Classic Material   1991 [mix] Classic Material   1991 [mix]

This is 5th edition of Classic Material paying homage to a year of hiphop via a mix and party. This time, its 1991 which gets the limelight, the year which signaled the start of what many consider to be a golden period for club friendly credible hip hop . Aside from numerous memorable LP releases, 1991 was above all a year of anthems – Tribe’s ‘Scenario’, Nice and Smooth’s ‘Hip Hop Junkies’, Showbiz and AG’s ‘Party Groove’ and many other club records with catchy hooks saw releases during the year. 1991 was also a solid year for long players with stand out debut LPs from Black Sheep and Main Source amongst others. Debut LPs from Del the Funkee Homosapien and Cypress Hill both broke preconceptions about the West Coast sound in very different ways.

The Classic Material 1991 party takes place at The City Arts and Music Project tonight with special guest Ollie Teeba (Herbaliser).

This has already been around the blogosphere for a bit but its well deserved of a re-post right here. “The c60 music player from IDEO’s Boston office. The team brought to life a concept from Martin Bone and Kara Johnson’s book, I Miss My Pencil, that brings physicality back to the experience of listening to music.” Please someone take this into production.
