    Starting out in the 1970’s, Grandmaster Flash made waves on the New York scene as one of the hottest DJs around, thanks to his inimitable mixing style. Expanding his act to incorporate a team of talented MCs, Flash soon caught the eye of Sylvia Robinson at Sugarhill Records, leading to an impressive run of ground-breaking singles.

    Tracks such as ‘Freedom’, ‘The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel’ and ‘It’s Nasty’ were successful club records, all leading up to their mainstream chart breakthrough, ‘The Message’ (UK #8) in 1982.

    Although Flash departed in 1983, the band continued with Melle Mel at the helm and enjoyed further UK top 10 hits with ‘White Lines (Don’t Do It)’ (UK #7) and ‘Step Off’ (UK #8), as well as eight other Top 100 entries.
