About Delicious Vinyl:
The brainchild of Los Angeles DJs Matt Dike and Michael Ross, Delicious Vinyl is a crucial label in the evolution of hip-hop. Late-’80s chart-topping hits from Tone-Loc (“Wild Thing”) and Young MC (“Bust A Move”) took innovative underground grooves to the masses. After Matt Dike’s departure in 1992, co-founder Michael Ross signed now-classic acts The Brand New Heavies, The Pharcyde, Born Jamericans, and Masta Ace, advancing the Delicious Vinyl legacy into the millennium. This year, Delicious Vinyl celebrates its 20th anniversary with no sign of slowing down. As The Brand New Heavies (with original lead singer N’Dea Davenport) tour in support of their new album Get Used To It, dancehall lothario Mr. Vegas has one of the summer’s biggest singles with “Hot Wuk.” In the history of innovative, thought provoking, and truly funky music, Delicious Vinyl continues to stand out.
