DJ Mek - UK Hip Hop Flashbacks Part One

UK Hip Hop Flashbacks (part one) by Djmek on Mixcloud

I've been waiting on this one a while now; it finally dropped today (well part one anyway). Our favourite DJ DJ Mek pulls out the dusty plates that inspired us so much back in the day; as kids Hip Hop still felt remote and exotic musically, it was only after we heard the UK's take on (particularly) MC'ing that we realised the floodgates were open for all. Inspiring stuff.

'Excuse the scratchy vinyl - these tunes have been thru the wars. :) '
