Nice cover of NY Rocker featuring Tina Weymouth of Tom Tom Club (ex-bassist of the Talking Heads) and Grandmaster Flash. One of the first media coverage in the history of Hip-Hop. Great article on Grandmaster Flash and the revolution it brought to DJing (notably the use of 30/60 second breaks in some funk and soul tracks). The title of the article “Spin Art” is a reference to his art of scratching, being historically the inventor or at least the propagator of scratching.
