6 July 2016, No. 159, DJ Grand Wizard Theodore, ‘Subway Theme’

“You gotta write, you gotta do the action, man. You know, you gotta go out there and rack up…and be called an outlaw at the same time.” In that brief New York moment when no wave and hip-hop overlapped, we got moody little grooves like No. 159, the instrumental “Subway Theme” from the movie Wild Style. I prefer the documentary Style Wars, but I don’t think anyone ever released a soundtrack for that one.
