Ive got mixed feelings on this post as after over a year of Versus 90's posts this is going to be the last one ever!
The good news is that we will be continuing it at our new blog so stay tuned as we got something special under wraps.
We've put together an extra big post for all our Versus fans, thanks for the support and stay tuned!
Dj Mike B of Banana Split fame has a great blog that I wanted to let you know about. He has been posting vinyl rips from more obscure 90's tracks from his collection which is where I got this one, a Hotel California / Pass The Dutchie jungle remix.
Watermelon - Jungle Shit
Ive been meaning to post some Freestyle Fellowship for a while. Comprised of group members Aceyalone, Mikah 9, P.E.A.C.E., and Self Jupiter, their 93' album, "Inner City Griots" has been listed as one of the top hip hot albums ever made. They never attained widespread recognition and after the incarceration of self Jupiter following "Inner City Griots" the group broke up. They continue to be discovered by new hip hop fans at a pretty significant rate and have been back together releasing albums. This is from their first album "To Whom It May Concern" (1991) which was originally released on a limited run of only 300 vinyl and 500 tapes.
Freestyle Fellowship - Sunshine Men
Two Real McCoy tracks here. I havn't been able to determine exactly where this first one is from although I know that it's on the album "Mega Dance Into The 90's" that I picked up. Im pretty sure its pre "Another Night" as it has that ernest ghetto sound to it, as if it was made with a cheap four track recorder which i'm a sucker for.
MC Sar & The Real McCoy - It's On You
and this one which brought the group mainstream success in the US after its 1993 release.
The Real McCoy - Another Night
I found this one over at the Corporate Bloggin blog. I didn't know Dj Tonka and Ian Pooley used to be partners back in Germany before going there separate ways in 96' when this one was made.
Dj Tonka - Old Skool
I found this one after trying to find the Buckwheat Boyz track by the same name.
Dj Unkle Al - Peanut Butter Jelly Time
I posted some LA Style a few weeks back which was when I rediscovered this one.
LA Style - James Brown is Dead
What more is there to say other than this song was the opening theme song to much music's friday night live dance show, "Electric Circus"? from the album forever faithless.
Faithless - Insomnia
