Parisian Rap Radio from 1988 c/o Sidney Duteil/ Dee Nasty [REMASTERED]

Scroll down to content


This rare recording features a short segment from Rapper Dappers Snapper with Sydney, a show presented by the legendary TV presenter Sydney/ Sidney/ Patrick Duteil and DJ JP on Radio 7. Sidney presented one of the first TV shows featuring Hip-Hop, ANYWHERE on the planet. He had Bambaataa, Futura and even Madonna on the show back in the mid-80s! The rest of the tape is from Radio Nova, with ZULU KING Dee Nasty dropping serious 88 classics, some of his own Latin Rascals type productions, and even a recording of a megamix taken off a Kiss FM show courtesy of Kool DJ Red Alert [Where he plays the famous hard to find mix of I Know You Got Soul, remixed by DJ Mark the 45 King].

For the record, French Hip-Hop culture goes back, there is a history that goes back way way further than MC Solaar. This is bloody obvious to French heads but not somethin fans outside of the country might be aware of. When I associate anything French and Hip-Hop I think of Z-3 MC’s, and the French National Anthem. I think of Melle Mels’ oh si raffine rhymes on It’s Nasty; ‘I tour around the world to make the people dance, and here’s a little message for the ladies in France. Je m’appelle, Melle Mel Donne moi la petit mademoiselle’. I inevitably remember Une Sale Histoire, and Beside on Change The Beat alongside Fab 5 Freddy. And Tribe 2, also on Celluloid Records. I think of photographer & MTV presenter Sophie Bramly, and the Spraycan Art imagery of Paris in the mid-80s featuring Crime Time Kings, Mode2 & Bando. AND NATURALLY, I remember the Zulu King, DJ Dee Nasty. DJ Dee Nasty - Radio Nova Paris 1987 or 1988 [REMASTERED]

If you are French and from the era of these tunes, you’ll know the history of French Hip-Hop and Rap and you’ll probably know all about the radio stations that broadcast the sounds of des rues.

FYI. I’m Irish, I speak English and Italian [Neither with any class], I dont speak a word of French and tbh im not a huge fan of listenin to rhymes in any other language other than English. But this Dee Nasty tape I’ve had since 1988 [not 85 as noted], and due to it’s sonically captivating troves, it is unquestionably one of my favourite radio tapes from over the 4 decades I’ve been amassing them.
