ESG – Ocean Of Funk

9pm its the #ClassicWednesday Pick of the Week. ESG w/ his freshman release, Ocean Of Funk, released in 1994, this Solo produced masterpiece changed the game in Houston. It had a budding young DJ, by the name of DJ Screw slowing down the single Swangin N Bangin at the end.

This was the first time I had heard of DJ Screw, and I remember having a tape deck duct tape to my handlebars of my bike and i used to swang up and down the block when I was 14. This album really helped create our Houston culture and E’s ahead of his time flow can be heard in the freestyles and raps of many Screwstonians to this day.

We are proud to annouce that ESG is one of our headliners at our Official SXSW showcase this year, Saturday March 15th at 512 Rooftop.
