Various Artists – The Wild Bunch

Typical set by the '80s Bristol sound system that predated Massive Attack, mixed by original DJ Milo

Trending Now

The Wild Bunch are sometimes claimed to be trip hop’s source, due to influential sets at Bristol’s legendary dive/club The Dug Out, mixing reggae, hip hop, disco and funk, and members’ subsequent careers?Nellee Hooper with Soul II Soul, others with Massive Attack. But the late-night, risky mixing of races and records at The Dug Out can’t be revived by archive tape of its crowd, and this is mostly mediocre old-school hip hop, with only 1987 Wild Bunch single “The Look” (in fact by just Milo and Hooper) suggesting future greatness.
