Beek Throwback Track of The Week: ABC – Be Near Me

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys

Click Here for Cocaine Cowboys 2: Hustlin’ with the Godmother

Listening to this track you can just imagine the 80′s Playboys popping in the cassette, popping bub, doing mad beeks and swooping fly 80′s girls.

ABC-Be Near Me

Seems like the singer might have got his hands on some first generation beans as well from the lyrical content.

Some good hip-hop samples in there as well.

Cool “Disco” Dan is the original Go-Go graffiti artist. Seven was really the first big hip-hop graffiti artist in DC.

Cool “Disco” Dan Washington D.C. Legend, Interview

Cool “Disco” Dan Washington D.C. Legend, Interview that I donated to the While You Were Sleeping bedtime Stories video. I shot this interview in 1996 or 1997 down on F Street where Dan sat and sold Go Go tapes. If you don’t know what go go is, he describes it in the video as “urban tribal music”. Dan himself is a D.C. urban legend. Everyone here knows of him, the washington post wrote articles on him and the djs on the radio used to make “your mom has been around the blcok so many times” jokes that used cool “disco” dan as their punchline. I shot this in super 8 film whichmakes it even cooler.

The eighties were a peculiar time in the history of the nation’s capital. Even before Mayor Marion Barry was caught on camera smoking crack, D.C. had acquired a nasty reputation as the most dysfunctional city in America. “The United States’ political headquarters is fast becoming the murder capital of the U.S., with more than one killing per day,” London’s Daily Telegraph told readers in 1989, “It is infested with drugs the streets are patrolled by an army of beggars the city is corrupt, inefficient and extremely dangerous.”

The D.C. of newspapers, however, was not always a version that residents recognized. In their new film, urban culture expert Roger Gastman and music video director Joseph Pattisall take on the loaded questions of how bad the nation’s capital really was and why. Blending exclusive interviews and archival footage, these Washington natives aim to offer the most comprehensive portrait to date on this critical decade. The development of Go-Go, D.C.’s distinctive style of urban music, racial tensions, sensationalist media, crack and corruption, will all be important pieces of this story.
