Disco Kryptonite.

"Jam On It (Special Remix)" - Newcleus

These guys started out as Jam-On Productions in Brooklyn, New York and they grew to be phenoms because of their block party success in 1979. These block parties were held outdoors in neighborhoods and the power for the DJ's sound system was ripped off the street lights most of the time. This song has been said by many to have been way ahead of it's time in terms of production techniques in 1984 and it brought in a new era of hip hop. Alvin & The Chipmunks wished they were this funky. Superman gets his ass served again in this track too. It had previously best been kicked by The Sugarhill Gang in, "Rapper's Delight". This mix runs 7:57.
