Throwback Thursday – for the B-boys (via Alex Kidd Mixx Sanchez)

It’s “been a minute” since I’ve put up a TBT post but Alex Kidd Mixx Sanchez has just the right script to remedy any Old School deficiency!  The double dosage of early Hip Hop beats cover everything from Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force to the “wiki-wiki” of Newcleus as the needle drops to 1984..

On a side “Note“, I had a partial clip of B-Boy Breakdown Mixx 1 and was fully engaged in the web search for the complete mp3 file when I happened upon his FB page (with link above).  Much to my delight, I messaged ol’ boy and presto – links for B-BBM1 and 2 were at my fingertips and now at yours!  *Full download capability is offered along with the streaming audio option and if you dig the vibe as I do – please give him a shout-out with Peace and Love

Throwback Thursday – Secret Omen

Here’s one that might not resonate with my core following but I remember being intrigued by the vinyl cover when I was just a boy.  What I heard further sparked curiosity as to the book of jams that my cool Uncle John always had in tow .  I’m sure the songs he was into were more of the prominent “I Just Want To Be” and “Sparkle” single releases made popular at the time but when I put on the LP, the needle dropped to “Find My Way” which is today’s featured disco track.

“Find My Way” is a makeover of the original produced by “The Three Degrees” in 1972 and Larry Blackmon’s musical experience at  Juilliard shines though in this departure from the Cameo norm – if there is such a thing.  If Prince is a musical genius (of which I’ll acknowledge) Mr. Blackmon is very much the musical innovator.  “New York” is included as another largely unheard rola as I try and post the jams that might fall by the mainstream wayside.
