Whodini – Escape (LP Blue Vinyl Reissue) [Music On Vinyl 2020]

The second studio album by the hip-hop group Whodini was a critical and commercial success upon release, being the first hip-hop album to chart within the U.S. top 40. “Five Minutes of Funk” and “Freaks Come Out at Night” became their first legitimate hits in their home country. Recorded at Battery Studios in England, Escape has a countless amount of memorable lines and productions. This album is smooth funk and pretty much the point of funk’s origin in hip-hop music, which later made a long-lasting relationship between hip-hop and funk. The beats here are simply excellent and in the rapping department, the group is really great.

Available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on transparent blue vinyl.

Whodini – Whodini (LP Red Vinyl Reissue) [Music On Vinyl 2020]

Hip hop group Whodini released their self-titled debut album in 1983. It’s one of those hip hop classics which is a must-listen for every fan of this genre. The “Magic’s Wand” peaked at number 11 on the Dance Club Songs and “The Haunted House of Rock” at number 27 in the same chart. The first one featured on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’s in-game Wildstyle Pirate Radio. They made this commercial electronic hip hop album while the music was shifting very fast, so they added an R&B twist to their music.  Although Whodini hailed from New York the LP was produced by Conny Plank, the famous German music legend, known for his early work for Kraftwerk, Ultravox, Devo, and more pop-rock artists.

The album is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on transparent red vinyl and includes an insert.
