I'm from Cape Cod, MA USA. I have been DJing since around 1988 with tapes til around 1990, then Vinyl til now. I gotta give it up to the UK heads for after 1990 when the sampleadelic creativity we had going on in Hip Hop over here kinda faded and was continued and greatly expanded in the UK at around the same time. I greatly respect the UK heads and all you've done with music. Seriously glad to be here and to share and learn from the board. I have a pretty thick vinyl collection of 12,000 + pieces, mostly hip hop, disco and house. UK D&B and Hardcore from 1990 - 1997 or so. PEACE!
