Uncle Jamm's Army: Pioneers of the Modern Party

Highly Recommended.

At the birth of hip-hop and electro in Los Angeles, Uncle Jamm’s Army started out playing high school parties in the mid-70s, and went on to become LA’s most popular dance promoters for over a decade. Founded by the legendary Rodger Clayton, along with an extensive and evolving crew of DJs including Dr. Funkenstein, Chris “the Glove” Taylor, DJ Bobcat, Arabian Prince and Egyptian Lover, and Ice-T on the mic, freaks of all styles and affiliations packed out their parties at huge venues like the Los Angeles Sports Arena.
Along with the L.A. Dream Team and Uncle Jamm’s rivals from across town, Alonzo Williams and Cli-N-Tel of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru, these artists created a blueprint for electro and rap that continues to resonate in all forms of dance music today.

Featured artists include Jeremy “G-Perico" Nash, Egyptian Lover, Arabian Prince, Adrienne Clayton, Alonzo Williams, Gid Martin, LA Dream Team, Battlecat, and Ice-T
