The year was 1984 and the first Macintosh computer went up for sale, the first consumer CD player became available and forensic scientists developed genetic fingerprinting technology. On television we were watching Ghostbusters, Beverly Hills Cop, Gremlins and Terminator while artists like Phil Collins, Tina Turner, and Stevie Wonder rocked the pop charts.
The early hip-hop heads were having none of that and breaked to the mixes of Kool DJ Red Alert, the Fat Boys rapping out Can You Feel It, and Newcleus with Jam On It. Party goers in New York might have been around to hear live music from the likes of Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh and one of their early live performances took place at Lincoln Project, NY. If you missed it, were too young or not even born, this is for you and the true heads out there. La Di Da Di, we like to party!
