UK - 1991
Our UK Street Soul retrospective ended up with an obscure 1991 record from the UK hip-hop group Construction (just Upload on our YouTube channel).
This track is an hybrid between Street Soul and Britcore, of course from UK the Britcore is a subgenre of Hip Hop which stands for British Hardcore Hip Hop. The genre was way faster than “usual” hip hop often about 110 130 bpm and based on funk breaks and often using samples from movies. Towards the mid 90s the support for the scene in the UK decreased and to the end of
the 90s the Britcore scene all over Europe was nearly not existing anymore with hundreds of production (mainly on independent labels) felt into the obscurity.
ISR brings back to life this little gems which perfectly feet the soul vibe of the twin movement UK Street Soul.
