Washington DC's Go Go Scene: The Face article (April 1985)

It's cool to see how much of a splash Go Go made back in the 80s on an international scale, and this article from The Face (UK) perfectly illustrates that. There's no denying Go Go's influence on the Hip Hop sound coming of NYC (and elsewhere) during the mid-late 1980s. Trouble Funk in particular, put in plenty of work during those years and rarely (if ever) got the credit they deserved.

Go Go is woven into the fabric of Hip Hop, and the proof is in the records whether we're talking about Queen Latifah, Salt'n'Pepa, Kurtis Blow, Roxanne Shante, Beastie Boys, the list goes on.... So big up DC! Big up all the struggling Go Go artists who paved the way back in the day, especially Chuck Brown the Godfather, Trouble Funk, EU, Junkyard Band, Backyard Band, Northeast Groovers....

This kinda cracked me up.... At one point in the interview, Chuck Brown even points out the importance of using DC Slang or "Slanguage" when performing. He then rhymes something with "Bama" to illustrate his point, and this is all in the article. Bama!

Shouts to for the amazing source material!  Please take a moment to check out their site, as its FULL of extra special secret stash material from back in the day.

There are countless examples of the slackness seemingly inherent to Jamaican dancehall music, but there has also been a strong trend to reintroduce the conscious themes and mindsets of old roots reggae into the genre, leading to dancehall tracks that actually preach and practice good citizenship. That's the case with this sampler, which features a dozen songs touching on kids, school, and parenting, a collection that exhibits all the bluster of straight dancehall with a softer center. Highlights include "Respect" (based very, very loosely on the old Stax song) by Vicious, and Tony Rebel's "Teach the Children." ~ Steve Leggett

 A little background on the Bass Architects…

Eternal and Transit are two of the most established underground djs that the DC area has produced. With over 30 years experience between them and countless performances dating back to 1994 these two know exactly what it takes to get a dancefloor rocking. They have earned a reputation for playing tight, musical sets and have an uncanny ability to select tunes most djs slept on or just plain missed out on. The two are also notorious crate diggers and their sets are sure to feature a few rarities and classics on wax.

Eternal, who got his start playing jungle and breakbeat in Richmond VA and Allentown PA back in 1995, was part of the seminal Parametrics DC DJ crew, resident DJ at the AYA DnB weekly and later as resident and head of DnB bookings for the massive Destination weekly at DC Tunnel. Steve Eternal was also the brains behind PMX Radio in the early 2000′s and is currently a resident at the legendary Eighteenth Street Lounge in DC, where he holds down Dub and Dancehall for Wednesday nights as Version Sound. Transit was one of the first jungle/dnb djs in Upstate NY while in school at Cornell and was also partners with Rogers and Freefall as part of CatalystDC. He also helped start progressive dnb label TestFlight Recordings which featured forward thinking beats from artists like Blame, ASC and Orion.

The Bass Architecture project is their most recent endeavor and aims squarely at the diverse world of Bass music. Bass Architecture Version 1 is a deep and soulful journey into the sound of UK Garage and modern Bass music unlike many you will hear. They effortlessly combine complex beat structures and atmospheric textures with post-rave vocal edits to great effect. Modern masters like Ramadanman and Pangaea feature prominently alongside new school beatsmiths like George Fitzgerald, Jack Dixon and Jay Grind. With influences ranging from freestyle and footwork to deep techno, dub and chicago house this is just a taste of what to expect in the next few years from this seasoned duo.

In addition to new and classic mixes and a podcast starting this spring they plan to put out several new original tunes later this year. Remember to check out Steve Eternal aka Version Sound every other Wednesday spinning dancehall at the venerable Eighteenth Street Lounge in DC!

* Props to Erictronica and EXBC crew for hosting and supporting Bass Arx, and for being proactive about pushing this underground music forward not just locally here in DC, but globally with the EXBC programming and online presence. Looking forward to the Future!!!
