Now it's finally that time again to give you another potent dose of funky hip hop in the mix. We have been dropping a bucket full of heavy breaks of late, and it is well overdue that we get back to the beats. But believe me it's been well worth the wait. SOUND AWARENESS and SUPREME DOMINION CREW have been busy over this last month or so putting together the first of what we hope will be a regular in a series of DJ mixes consisting of rare, classic and under acknowledged hip hop records. Some of our regulars here at BREAKS FOR DAYS will know of PALMA (a veteran of the UK Hip Hop scene) and his SUPREME DOMINION CREW, representing the UK's east coast. His skills lie mainly with the microphone - if you wanna hear the man himself on the mic check out his radio show on ICR RADIO 105.7 on Friday nights 12pm - 2am by clicking HERE. Also check out the INVISIBLE MICS track on the WIDE ANGLES 2LP compilation on BLIND SIDE RECORDS from 1999 to peep PALMA's mic skills. And before that he goes whaaay back to the days of his first crew BROWNFOOT INTELLECT. (I could play you some of his dope shit from the early 90s but I will save that for another day.) But this time he is mixing up some dope jams for our listening pleasure. Here's what PALMA has to say about GET UP ON IT - a construction of old and dope funky rap music...
"I hope you dig it, feel the track selection and feel compelled to listen to it more than once. I am sure more than a few of you educated hip hop fans will know the tracks or be familiar with the artists featured. Nothing ultra obscure because that's not my focus here. I included only a few what you may consider rare pieces, but most importantly and specifically records I have loved since the days of my youth which i merited on the quality of dope, funky beats and rhymes between the grooves. Please feel free to share with your homeboys and girls or add to your blog.
Thanks to DJ Ambrose, J.Mack, J/157, Ben Marr, Jimbo, Kid Dyno and The Beat Detective, and all the true school hip hop die-hards and artists on this mix CD for the inspiration."
