The Animal Pharm - Pharmaceuticals... (The First Exploration EP)

Debut EP from The Animal Pharm, released in 1996 on one of the most underrated labels, Good Vibe Recordings. I had recently picked up the Dj Drez - Dr EZ's Cool Fantastic 12" which was my introduction to Good Vibe. A week later I noticed this tape on the Atak website, it was cheap and on Good Vibe so I decided to take a chance and I've been a fan ever since. Unfortunately the crew didn't release much more music, but what they did release I've been fortunate to track down. Good Vibe continued to release good music for almost a decade, but for me this will always be the first release that comes to mind when I think of the label.

Bizarro - Arts & Crafts

Debut tape from Living Legends member Bizarro. When this tape came out in 1997 it was really hard to find. Despite the Legends having mail order available on their website, and generally being well ahead of most underground acts when it came to the internet and making their music accessible, certain tapes were hard to come by. I was never able to find an original of this tape, I settled on a dub I got in a trade and eventually found a rip that sounded better than my dub. Enjoy
