Highly underrated tracks of the 80's continued...

BEAT BOP - Rammelzee Vs. K-Rob produced by Jean Michel Basquiat (who also did the original cover art), is another classic you need to know (released circa 1983). You may have first heard it in the incredible "Style Wars" documentary (which i highly recommend if you've never seen, a must for anyone into hip-hop culture and graffitti in particular). And if you've never heard it before, now's your chance.


  1. X2 on Beatbop and Style Wars for that matter! Thanks for reminding me... been too long since I heard it last!

  2. Classic! Available on the "Downtown 81" soundtrack, but spring for the New York Noise: Dance Music from the Underground 78-82 compilation. The version on the latter is the full ten minute track (the version on "Downtown 81" is only 6:12)
