't have the classic East Coast sound of that time. These kind of records typically featured lots of scratching and I have to admit that some of the MCs weren't as good as the DJs. This style of Hip Hop was just as influential to me as any NY/East Coast Hip Hop of that time and I'm sure it was the same for most kids growing up in the UK back in the '80s. I made this mix primarily for my own fun/enjoyment so I've chosen to edit some of the song into an arrangement that I prefer, rather than keeping them true to their exact original arrangement.

***SOS Massive may actually be from Brooklyn (judging by one of the lyrics) but the 12" was released on a West Coast label and fits perfectly with all this other non-New York least to my ears.
