We love this photograph uploaded to the People’s History of Pop by Martin Jones. It features the Wolverhampton B Boys Breakdance Crew in 1985 with their trophy from an ‘All Dayer’ dance event.
Can you spot the Drum and Bass legend in the photograph?
Check out this great video of the Wolverhampton B Boys battling Coventry rivals Future Shock on children’s television show Saturday Starship in November 1984.
Fun Fact: The classic B-boy track ‘The Mexican’ was originally recorded by the British prog rock band Babe Ruth. It is considered by some as one of the most influential songs in hip-hop and breakdancing culture.
You can read more about the track in the The Stories Behind the Songs article published in Classic Rock Magazine in May 2012.
