6-7-10: A Little Bit Hip-Hop, A Little Bit House — The Early Days of Baltimore Club

June 6, 2010 at 11:11 am 4 comments

Some styles of music are inseparable from the cities in which they emerged. New Orleans has zydeco. Washington D.C. has go-go. Baltimore has Baltimore Club.

One local music writer has decided to write a history of this gritty, eccentric style of dance music. Al Shipley has written about club and other styles of music for City Paper and his two blogs, Narrowcast and Government Names. Now he’s at work on a book called Tough Breaks: The Story of Baltimore Club Music.

Tom Hall talks to Al about how it all got started back nearly 20 years ago. Also joining the conversation is DJ Booman, who’s been putting out club music since the early days.

Special thanks to DJ Booman for remixing the end of this segment into a club track!
