Dj LBR - Strictly Hip-Hop

DJ LBR was without a doubt one of the best dj's in France during the 90's.
French dmc vice-champion in 88, that year also marks his radio debut at radio Nova . Founding member of the double h dj crew dj LBR crosses the Atlantic in 1998 to sign to the famous AV8 record label (one of the famous party record labels in New York), where he becomes their main act along with Crooklyn Clan and Fatman Scoop.
Unfortunately over the years he turned commercial and switched styles. He is now a house music dj.

Lucky for us he made a good series of mixtapes, the ' Down with the King' series wich will also feature on this blog but as a treat we first serve you his first tape that came out in 97.
A nice little hip-hop gem with freestyles from the likes of Gravediggaz, Sages Poetes de la Rue , Kohndo and a smooth selection perfectly mixed by LBR.

Dj Iron & Kid Calico - The Showdown

Dj Iron has been an household name in the Belgian hip-hop scene for many years. Originating from the Belgian costal area he started mixing at an early 15 years old. He soon began making his own mixtapes wich he first distibuted at school and to his friends. He quickly made a name with his tapes wich where being sold through Ghent and the rest of Flanders.
Started producing some years later he is known for his raw & funky tracks wich would take him on to produce tracks for US rappers like El Gant, Planet Asia, Jamalski, Tableek & El Da Sensei.
He is also a member of the Dj Grazzhoppa Dj Bigband with whom he would tour all over Europe and demonstrate his skills on different stages.Being one of the creators of the Earquake label wich released several vinyls for the underground market and with many new projects yet to come time will tell where his talent will take him…
To introduce him we’ll start with his Showdown mixtape wich came out in 2004 and became a classic mixtape since then. The concept of this mixtape was to make something totally new with classic 90’s hip-hop songs. Every song on this mixtape is an unique blend, mixed and scratched together alongside Kid Calico. This unique tape brings backs the true essence of 90’s hip-hop.
