CRDS Presents-Piles and Piles of Demo Tapes By Da Miles Volume 2















Peace

I have just compiled another volume of ill demo's from the East and the West Coasts with material from some established artists and some that we never heard from again, material that dates back from early to mid 90's, you can still get the first one here

Most of these tracks are ripped from old radio shows and dubs of dubs so it goes without saying that the quality on some tracks is not overly great...still this compilation sounded all grav in my headphones.

I'd like to send fat shouts to Roy Johnson, Nobs, Nes, Eons One from Ripped By Metal Explosions, Blockhead, Verge and the crew at Heavy Jewelz and everyone that has kindly supplied these demos over the years and of course all of the legendary DJ's that played these back in the day and all of the producers, MC's and artists that featured on these, thank you for the timeless music and your contributions to Hip Hop.

Finally, stupid fat shouts to Unikone and Drasar Monumental for posting this comp up at their dope blogs.
 
Enjoy

Diggers ID Spot/ DJ Premier in D&D Studios






This was a really dope demo from the infamous  
The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show (big up to serch4beatz for the hook up)
Massive props to Zgedi for letting heads know that it was a demo from a kid called Berry White-The Man Is Back (1993)...I can only imagine how ill this kid's album would have been.
I still would love an ID on this dopeness please...




...and while we are on the history tip, check out this video of DJ Premier running down the history of the legendary D&D studios which was home to hundreds of classic singles, albums and veteran producers behind the boards plus he speaks on the making of some classic Gang Starr joints.

Chopped Herring Presents: CeStyle of TOTAL PACK PARKHOUSE MUSIC 1995-1998 EP

































True heads and lovers of vintage 90's Hip Hop radio stalwarts Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito (peep this legendary freestyle alongside The Artifacts) and Wildman Steve at WBAU's shows will fondly remember the name of Hollis, Queen's MC CeStyle and the name Total Pack who featured as the Unsigned Hype pick in the The Source magazine in December 1992 (see article here)
















Sadly like so many before them, Total Pack suffered through record label deals that never eventuated, artistic differences and music that was never released, technically the only real releases from Total Pack were on the limited promo DJ Eclipse mixed Wild Pitch Blends cassette released in 1994.

"What's The Deal" and "Battle Hymn" 

In the late 90's CeStyle was part of the group The Korp, who were signed to Stretch Armstrong's Dolo records label and released the "We Comin" 12" and featured on his classic Lesson 2 mixtape.





















To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the crew, the infamous and incredible label Chopped Herring how now have a staggering resume of the finest top quality Hip Hop old and new is proud to be releasing yet dope music that hasn't seen the light of day until now...

Heavy Jewelz Presents-12 Block - Movin Island Style Thorough 12" EP
















 
 
 
Heavy Jewelz is once again making power moves, following up truly ill releases from Adagio, Gee Rock & DA CND Coalition and Terror Green they are now releasing dope unreleased and much sought after material from 12 Block.
 
Peep...

What exactly happened to Hard 2 Obtain?
Well, I can't tell you what i don't know but I can tell you this much. A Math (12 Block) was originally supposed to be one of the main emcees in H2O, along with Taste The Terror (12 Block, Hard 2 Obtain), but as the recording of Ism & Blues was about to commence, A Math decided that finishing his education down south was the right move at the time. 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fast forward a little while later to September 1994 and A Math makes his way to the studio with Taste and Dj Nastee who also worked closely with H2O. 
 
 
These tracks were all recorded from Sept 94 to Feb 95. "If It's On Like That (C'mon)" was played on Stretch And Bobbito and is another elusive sought after demo, as was "Movin Island Style Thorough".
 

12 Block - Movin Island Style Thorough 12" Vinyl EP

1994 - 95 ALL UNRELEASED Demo's
100 copies Clear with Black Smoke
200 copies 150 Gram Black
12 Test Press bundles
 
All retail copies come housed in polylined innersleeves in no die cut hole white jackets with an 8" x 8" sticker with artwork by Spek The Architek.
 
 
 













 
Fat shouts out to Verge, Martin Catchwreck and Patrock
