THE ARCHIVE-DOUG E. FRESH TRIBUTE 01.10.05
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
We return with our first new show of the year ….its actually the last show of 2004 that was never posted (due to the holidays and vacation). There will be an official first show of the new year coming next week. Shout out to Cliff Monroe…
THIS WEEK ON THE ZRO HOUR we salute hip hop's first and original human beat box DOUG E. FRESH. DOUG E. FRESH is an innovator and represents an integral component of Hip Hop culture. Born in Barbados, Doug became known in the early eighties at clubs and block parties in Harlem and the Bronx for his unique expression of Hip Hop. For many, his first appearances on record and film ("The Original Human Beat Box", 1983 Vintertainment records and the movie "Beat Street") solidified their curiosity. The success of the FAT BOYS, with Buffy on the beat box, did not distract Doug's fans. He cemented his place in history with the classics "The Show" and "LA DI DA DI" with Slick Rick, Chill Will, and Barry Bee comprising the Get Fesh Crew. Shortly after parting ways with Slick Rick, he followed with the album "OH MY GOD" in 1986. The album produced the hits "All the Way to Heaven" and "Play this Only at Night". His successive albums include "The Greatest Entertainer" 1988, "Doin What I Gotta Do" 1992, and "Play" 1995, generating the singles, "Keep Rising To The Top", "Bustin' Out", and "Freaks" w/LIL VICIOUS respectively.
Today DOUG E. FRESH is still very active touring around the world and appearing in many collabos with current Hip Hop artists. He recently won the SOURCE HIP HOP PIONEER award this past December. Doug is possibly the most consistent and beloved figure within Hip Hop that has transcended its beginnings yet still remains true to the essence of his own creativity. Not many "Old School" artists can still command a crowd or level of admiration from their peers that Doug retains. Log on and check out THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER!
