In a series of archive posts I will be making, the aim is to upload every single show to various places online. If you are new to Disco Scratch, you will find we play what I call “True School Hip Hop”… some people might say this is a wanky, non descript phrase, so I’ll break it down: “Old School UK Hip Hop”, “Old School US Hip Hop” and only that which is decent!
I play brand new up to date music and any decent Hip Hop from it’s inception to today. I also play music that Hip Hop draws it’s elements from… we call this “The Roots Of The Roots”, which features in future episodes with myself on Disco Scratch & in the Ageing B boys Unite show, available on Disco Scratch& hosted by Repo136.
I have noticed that various things I have uploaded over the years have been ripped off and have appeared on other websites, youtube channels and so on. I suppose it’s a form of flattery but nonetheless, a nod to the content creator wouldn’t go amiss! This website is the only official source of uploads by myself & other contributors. All our channels are listen in the links page if you want to check our online presences.
This first upload is a pilot I did in 2009. Even though the site was live from September 2007, I didn’t get my arse in gear and do anything much beyond posting some tape rips and such. At first, Disco Scratch was more of a personal site with my own musings, sharing tape rips & vinyl rips via links in the forum.
The rise in the FaceBook phenomena killed all that and now most people I know are just on there. This is a real shame as it’s an unstoppable beast, people barely leave it… I have a problem with the data protection on there but it is what it is… no such thing as a free lunch! You can get at me personally on there @chopshitup
Anyway onto the show, tracklist in comments below with links to everywhere this is available online, or you can stream or download directly from within this post.
The very first (official) Disco Scratch Radio show, the pilot predecessor to the main shows, first aired in May 2009. Hosted by Waxer @ The POV v.1 (Dudley, West Midlands).
This is part of the archive series of shows I am uploading to get every single episode available for download from official sources. Tracklist in comments.
