Boombox: Early Independent Hip-Hop, Electro and Disco Rap 1979-82


Soul Jazz Records’ new ‘Boombox’ features some of the many innovative underground first-wave of rap records made in New York in the period 1979-82, all released on small, independent, often family-concern record companies, at a time when hip-hop music still remained under the radar.

This collection celebrates these first old-school rap records, bringing together rare, classic and obscure tracks released in the early days of rap. Deluxe double CD-pack comes with slipcase, 40-page outsize perfect-bound booklet, extensive notes, exclusive photography and original label artwork.
