“The musical mixes of Jazzy Jay & Afrika Bambaataa, New Yorks premier scratch mixers. We’re WRKS New York”
Jazzy Jay and Afrika Bambaataa on 98.7 Kiss Mastermix Dance Party 1983 [Remastered]:
This is 1983 and this is a 40 minute segment of a ‘3 Hour commercial free music sweep’…featuring Jazzy Jay & Bam on the reel to reel as well as the decks, this has floated around for a while but I listened to it again recently and what they did on the edit blew me away….
They totally re-edit individual tracks within this mix. It’s really just a Hip-Hop only Jay & Bam version of a Kiss FM Latin Rascals Dance Party. So many rare tunes too. Its as if theyve done the most almighty pause-button tape when they get heavy on the machine-gun edit. Peep what they do with Burzootie – Drum Machine.
It’s a bit abrasive at times due to the quality, but generally, this is a sick tape…
