The History of the Boombox, NPR Music

Before iPods (or even CDs) there were boomboxes. It’s been 20 years since they disappeared from the streets, but the nostalgia they evoke is about more than stereo equipment. We’ve changed the way we listen to music — and to each other. Watch a video about the history of the boombox.

Phife Dawg / A Tribe Called Quest


Capítulo dedicado a Phife Dawg aka The Five Footer aka Mutty Ranks, miembro de A Tribe Called Quest, que falleció el 22 de marzo de 2016 por complicaciones con su diabetes.

El vídeo pega un vistazo rápido al tiempo que nos acompañó musicalmente, desde su llegada con el primer álbum de A.T.C.Q., hasta su carrera en solitario de la que hay un álbum publicado, uno pendiente de publicar (supuestamente se titulará Muttymorphosis) y también a alguna de sus colaboraciones.

Dedicado de la memoria de Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor.

Man Of Boom – Live / Make The Hood Look Good – CHTV Openair Season 2014


Boom Bap at its finest: Man Of Boom were rocking a show with the energy of the golden era at the Make The Hood Look Good Festival. Figub Brazlevič’s beats with their typical vibe fitted perfectly together with Juju Rogers and Teknical Development on the stage. They really brought the boom back with their first show in switzerland!
Back To The Boom!
