James White and his extended playlist!

James is so on it!(Insert Beastie Boys reference here) I interviewed James for an up and coming article and this extended playlist arrived! Complete with a lil' insight on each track, awesome stuff! Here's what James had to say about the topic. "Okay, i know this is more than five but you gotta know where I’ve been to understand where I’m at!!"..


1)Kraftwerk – one of the first electronic groups and basically invented electro/Hip Hop. I remember trying to copy this dance!! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-0_gYYb1PE
2)Doug e Fresh and Slick Rick ‘The Show’ – One of the first decent Hip Hop Tunes to make it into the main stream and the first record i learnt all the words too. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gww98XxU1lc
3)Beastie Boys – I listened the beasties first album so much i wore the vinyl out. I still have two copies! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7M7d8u40I4
4)LL Cool J- Can’t Live without my Radio – Not a truer word spoken! Would you believe the Beastie actually discovered LL and got him signed to Def Jam!! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCZHJrooobs
5) DJ cheese – DJ’S are a big part of my listening pleasure and this was one of the first proper tablelist. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xd3bbx8vsu4&feature=related
Extended playlist...
6)DJ Grand Master – While I’m talking about DJ’S  I can’t miss ‘flash’ who is basically the equivalent to Bob Haro in DJ Mixing. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJHlZO6iONE
7)Eric B and Rakim – Follow the leader. As about as near to a perfect Hip Hop Record as you can get!!! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95gP3m-uBHA&feature=related
"As I delved deeper into Hip Hop i discovered a whole world of music with nothing off limits Check them out":
8)Lou Donaldson - Midnight creeper - Blue Note Records Mod Jazz-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah5GON4kv94
9)LYN COLLINS - ROCK ME AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN (6 TIMES) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOhcatJiwU0
12)Ananda Shankar-Streets Of Calcutta- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpJK6TQi-70
13)The Doors - Peace Frog- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mw6o8HZg2I
