Here’s another live set from the OTH archives, this time from People Under The Stairs from November 2000. This was on during their tour on the back of their second album Question In Form Of An Answer. I’ve taken this from a promo cassette that was given out at one of the nights.

Here’s a couple of clips that’s been found on Youtube from Off The Hook’s 1st Birthday all dayer event at a club called Union One in Derby, UK. Props to MrKD for putting these up.
DJ Cash Money (and that’s Cappo at the start of the clip)
Here’s a recording from March 2002 of Souls of Mischief live at Off The Hook at Union One, Derby. The Hieroglyphics crew do a lot of effing and jeffing so I would advise not to play this in front of the chirren.

In 2000 J-Squared, Dave H and Gidge started a hip hop and funk night in Derby which played host to plenty of underground acts and DJ’s from the UK and US such as DJ Cash Money, Scratch Perverts, Jeru The Damaja, The P Brothers, People Under The Stairs, The New Mastersounds and a whole lot more. Have a look at the flyers on Flickr.
Seeing as it’s been 10 years this month since Off The Hook started I thought I’d share some stuff from the OTH archives. On this one, we’ve got Rodney P and DJ Plus One, with a good party hip hop set, making a last minute appearance. I’m not sure who’s on the mic during the first bit of Plus One’s set getting him to do rewinds and all that but it sounds like Brian from The Cronxxx.
Stay tuned for more Off The Hook related posts throughout the week.

Here is a classic mix CD that was released in 2001 from DJ Gonorstein, showcasing a collection of late 80s hip hop, funk, disco and more. There’s no tracklisting for this but it includes tracks from 45 King & Latee, Average White Band, BB King, MC Bam Bam and lots more. This is one of my all time favourites. Make sure to check out Gonorstein’s blog linked below as he’s got plenty of mixes on there that are strictly on the connoisseur tip – all highly recommended.
