Tank Fly Boss Walk, new from Johnny Dynell


The recent Netflix release of STYLE WARS (the Eighties graffiti documentary) features JOHNNY DYNELL's first record - the 1983 classic JAM HOT - throughout. This track included Johnny's signature rap, an homage to the taggers and breakdancers of that fabled era in NYC: "Tank, Fly Boss, Walk, Jam, Nitty Gritty" and the rest of the "Boys From The Big Bad City." 

The JAM HOT rap has had an extraordinary 30 years in the popular culture, including sampling by NORMAN COOK (BEATS INTERNATIONAL) on the 1990 U.K. #1 "DUB BE GOOD TO ME" and worldwide fan interpretations on YOUTUBE. Johnny's first release of 2014, TANK FLY BOSS WALK is his Hip House/Tech House reworking of the rap, out 1/15/14 on ENDLESS NIGHT MUSIC. 

TANK FLY BOSS WALK is dedicated to original JAM HOT producer MARK KAMINS, who died in 2013.
