Each week in the Street Tips section of the mag was a page called Wicked Pulse. In all honesty I never really paid much attention to this page as I never had any idea what the records were they were talking about. The only time I recall to there being anything hop hop related was a Steinski interview which I've unusually lost and the page below on 1986 DMC Champion DJ Cheese with the final few paragraphs covering the final briefly. I've also put a page from the main mag below the DJ Cheese page which again briefly covers the 1986 championship.
Issue 20 was the last issue I was able to get my hands on. I've no idea if there were any issues after this one, all I do know is that despite searching I could never find one and the magazine was sorely missed by myself and no doubt hundreds of others. I'm sure if there were any more issues someone will hopefully point it out. In this final issue Chuck Chill interviews Grandmaster Flash and does his weekly 'Electro/Soul Report' together with the usual news, reveiws and weekly chart.
In this issue we find Chuck Chill chatting to Aleem as well as doing his now regular 'Electro/Soul Report' column. Also included were the usual reviews, news and weekly chart.
An Original Concept interview this week from Chuck Chill and some kind words from him regarding the UK scene at the time. The usual reveiws, news and chart included.
