This mix was compiled for Rap History Berlin by Marc Hype (Tracks #1-7, www.mixcloud.com/marchype/), Dejoe (Tracks #8-11, www.mixcloud.com/dejoe) and DJ Scientist (Tracks #12-19, www.mixcloud.com/djscientist/). It contains some late classic old school rap and also showcases some of the earliest hip hop based electro tracks that almost changed the sound of Hip-Hop completely during that year. Many of the songs in this mix defined the beginning of the electro / electro rap / drummachine era and marked the end of the “old school” rap record which usually was based on a replayed groove by a live funk band.
As always, please check raphistory.net for an (almost) complete list of rap records that came out in 1982:
