Kurtis Blow, what can I say that haven't been said about dude. He was one of the Original M.C.'s out of New York to really break out big and become a huge star when hip hop was just breaking. He is way over-sampled, to the point that I never want to hear a "These are the breaks" sample again, ever. He broke big way back in 1979 with Christmas Rappin'. Copycat did a little re-edit of Rappin' Blow, which I posted a link too below, as Im sure the soundcloud will die any minute now. I also included "Party Time", which for me is the best Kurtis Blow song ever. As it featured home-town heroes Trouble Funk on the beat.

AZ - The Come up (The Polish Ambassador Remix) by Polish Ambassador
A little Glitch Hop to get the morning started right from Polish Ambassador.
Finished a rough draft of a remix for Rory Hoy last night, I think it needs one more little break-down and it will be perfect, but I need to find the right idea to make it work. It's raining here in Alexandria today, which is a bit of a let down after the wonderful sunny day we had yesterday. Oh well, gonna go by the AGFA studio today and hopefully finish up these mixdowns for Gazeebo.
Have a wonderful Tuesday...

Sorry for the delay here at FW HQ, my wife had a baby boy last week and I have just been handling family duties and working on some re-edits and new tunes. Frank and I got up this last weekend and played a great outdoor gig here in DC, it was the closing of the Forward Fest and it was such a wonderful day. The picture is of my daughter dance battling a nice couple, while we drop some Sleeve and Stevie Wonder tunes.
I also wanted to mention we got an EP in the works from Rory Hoy coming out in a little bit, the Kool Hertz EP should be out any day now and The Breakbeat Junkie vs DJP EP on Baffin should be out in 2-3 weeks. These are all super hot EP's, and we are looking forward to putting these out.
Axe has been dropping some ghetto funk heat recently and I thought I would share. Dude kicks it from the land of OZ, and while he isn't doing anything super ground breaking, he does just drop solid bombs that seem to work in a lot of situations. I can drop these in a top 40's ish type set or straight up for the underground.
Axe - Keep It Flowing - 4A or 5A - 110.mp3
Axe - Ya'll Want This - 9A - 118.mp3
