Another DJ mix experience from the DJ Rhythm Dee archives.
Sourced from my original mix tapes from the past.
Let’s go back into time.
1989 a time when Arsenio Hall was king, high top fades, polka dot shirts, bicycle shorts with leather jackets. How about Cross Colours, and Cosby sweaters. Batman returns to the big screen and we couldn’t get enough of Do the Right Thing.
This mix features, Public Enemy, Eric B & Rakim, Heavy D & the Boyz, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Maestro Fresh Wes and many, many more.

On a day that we mourn the loss of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin we celebrate one of the great songstresses to follow the path.
In this episode we delve into the life and music of Chaka Khan. BMS will take you from her roots in South Side Chicago, to her time with the legendary Funk/Soul/Jazz ensemble known as Rufus. Chaka literally gave her soul to the music business and paid a heavy price. She continues to record as well as serve as an inspiration for many artists.
Join me as we take you through the fire that is Chaka Khan.

parties and hall jams.

In the mid to late 80’s an alternative rhythmic style was introduced to the dance floors and airwaves; it was the birth and ride of Latin Freestyle. The beats were for the most part a direct derivative of the early 80’s electro beat style popular in New York and beyond pioneered by Afrika Bambata and the Soul Sonic Force and other local talent. The Hispanic community namely of New York and Miami put a new spin on the beats by incorporating melodic vocals and added musical layers.
