D Styles - 2005 - Inspiration Information



The leader of the pack to deejays like Ricci Rucker and Mike Boo, D-Styles is the crown ruler at moving the role of the hip hop dj forward. Firstly as a ISP member and subsequently in solo mode guesting on nuff stellar projects plus we can't forget all those perverted battle break albums. This 34 part one hour CD is part old school mix and half a compilation of old school jams that have influenced D's scratching and jams that are obviously some of his favourites. The majority of the tracks are low riding 808 boom tunes, you know the type rocked by Too Short and most influencially by 2 Live Crew on the sick 'Ghetto Bass'. Blunted beatbox rockets drop from DMX and Ready Roc C backing up Fresh Prince and Just Ice. Forgotten crew UTFO feature as well as JVC Force, Gucci Crew, Z-3Mc's, Steady B, School Of Hard Knocks and Jewel T. Extra props for including Knights Of The Turntables 'Techno Scratch', a ill education. Extra bonus tracks at the end of this CD include D rocking with Ricci Rucker and Mr.Henshaw plus much more. Highly recommended. - Bookmat
