40 years ago, hip hop was born in a house party in the Bronx by a Jamaican with a monster sounds system.
20 years ago today, this very day, strange noises were emanating from a small basement bar in Wolverhampton. I can’t believe it was THAT long ago. From a small night in the West Midlands to a regular fixture in people’s calendar from all over.
Tim, the Original Gang of 4 kind of made history; we all did.
Started as an idea during the Acid Jazz thing in the 90’s, but providing an alternative, expanding vision to that trend.
I struggled to find a way to mark this occasion. No recording exists of that night, unfortunately – it was fantastic.
I did find a recording, the earliest I could f ind, made 2 months after we opened.
I’d dedicate this to everyone, the crowd, guest DJs ,our regulars, everyone who worked there – you all made it unique & special.
Hopefully, over the months, I’ll find more stuff from, the archive…………..
