ELECTRO ACUPUNCTURE: an electrofied b-boy xperience
[ DJ SHEEP'S DEBUT MIXTAPE FROM 1998 - FREE DOWNLOAD featuring: 80's West Coast Electro, Miami Bass, Electro Funk, Freestyle, Scratching, Vocoders, Egyptian Lover, Star Wars samples and more! ]
Before I was a "turntablist", "digger", "battle DJ" or any of that stuff, I held it down the turntables at shows for some of the illest b-boy crews of Australia: Rapid Fire, Wicked Force, B-Boy Allstars and my own Cyber Force and Skill @ Will crews.
I travelled with "Rapid Fire" and repped for Australia at the "Battle of the Year" also holding it down that next weekend in Holland at "Back To Planet Rock" with Big Daddy Kane and Phife Dawg in the house!
My education about this form of music came from the amazing "Streetsounds Electro" series of records [thanks Morgan Khan]. I was lucky enough to get the box-set in a trade with a pen-pal in the UK back in the day. Inspired by that series, in 1998, with a humble crate of records, I recorded this tape and handmade 400 copies to start my mixtape hustle. Thank you to everyone who bought one and SALUTE! to anyone who kept it all these years #RAER.
At the time this mix was recorded my life was influenced by a cyberpunk state of mind, star wars, vocoders, taped up pieces of cardboard, tracksuits, headspins, graffiti, tuxan and watching some of the most amazing acrobatically impossible shit ever! It has always been a honour to have a front row seat as a b-boy DJ.
Seeing as this is still my most "requested" material here in Brisbane and considered a "classic" by some. I'd like to finally offer this for a FREE download with track list. To all b-boys worldwide, continue to push the boundaries and find new music to break to. Bboy Bluntz coming soon.
