DJ REGAL - THE BRONX IS BURNING
Here we have killer mix from DJ, Beat-maker & former BRONX DOG & WISEGUY - DJ Regal.
"The Bronx is burning" is a journey through the sounds of inner city NYC spanning from the early 70's to the paranoid, murderous citywide blackout of the "Summer of Sam" in the late 70's. The mix taking it's name from the 1972 FDNY documentary of the same name is a mini-soundtrack to what Regal says were "5 tumultuous years in Bronx History, which spawned so much, from so little..."
If you're a Beat-head, a B-Boy, a Disco fiend or a lover of Ruff Ghetto Soul then this mix is definitely for you!! Expertly programmed & mixed by someone with an unhealthy obsession of all things BX.
If all this 1970's New York stuff floats your boat then you should really wrap your eyeballs round this documentary from VH1 called "NY77 - The coolest year in Hell" which looks utterly AMAZING if this trailer is anything to go by:
Impressive, huh? Anyways, big up to DJ Regal for letting us post this killer of a mix & big up to you guys for reading, TGD may be a little quiet for the next week or 2 as i'm off to Berlin ransacking for records & Mr.Smith is STILL sunning himself in New Zealand!! But we'll be back soon - Stay tuned.
