Tru-Tone: TTR004 ft. Whirlwind D

Whirlwind D got infected by hip-hop in the early 80s and formed the legendary UK crew Solid N Mind in 1990 together with Johnny F. He was also a part of the Liberty Grooves label and shop. As a radio DJ and writer for Record Collector Magazine he's back with some new music.

20 years after "Battle Tipped Rhyme" MC Whirlwind D and DJ Waxer (Discoscratch) present "The WD-40 EP". Whirlwind D and Waxer have teamed up to create this EP as they both approach their 40th. The track "Strong" is earlier Solid N Mind material, while 32 & Tea and Hunter are more reflective, looking at life's ups and downs. 

Release date: 28th of May 2012
Rap: Whirlwind D
Beats: Waxer
Cuts: Theory 77
Art Direction & Design: Mr Krum

    -- not really feeling the new color scheme; at times my browser freezes up loading the page due to multitude of embedded players; sometimes I wonder if there's too much emphasis on the (limited) quantities of records rather than the quality these days (not that that's your fault...)
