Back In The Day - Old School Reunion
So Im playing this Old School reunion party tonight. It should be hella fun if not for only seeing a whole lot of old faces. Im gonna drop some hands in the air trance bits that Ive mashed up which will be extra funny cos when that stuff was big I was playing jungle.
Old school in general is so many things to me, music wise - Hip Hop, reggae, hair metal, trance, jungle, house, speed garage, dancehall ect. So heres a rather eclectic assortment of some tunes that are "back in the day" for me, in no particular order.
DAWN PENN & BOUNTY KILLA "NO NO NO" [Unknown Jungle Remix]
This is an old school jungle ragga lick done but a to this day unknown producer. If anyone out there has the 411 on who to credit for the beats and breaks please advise.
SL2 "ON A RAGGA TIP"
Old school doesnt get any better than this. This anthem still goes down heavy to this very day.
AHMAD "BACK IN THE DAY"
One of my favorite and often times slept on hiphop jam from .....back in the day
OUTKAST "PLAYERS BALL"
Most cats I encounter these days love Outkast but have no idea about this song or the album its from. Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was widely slept on in my opinion but this tune is one of the greatest hip hop songs ever. RECOGNIZE!
UNDERWORLD "BORN SLIPPY"
This is pretty much "the rave anthem".
DEF LEPPARD VS. MIMS "POUR SOME HOT SUGAR ON ME" [A plus D mashup]
This tune was huge for me as a air guitar playing youth... well the original Def Leppard track was. I unfortunately dont have an mp3 of it but this mash up will do and for anyone actually craving to relive the whole Def Leppard experience - see below.
