It is only after you realise the records that these artists released, featured on, or produced does the full magnitude of their significance to Electro/Hip Hop culture become totally apparent: DAVY DMX - 'One for the Treble'. Davy DMX was a member of Orange Krush along with Larry Smith notable for the single 'Action' in 1981, but their chief credit was doing all the music for Run DMC's first two albums. Orange Krush are also credited on Lovebug Starski - You Gotta Believe and Sweet G - Games People Play, both on Fever Records in 1983. Davy DMX went on to replace DJ Run as Kurtis Blow's DJ (including a Madison Square Garden performance opening for The Commodores). He was also writing songs and playing guitar for some of Blow's tracks. One of Davy DMX's major mainstream projects was as a member of the Run DMC project The Afros. Davy DMX and Kurtis Blow both contributed to the early development of sampling in Hip Hop in the early 1980s. Davy DMX has produced for several prominent artists; Public Enemy - Hit The Road Jack, The Fat Boys - Hard Core Reggae / Jailhouse Rap / The Fat Boys Are Back LP. Wrote and produced Run DMC - Pause / Not Just Another Groove / Kurtis Blow - If I Ruled the World / Rockin / Hello Baby / AJ is Cool / The Breaks, and AJ Scratch Meets Davy D.

Numerous hit singles and albums including: Bring The Noise (LP - ( It Takes A Nation Of Millions... ), Rebel Without A Pause ( It Takes A Nation Of Millions... ), By The Time I Get To Arizona (LP - Apocalypse 91 ), You re Gonna Get Your

Wow, wow, wow.

I love this disk.
I've only owned it for a day and played it for 6 hours.
It would be easier to list my non favorite tracks but that would be unfair as they are pretty good too; but my absolute favs are:
Analog Feeling
Electro Gumbo
B-Boy Supreme (who would have thought Boogie Down Bronx could be sampled in a way to do it justice)
Cybernet City 2012
Nuclear Fallout
What is a DJ
I think you get my gist. It's a great disk and I hope Street Sounds keep this series filled with Electro and not so much Hip-Hop (like they did on pretty much everything after Electro 13 back in the day).
Great job Mr Khan and I'll look forward to Crucial 4.

I have been collecting Street Sounds albums for almost 18 years and when the label recently started to release new albums again I was literally jumping up and down with joy. The first new series was called`Nu Electro' and I have bought volumes 1, 2, 3 and now 4. Vol.4 is by far the most complete, and also the best of the series to date! Whereas the other volumes had some great tracks, good tracks and a few fillers, Vol.4 is brimming with incredible tracks that are far more in the mainstream, rather than just in the specialist `Electro' genre. Don't get me wrong, when I say mainstream I do not mean `Pop',I am referring to songs that have real pedigree and depth. Artists include Davy DMX & Chuck Cheese; DMX is the king of old school Electro (his classics "One for the Treble" "The DMX Will Rock" etc.) and Chuck D of the rap group Public Enemy (. "I Remember Hip-hop"is a KILLER track and should be a huge hit single in 2012. The other stand out tracks on the album are the new singles by DJ Cheese "More Of The Raw",which is like a montage of different flavours and styles...a future classic. The Freakazoids track is just pure energy and I dare you not to shake your rump! One of my favourite tracks from back in the day was Imperial Brothers "We come to rock". They (I assume the original line-up) are back with a vengeance with a track called "Breathe"which is bang up to date and fuses Hip-hop with Electro and delivers another monster tune! Cybernet City Soldiers (not heard of before) is an absolute gem which reminds me of a Vangelis track with huge orchestral sways and takes the listener on a journey which is rare these days. A real stand out track is the track "B-boy Supreme" by Redvenom which is a hip-hop/electro fusion that is bang up to the very best tunes I have heard in the last couple of years.Read more ›

I have been collecting Streetsounds albums (all genres)since 1982 when it all began. The original Electro series started with pure Electro tracks and as the genre evolved more hip hop style tracks came in and eventually Hip hop took over and has become the world wide smash that it is. I read a negative review on this album and was surprised to read that the reviewer disliked the fact that the first two tracks were more hip hop than Electro and has completely missed the point. The two genres go hand in hand and work well on this album. The tracks are varied and though all good there are a few stand out tracks, but you will have to have a listen to find out for yourself which ones they are. Remember this is Streetsounds, these guys broke the code in the early eighties and continue to do so. Yes the second disc is an unmixed version of the first disc which is brilliant and its a shame that the early albums didn't have an unmixed version aswell, perhaps Morgan Khan and the Streetsounds posse will re-issue the original series in a two disc version, we can only hope. In fact I used to collect Hed Kandi until all the discs became mixed, if they had have taken the mixed/un-mixed double disc route I would still be collecting them.

In short, this is a great album, its a 30th anniversary treat and I would recommend this CD to anyone, my only critisium is it took too long to release this after Nu Electro 3.

Nice one Streetsounds I look forward to Nu Electro 5
