Almost fifty years ago, in a brick building in New York, a 16-year-old changed the way of making a party forever.
Clive Campbell, a.k.a. DJ Kool Herc and his sister Cindy threw a party in their brick building's "Rec Room", matching beats and vinyl on a record player in what is now known as the very first DJ booth.
It was August 11, 1973. This date is conventionally recognized as the birth of Hip Hop Culture.
1520 Sedgwick Avenue, the Bronx. New York City, of course.
In that period there was a completely new cultural ferment. New York, the cradle of a generational energy that was coming to life in its streets.
The world around the young people was difficult, so they let the music vibes save them.
Enjoy that atmosphere with this building, dance on the beat of The Incredible Bricko Band and be part of something unique.
Let's celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop culture, fraternity, inclusion, love and good vibrations.
Bring your Minifigures to the party!
I tried to keep it as simple as possible, some features are from before the renovation of the building, others after (black door frame instead of the original white). I chose between them just with aesthetic criteria. As so for the Minifigures "age".
"Back to school jam - a DJ Kool Herc party" flyer - Street green signs - Building address black sign - Exit green sign - Incredible Bricko Band "Bricko Rock" vinyl cover - Cindy C.'s trousers.
I really hope that you like it.
