Isolation Playlist # 9 - Craig ’Bully’ aka Uceefiv

Isolation Playlist # 9 - Craig ’Bully’ aka Uceefiv

A very special playlist this week comes via Manchester OG Craig Bully aka Uceefiv aka Hip Hop Craig!  A permanent feature on Manchester's legendary gauntlet of Oldham St record stores, Craig's a leading authority when it comes to early electro, street-soul, hip-hop, rap and much more he's definitely not letting onto.  It's written into the city's folklore that the lads from Vinyl Exchange were once seriously worried and feared the worst one Saturday morning when Craig didn't show at the shop, breaking a 30 year plus ritual of raiding the quid bins EVERY week without fail.  This kind of dedication has hardened him into a walking Discogs database, seeking out information in the cracks where the internet can't reach, especially when it comes to super localised / regional scenes.  On top of all that he's one of the nicest guys around.. peep the list!
