THE TIME TRAVEL !!!
(note times are a rough guide and subject to change slightly on the night!)
★★★★★★ DJ Set time: Pre Midnight ★★★★★★
Era: The 00's
When RnB's Mario was irritated with being 'Just a friend', when HipHop's Busta Rhymes & Ludacris dropped club banger after banger, when Dancehall went global and Elephant man signalled di plane.. pon di river ... pon di bank
★★★★★★ DJ Set time: 00.00 - 02.00 ★★★★★★
Era: The 90's (our biggest focus!)
Music: ★HIPHOP★ and ★RnB★was arguably at its finest! Cable TV meant SWV, TLC, Jade & En-Vogue had guys drooling over music videos on The Box and BET's music channel. 180 and 240 VHS tapes stacked up on our shelves with recordings of our favourites. Jodeci, H-Town, Donell Jones, Joe & Usher showed that a man could maintain his masculinity while expressing his tender side – They had ladies loving the male species … until Destiny’s child asked about their bills, and called upon the Spice girls to reinforce the message. 2 Pac…Notorious BiG were icons, and can we forget the story of MC Hammer!? Positive K didn’t care if you had a man, and The Boyz were ‘Crazy’. The fusion of Hiphop, dance/pop and RnB brought ★NEW JACK SWING★ to light by key producers (mainly Teddy Riley) – Guy, Blackstreet, Bel Biv Devoe, New Edition were born. Digital dancehall aka ★RAGGA★ saw ‘Mr Loverman’ Shabba Ranks (&*£”!!!??) fuse Dancehall with RnB flavours to appeal to a wider audience, while Supercat, Topcat, and Catcat stayed closer to underground along with female artists like Patra. Drum & Bass was fused with Ragga and ★JUNGLE★ was born – it was incredible…(sorry - had to) In other genres such as ★DANCE★ 2 unlimited advised us there was no limit to the sky. In the early 90s’ ★UK GARAGE★ was born from ★HOUSE★ and was developed into several different forms – Speed garage, 2 step etc – Producers like MJ Cole, Todd Edwards, promoters like Dreem Teem, Tuff Jam, and stations like Ice and Freek helped bring the movement forward.
TV: Before 1997 it was just BCC 1, 2, ITV and Channel 4 – there was no Channel 5 and the BBC used an image of a girl playing noughts and crosses with a clown when they were off air! You watched The Real McCoy, Fresh Prince, Cosby Show, A different World as well as The A Team, Knight Rider, Airwolf.
Fashion: Glamma Kid said “inna di mos moschino some a di gal dem a bounce” while Starkey Banton screamed “I and I nah wear no Versace!” Bomber Jackets & shell suits were the norm, along with La Gear, Patrick Ewings and expensive trainers you could pump up to make you run faster. Ladies gelled their hair down to their foreheads, Kid and play made guys try out the Flattop, and Jerry Curl hairstyles just wouldn’t go away!
P.s Jamie Oliver was just a teenager so lunchtime at school was chips, fish fingers, burgers, Cake and custard, jam tarts and custard, toffee tarts and custard…
★★★★★★DJ Set time: 02:00 – 03:30★★★★★★
Era: The 80’s
Music: Forget Nelly & Kelly Rowland’s dilemma, Top of the pops forced us to watch Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan sing Especially for you. The New Kids came to the block, Madonna constantly dominated the charts and Michael Jackson (RIP) was possibly the biggest ★POP★ music stars of this time across the world (along (with the biggest music videos - Thriller!?). ★REGGAE★ was brought to pop by artists like UB40. On the underground, ★RARE GROOVES★ saw tunes like Maxi’s ‘Lover to Lover’ and Starvue’s ‘Body fusion’. Lovers rock saw one of the genres biggest hits, Janet Kays ‘Silly games’. Gwen Mcrae gave us a Funky Sensation as well as All the love she was giving with some ★DISCO★ soul classics. The end of this era saw Soul to Soul top the Charts with Back to Life (followed closely by the ‘founder of ★NU CLASSIC SOUL★’ Omar with ‘There’s nothing like this’ in 1990.
Dances: The movie Breakdance made the genre more popular and had kids spinning on their heads while mummy wasn’t looking. The Electric slide (not to be confused with the Karma Sutra position) was originally introduced late 70s but has been used on any and every occasion in the 80’s, 90s, 00s … and now. Running Man and the Robot were also alive and kicking.
TV: Neighbours was born, and we wondered who shot JR in Dallas. Eddie Murphy brought us ‘Coming to America’ as well as Eddie Murphy Raw!
★★★★★★DJ Set time: 03:30 – 04:00★★★★★★
Era: The 70’s and beyond
Music: Best known The ★MOTOWN★ sound and music from Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Jackson 5, Diana Ross, Staples Singers, Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire … need we say more on this era?
Please note we have only TOUCHED on the subjects, we could continue writing for DAYS… please get involved and post the era followed by what you remember most on the event wall below! E.g ‘90s: My favourite show was Desmonds!’
