DJ Stu Allan’s Top 10 EVER Hip Hop tracks*

Stu Allan will be responsible for more cassette usage by our ‘more mature’ listeners than any other DJ we’d be willing to bet. Hours were spent every week in front of the cassette deck with a fresh D90 on Pause/Record waiting for Stu Allan to drop bombs. And for that, we salute him!

We were really chuffed when Stu agreed to give us a Top 10 EVER. Stu is an extremely active DJ and has a cult following in both Hip Hop and club fields, a feat not many DJs can pull off well. The selection was tough, but Stu selected tracks which meant a lot to him over his career… whether it’s a track which was massive in the clubs, or one which meant a lot to him personally.

Check out Stu Allan online here:

Stu has given us his top 10 EVER Hip Hop tracks, check them out:

10. Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – ‘The Message’
9. Mantronix – ‘Needle To The Groove’
8. Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock – ‘It Takes Two’
7. Young MC – ‘Know How’
6. Public Enemy – ‘Public Enemy No. 1’
5. Eric B & Rakim – ‘Follow The Leader’

3. West Street Mob – ‘Break Dancin’ – Electric Boogie’
2. Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force  – ‘Looking For The Perfect Beat’

We ran through all of these on the 8th show, 18th June 2011… Also featuring Oli Byrne and Damon Savage on the wheels!

It was a tough list for any DJ to put together but the sheer level of experience and dues paid by Stu makes this list a real treat, so we’d like to say thanks for sharing this exclusively with An Evening With Tha Gods!

Morgan Khan’s Top 10 Tracks EVER*

We all know Morgan Khan… a music mogul and entrepreneur well-known in the UK during the 1980s. He played a large part in making various genres of urban music more accessible to UK consumers of Black and urban music after his founding of the iconic StreetSounds record label.

Morgan gave us some classic albums back in the days which figure in all our past hip hop and b-boy adventures. And still do to this day.

After a quiet spell, Morgan came back with brand new Electro from new and established artists and you should check the albums out on iTunes to see what you’re missing –http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/street-sounds-nu-electro-vol/id388840609 and there’s volume 1 and 2 out there and a volume 4 almost ready to drop.

We asked Morgan for his Top 10 EVER tracks, but he had to heavily disclaimer it – ‘this changes daily, and it’s just from the first series, if I included the latest ‘Nu Electro’ series it may well be different again!’ but hey, it’s a great top 10 and probably features most of the tracks we’d all select if pushed to choose a top 10 Electro tracks line-up.

One other point Morgan made was they were in no particular order too!

1. Newcleus – “Jam On Revenge (The Wikki-Wikki Song)”
2. Captain Rock – “The Return Of Captain Rock”
3. The B Boys – “Two Three Break”
4. Grandmaster Flash – “The Message”
5. Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force “Planet Rock”
6. Mantronix – “Ladies”
7. Sugarhill Gang – “Rappers Delight”
8. Herbie Hancock – “Rockit”
9. Hashim – “Al Naffiysh”
10. Egyptian Lover – “Egypt Egypt”

Great collection of tracks, and a pleasure to mix them up, like we did at the end of the 6th Portion of An Evening With Tha Gods!
