    who do you think is good at scratching

    There was a brief window where this was the pinnacle of battle DJing. Noize juggling 2 different vocals like this "I'm number one" / "And you wanna step up?" / "Sucker DJs" / "Suck my nuts". This routine even got pressed on vinyl. Strange time.

    who do you think is good at scratching

    For juggling, Mista Sinista and the Xmen in general were incredible. Again, always inventive but still musically coherent. Not just about speed or dexterity for dexterity's sake.

    who do you think is good at scratching

    Babu is always clean and musical. Compared to the more technically adventurous style of Tony Vegas here... This is the era where is seemed to split and people went more towards using the physically tricky styles instead of focussing on the feel and rhythm like Babu does.

    gimmie your best/worst: UK hip hop/rap

    Yeah. The default for a lot of UKHH is "serious business". Perhaps as a pre-emptive defence against being accused of not being "real" or whatever? So in the late 80s / early 90s that meant shouting over sinister offkey strings and breakneck drums. Then in the mid-90s it transformed into that...

    UK Soul : Soundsystem Classics

    Yeah - the First Word Spotify playlist is just labelled "UK Soul", rather than Street Soul. So that's why it has stuff like that early FlyLo track with Andreya Triana, Amy Winehouse and Jai Paul. It's a collection of UK Soul voices. Like Andrew Ashong on that Theo Parrish track.
