Here’s a chance to listen back to the tribute show we did to Biggie on Galaxy 101’s Swing Shift back in March 1997, straight after the news of his shooting had broken. Thanks to Dave Nicholls, a DJ from Lakota, Bristol back in the day, who requested this, prompting me to go into the archives to dig it out.
While there, I also exhumed a Swing Shift show from 1996, the show’s first year, which is representative of the truly great music that was getting put out in those times. Hell, even the ads were cool back then. Classic material for anyone that digs the soul, swing and hip-hop sounds of the 90s.
Finally, two of my favourite moments from the entire history of the show – excerpts from a pair of classic mixes thrown down by 3PM Crew turntablist DJ Lynx, with MCs Kelz and Krissy Kriss on the mic. Spine-tingling, good-time radio. Download these and feel hose good times come rushing back!
