BLVD. Mosse - All Praises Due To Outstanding - 1990

12" - 1990 - Scorpio  

If you want to grab a slice of Trenton Hip-Hop history... here is the debut 12" released by Blvd. Mosse on the New York-based label Scorpio in 1990. The wax is really cheap and really easy to find. The group was comprised of Outstanding a.k.a Out, DJ Plexx and D.J.L. hailing from the North section of Trenton, New Jersey. Out and Plexx were the core members of the group. After meeting in High School in '88, they musically bonded to become Blvd. Mosse because the Boulevard was their lounge !

Both tracks of the wax "All Praises Due To Outstanding" (LP Version / Dub Version & Acappella) and "Move To Something Funky" (LP Version / Instrumental & Acappella) were produced by the legendary Tony D (RIP). The best track of the 12" is "Move To Something Funky" which uses a sample of the song "Moment of Truthreleased in 1971 by Earth Wind & Fire.
