Various Artists – Classic Elements (Seattle 1998)

Here’s an underground hip hop compilation from Seattle, Washington. It was put out by ‘Impact Entertainment’ in 1998. The record label was actually based in Olympia, Washington where there is a small but prolific scene. Props to Eden, Cody, Jim, Doug, Max and all you other mothafuckas keeping underground hip hop alive up there in the people’s republic! This one was mastered by Mark Greer and Dj Sayeed at ‘Bandit Audio’ in Olympia, WA. It’s interesting for me to come across this cd and compare what I knew about local hip hop then to what I know now. It’s a long shot but if anyone out there has some live recordings of ‘The Rat Pack’ I’d kill to hear them again!


01 (05:33) ghetto children – hip hop was ?
02 (04:12) jaleel – call it like i see it
03 (03:17) troubled sums – konfessions
04 (05:18) source of labor & beyond reality – aunt anna
05 (04:45) soulstice – norvus ordo seclorum
06 (04:13) arson – back home
07 (05:15) sinsemilla – sleep
08 (06:12) nobody – a.n.i.t.a.
09 (04:07) bedroom productions ft. blak – black n blind
10 (04:29) 5E – paradox (remix)
11 (04:52) ski – from bullets to poetics
12 (03:58) tilson – a little better
13 (05:19) black anger – third eye
14 (03:42) jace – what’s ya defenition
15 (03:41) blak – only when i’m high
16 (04:55) nomad – sadistic flow

Many of these artists were featured on other Seattle compilations released in the mid/late 90’s. Give me some feedback and I’ll keep coming at ya with that northwest flava.
