ZULU WILDSTYLE is not only the name of a classic 12″ from D.ST and B-Side, but also a laughably classic music video. This track pretty much sums up the year 1983. Electro funk was in full swing and the euro trash/new wave influence was showing up in everyone from the Cold Crush to Def Jam. Brings back sweet memories.
Here’s a mix that sums up that era pretty perfectly. AFRIKA ISLAM spins a good hour of electro as well as plenty of classic breaks (he even shouts out Kool Herc). This was from his show on WHBI, which was the predecessor to the great WRKS. This is also the station that featured the World Famous Supreme Team show. Remember, from the Buffalo Gals LP?
