Capital Rap Show

July 9, 1993
(95.8 FM)
London, England, UK

One more out of Diablo's box before I head off for a week in the sun (hopefully). Could just be nostalgia as I don't remember noticing it at the time but Capital Rap Shows from 93 and 94 seem to have a different vibe to the Radio 1 shows of 94 and 95. The tracklists seems a bit edgier, although that could be a reflection of the music as a whole. In this instance the likes of Poor Righteous Teachers and Akinyele sit comfortably next to the Dogg Pound and Big Mike's dope solo cut off the Geto Boys album, with a Chris Goldfinger reggae mix closing the last 15 minutes of the tape...

That Premier beat on 'Higher Level' is a bit good innit? Wouldn't have sounded out of place on the Group Home album. Lovely stuff.
