Max LX & Dave VJ – KISS FM 4 August 1993

MAX & DAVE KISS FM 1993 TDK MA-X 90 TAPE [MR LAWSON] - Copy

UK Rap & Hip-Hop radio was presented by a myriad of DJs that blessed the airwaves over the years; Mike Allen, Tim Westwood, Big Ted, Richie Rich, Dave Pearce, Dan Greenpeace & Kish, Stu Allen, Leaky Fresh, 279 & Shortee Blitz, and more.

This tape comes from ex-Hardrock Soul Movement members Max LX & Dave VJ from Summer 1993. They presented a show on KISS FM in London during the 90s, it was broadcast mid-week and plugged a gap for the fiends that tuned into random Rap radio shows each week to get their fix.

This show doesnt feature any guests and has no exclusives, but that’s how it was back then, you tuned in, soaked up the vibes and you heard what you heard. Sometimes, like this tape, it was just good music. Sometimes I listen back to these shows and hear outfits I’d forgotten about, like UK artists like Unanimous Decision and Krispy 3, and it’s a guarantee that listening back, you’ll be noddin ya head to jams you’d forgotten about too, I know I did. This show is mostly made us of US acts and is a snapshot of the time. Keep an ear out for the weekly Rap report with Billboard writer Havelock Nelson, as well as a nutty sounding Hijack ID at the very end, as well as silly ads with VO’s from Harry Enfield/ Ade Edmondsen and the suitably and typically disinterested John Peel. Big shouts to Mr Lawson for the tape !!

WESTWOOD - FUJI DR-IX90 [ANDREW LAWSON] TAPE (2).jpg

This tape is another doozy from Mr Lawsons mighty archives. No freestyles or interviews but with all the good music, it shouldnt disappoint. There are a few adverts that might imbue a chuckle or two too. And there’s an almost comical promo from The Squadron right at the end of the tape [I think they were the crew of interns and assistants who helped out on the show, answering phones etc]. And if you are from South London, and blunts were a part of your life in 93, Tims’ mention of Johnny One Stop Blunts in Clapham/ Brixton will take you right back, if you can remember that far haha….
