Chat Room Get Down: Ep. 25 | HBD Hip‑Hop! Golden Era, Boom Bap + Classic Breaks

Had a lot of fun with this set. Hip-Hop and Breaks are probably my favorite genres to play because there is so much you can do to cut up songs, loop breaks, and trick mix along the way. I love and embrace the new technology in DJing nowadays, but there’s something about using just the basic bread & butter foundation that makes the whole experience that much more fun. Sounds from Classic Breaks such as Rock Creek Park, Shaft in Africa, I Believe In Miracles, Joyous, Get Happy, I Like Funky Music, Can, Brother Green, sprinkled with some block party jams, to some juggle routine inspired tributes of some of my favorite OG DJs Grandmaster Flash, Cash Money, Scratch, and Jazzy Jeff to some Old School Rap staples like Sucker MC’s, Pee-Wee’s Dance, and Pump It Up. 

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to enjoy some music with me. Fun convos as always, along with some random trivia, and it was fun playing Name That Tune (with just Baby Scratches lol). New cookie featured this week as Annie’s Snickerdoodle Bunny Graham Cookies. So good! Even got an ImGladGlad dance cam cameo with Ooree! Big shoutout to original_videorat and snorlocks for always helping me mod the chat. I super appreciate you all! Catch you next time!
