WYDU Classics May 09: WYDU Loves The 80's

by Travis on June 4, 2009


I got a bunch of stuff going on the next few days, so while I’ll try to stay up with the site, I’m not totally sure how it’s going to turn out. I also realized I forgot to put up a WYDU Classics for May, so I thought this is a good of time as any to do that. Don’t worry June will be up sometime this month as well.

I’ve been on a big 80′s kick, since reading the Run DMC book that was written by Ronin Ro. I realize that the more time passes, the more the 80′s sound is dated, but I don’t care, it’s still probably my favorite decade of hip hop. Just raw break beats and kick drums. It was hip hop in it’s purest essence (while it’s been on vinyl). So I had to dedicate this month to some of the 80′s music that I had laying around. Some classics and some rare gems litter this month’s collection. Everyone from radio DJs, Mr. Magic and Chuck Chillout appear this month. The legendary Fab 5 Freddy has a track on here as well. Nine in his original group, Deuces Wild makes an appearance. You have classics from Run DMC, Whodini and the original incarnation of Public Enemy and a young(er) Chuck D with the Spectrum City crew, which most of you I’m sure already knew. Some fairly obscure singles in The Tall Dark & Handsome and Bennetton Gang tracks, which are both typical 80′s track, which means they are dope. Early stuff from BDP and Mister Baby Got Back himself, Sir Mix-A-Lot. If you are a fan of the 80′s and don’t have most of this, this is a collection you’ll have to check out…..

Thanks to the sites I know I got a few tracks from, Will C., Philaflava, Jesse Serwer, and whoever I might have missed…
