WOW… Did. He. Bleach… All. That? *DEAD* In other news, classic break! Pretty Purdie’s drumkit in my opinion was made for hip hop because he was a minimalist. Fuck an overdone solo, get it in!

I hope Mr. Bliss realized that he’s appreciated by us beatheads worldwide.
I didn’t know Bernard “Pretty Purdie” played that classic break! Peace and props to him as well.Got to give it up to Ced Gee for blowing the dust off of ‘Synthetic Substitution” in the Ultra lab and putting all of us up on one of the illest breaks of all time. If you listen to the entire song and the lyrics Mr.Bliss put down, you would find it’s an ill RECORD too. R.I.P. Mr. Melvin Bliss!
