DJ Law drops this set which is mostly Canadian content. Ghetto Concept going back to ’92, Frankenstein to ’95.. these are some real classic Toronto hip hop tracks. And, to top it all off, we even get “Kish – Crates to Concrete” — a track I never thought I’d hear again. I don’t know whether the two unknowns are Toronto rap but it wouldn’t surprise me.

DJ Law is the shit. That’s all I can say.

Unfortunately Project Bounce has been taken off the air effective December 2007. Sure, I wasn’t listening to it every night or anything, but this is almost as sad as when Classick Material got cancelled, just more abrupt. I mean, shit, how will I get my DJ Law fix!?!

For the time being anyways that’s no problem because I’ve got a couple more sets to post. I’ll try to throw up all the Project Bounce related stuff I can in upcoming posts as tribute to this legendary Toronto hip hop institution.

Oh yeah, DJ Law is the shit.

Some people use the word funky too loosely
And just how many rappers said they kick it like Bruce Lee

Here’s a little snippet of DJ Law’s weekly west coast Wednesday show I recorded last year, and has been collecting.. ‘dust’. I’m particularly feeling Rappin 4-Tay (just in case you never heard of Rappin 4-Tay [he’s] on the smooth tip), “My Summer Vacation”, and “Tonite”.

EDIT: Thanks to (presumably) DJ Law for filling in the gaps in the playlist! Much appreciated.

I’m ashamed I haven’t posted any DJ Law sets yet. DJ Law, the one remaining DJ from when I listened to Project Bounce in 2004. I still tune into West Coast Wednesdays when I remember it’s on. As much as I love lots of the stuff on Project Bounce, I am a minority in that I don’t like the new club music. So I have to be a little selective. DJ Law plays some nice stuff you’ve never heard but isn’t strictly old school. I learn a bit from him, as Mista Boxx said, tracks don’t have to be old to be classic. But that’s for another post. These tracks are old, and classic. Nothing wrong with that.

These sets are from back in Sept 2004. This is an amazing collection of good obscure early 90s hip hop. With a couple exceptions, I’ve never heard any of these tracks before, and these unknown tracks aren’t exactly Google-popular — help me identify them! They are ill!

Second set I’ve posted this week with Da King & I – Tears. Amazing track, amazing production on that … and a couple tracks to watch out for are Pudgee the Phat Bastard, Raw Fusion, Capital Tax.. many more.
