“The Artful Dodger (ADee) and King of the Beats present a Limited-Edition art piece − The 1985 Shaw Theatre Jam − for the first time on vinyl, with only 300 copies pressed!
The Shaw Theatre Hip-Hop Jam was a landmark, monumental event for Hip-Hop culture in the UK. It was the moment when legendary New York artists (DJ Red Alert, MC Lisa Lee, aerosol writer Brim, etc) came to the UK and shared a stage with some of the best exponents of the culture (London All-Star Breakers, DJ Cosmic Jamm, The Supreme Rockers, The Cookie Crew, The Chrome Angelz, etc) that the UK had to offer. The Americans were shocked and surprised at how advanced and how strong the culture was here.
King of the Beats prides itself on documenting true Hip-Hop culture and important moments of its journey. This is your chance to own a very special document that comes with the following;
− The Shaw Theatre Live Hip-Hop Jam on Vinyl!
− Original Art Cover (the back of each cover will feature original spray-painted artwork by the legendary ADee, so each sleeve will be like a mini original canvas; meaning no cover will be the same!)
− A 20-page Booklet looking at Hip-Hop culture from that era in the UK
− Double-Sided Poster
Real Value for money. Now this is what we’re talking about!”
