Spanish hip hop


Spanish hip hop

Spanish hip hop music began in the late 1980s. Break dance crews used mainly American recordings, while local rappers practiced for very small underground audiences. A few rock bands, like Os Resentidos, Kortatu and TDK tried and recorded some approaches to hip hop music, but kept most of their hard rock background.

In 1989 Troya Dscs&Rcrs label released the first Spanish hip hop LP: "Madrid Hip Hop", a compilation of four bands from the province of Madrid: DNI, Estado Crítico, Sindicato del Crimen and QSC. The record presented two cuts of each band.

Later in 1989, Ariola major label tried a new push to establish some hip hop stars, with a new compilation of Madrilene hip hop music: "Rappin Madrid", introduced more soloists and groups, like MC Randy & D.J. Jonco.

Both attempts mostly failed, but helped to establish a viable scene in Madrid.

The most important places of Spanish hip hop, apart from Madrid, are Barcelona (7 Notas 7 Colores, Sólo los Solo, Falsalarma); Zaragoza (Violadores del Verso), Seville (SFDK, Toteking, La Mala Rodríguez) and Málaga (Hablando en Plata, Triple XXX).
