• KFMP: The Pioneers Hip Hop Show

    good piccy of uscdrop

    This pilot show gives you a flavour on various periods in hip hop’s history (in this case the late 80s).

    Whirlwind D (Dudley Jaynes) has been involved in the hip hop scene since the early 80s and is a passionate record collector. Having dabbled in b-boying and graffiti, he found his niche rocking the mic in the late 80s. After a brief spell working with the fledgling Kold Sweat Label, he cut his first record, ‘An Original Break’, in 1990 on the Liberty Grooves label as the rapper in Solid n Mind.

    Solid n Mind was a partnership between Jonny F and Whirlwind D, and would go on to record two other 12” singles, ‘Centre Stage’ and ‘Battle Tipped Rhyme’. In the mid 90s, D relocated to the South Coast (having grown up in London) and played at various venues such as ‘The Brook’ in Southampton. He emceed for various crews such as The Firin’ Squad and Funk Fuzz, before taking a break to focus on a career in teaching.

    By 2002, D was getting itchy feet and decided to pursue a career in music journalism, first writing for Undercover Magazine, in which he had his ‘Rhyme Travel’ column which, as the title suggests, was all about Old School Hip Hop. He earned the nickname ‘Rhyme Traveller’ as a result and even recorded a track for one of the magazine’s Undercover Cuts CDs. From here, he penned a number of other regular Old School Columns in magazines ranging from fanzines such as ‘Ethics’ to big music mags such as ‘Record Collector Magazine’ where he currently resides.

    As well as magazines, D has contributed to a number of books on the subject including ‘Freddy Fresh Rap Records Volume 2’ (where he wrote part of the intro and provided much of the information on UK hip hop), to the Rare Record Price Guide. He is also a contributing editor for the Diggers With Gratitude website.

    Having qualified as a Head Teacher in 2007, D decided to step back from his role in teaching, focusing first and foremost on his family, but also on spending more time on the topic he so loves….hip hop. Rumour has it that D will be back with some new recordings very soon…..

    What’s this? Real hip-hop on a real radio station?!

    I’m looking forward to this becoming a regular slot Dudley! I just wish I was close enough to Kane FM’s transmitter so I could actually tune in the real way with my FM dial. I’ll have to get down with the kids and listen online!

    Props to WD and Kane FM for making this happen.
