Jam Pony Express

For those who do not know who Jam Pony Express is… Here is a small introduction from Ozone Magazine, from September 8, 2005.

The year was 1981, and the streets of Fort Lauderdale were like any streets in a predominantly black lower-middle class area. Crack cocaine was introduced, gangs and crews fought for territory, and this new hip-hop phenomenon filled the air. Yep, Royal Palm was like any other hood. But you know the saying; there’s always that diamond in the rough, that chosen one who had enough talent to make it out, offer hope, and represent the block. In this case, it was two friends who found their outlet through music, moving the crowd with two turntables and a mic. This is the story of underground legends who carved their signature in Florida’s music culture: Jam Pony Express.

We were just having fun, DJ Slic Vic reminisces, grinning from ear to ear. M.B. had equipment, and I had equipment. We battled each other, and the next day we was Borring Records. But borrowing those records led to rocking backyard parties. After finding the right chemistry, Victor Austin and Marc Brown started DJing together. People around the way started to call them the Pony Express DJ’s because they would pull up to a party driving the Pony Express delivery truck. Marc’s pops use to work for Pony Express, a mail carrier company way before UPS. I didn’t like being called Pony Express but it just stayed with us, Slic Vic remembers. Shortly after, Pony Express became Jam Pony Express. Victor Austin turned into DJ Slic Vic and Marc became Mr. M.B.

After a few backyard parties DJ Slic Vic and M.B. decided to battle the popular CM Express DJ’s, which stood for the Cash Money DJs. We didn’t win, but we got exposure and folks started to recognize us, DJ Slic Vic explains. They had made a name for themselves, and people began to notice their unique DJing technique. We were the first to regulate a record, says DJ Slic Vic. Regulating a record was unheard of during that time. When you regulate a record, you cut the record down to change the lyrics of the song; then you say something and have the record answer you back. It was this call-and-response technique that had the crowd going crazy (and can still be heard all throughout hip-hop today). After the battle, the parties came by the dozens. Everybody wanted the Jam Pony DJ’s to rock their parties. People looked forward to the weekends because Jam Pony would set up outside at Sunland Park, Oswel Park or 6th Street (better known as the Ugly Corner) and play the sounds of MC ADE, Beat Master Clay D, Afro-Rican, and Jiggalo Tony. It was all hip-hop to us back then: bass music, break beats, and funk, Slic Vic remembers.

By this time, Jam Pony had added members like Spider D, Diamond Dick, Big Ace (R.I.P.), Zeke the Panty Raider Freak, Sporty J, Amazing Hot Rod, and Sporty Shawty. It wasn’t until member and party rocker Loc Cool Jock joined that Jam Pony Express took their tapes to the flea markets. Nasty Jeff and Loc approached a man who owned a car and rim shop, who agreed to sell the tapes as long as they’d plug the shop. The tapes sold out of the store on the first day. From there, Jam Pony began taking tapes to different flea markets, or flirt markets, as they liked to call them. Jam Pony tapes began flying off the shelves at 79th Street, Opa-Locka, 183rd St, and USA One. They couldn’t keep a Jam Pony tape in there, DJ Slic Vic laughs, referring to the Oakland Park flea market in Ft. Lauderdale that sold the first Jam Pony tape.

People simply had to have their Jam Pony tapes. They were addictive, and people became fiends. Sales became so ridiculous that Slic Vic’s father built a door directly to his sons bedroom. Every time the phone rang, it was for me, says Slic Vic. Every time they answered the door, it was for me. My mom told me that as soon as I was old enough, I’d have to leave! At 18, he moved to the Parkway section of Ft. Lauderdale. He produced ten tapes a day: specialty tapes, custom-made tapes, and regular mixes, selling them for $10 to $25 each. He made a killing in the early 80′s. I was making about $500 a week just in Ft. Lauderdale, and $1000 every other week in Miami! The tapes quickly spread throughout Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, and even as far as Germany thanks to friends in the military.

But what made these tapes so hot? Why did everybody need a Jam Pony tape? It was NEW! They’d created a new style of DJing by regulating the records so precisely, with style and finesse. Jam Pony made DJ’s become entertainers, and the crowd wanted to be entertained. For example:

Get Your Roll On by Big Tymers Regulated by Slic Vic of Jam Pony Express DJ’s:

Jam Pony Express had more flavors then Lifesavers, Zeke Freak comments. DJ Slic Vic was the voice of the crew, always heard but never seen. Loc Cool Jock was the clown, always making the crowd laugh, and bodyguard Big Ace (R.I.P) was the hype man. Jam Pony became so entertaining that promoters would book them as an act. Promoters wouldn’t know what to do with us. We had so much control of the crowd that people wanted to see us perform, but we weren’t rappers! In the midst of this misconception, Jam Pony Express DJs dropped their first album, The Legend Continues, in [1995]. The LP was dropped on H-Ski’s Tampa-based record label, Express Records, which was a subsidiary of Bass Style. Bass Style later evolved into 2-4-1 Entertainment in 2001. [In 2003], the label released Rated R’s album Ghetto Psychic last year through Universal, and is currently creating a buzz with the Evenin’ Ridahz. It’s two DJ’s for the price of one: Jam Pony Express and Bass Style DJ’s, plugs DJ Slic Vic.

You might have even heard of Jam Pony Express and didn’t know it. Just listen to the hooks of some popular Southern songs, and there’s a chance Jam Pony came up with it first. To the window, to the wall! Check out the vinyl label above, copyright 1995, long before Lil Jon and the Ying Yang Twins had everybody screaming Skeet, skeet, skeet, god damn! Or what about, Hold up, wait a minute, let me put some bass up in it. Jam Pony! Feel the funk all in ya trunk. Jam Pony! All those Ooooo-kkkkks! and super-crunk Yeaaaaah!s on record? Jam Pony! They’re so influential and underrated when it comes to Southern hip-hop, it’s ridiculous. They’ve been Florida’s best-kept secret for nearly two decades!

Welcome To Jam Pony Express DJ’s!

Welcome to Jam Pony Express DJs! We have created this website for the purpose of fans of Jam Pony Express DJs. Unlike other websites, we are doing it all digital. We all hate waiting on shipping processes, because it can take anywhere from a few days to about week, just for us to get what we want in the mail.

So, what is the difference between the original CD and digital album? Really, not that much of a difference. Other online stores may tell you their CD’s are originals, but in fact, 99% are CD-R’s. If you bought 2 or more of the same copies from the other websites and compared them to each other, I can guarantee they’ll be 2 separate CD brand names. The only ones who have the originals are the members of Jam Pony Express, and I’m sure their families have them, as well.

What does that mean for you? Simple! Less waiting and more listening! Once you purchase the album of your choice, you will be sent an e-mail to the paying Paypal address. Within the e-mail, there will be a download link. All you do is download it, or save it to your computer, and choose to burn it to a CD-R, or transfer it to a MP3 player, or more. There’s no more worrying over how long until you receive the disc in the mail, and no more worrying about whether the disc will be lost or scratched. For more information about the payment process and how to get started getting your albums, please visit the “How It All Works” page.

What if you purchase the album of your choice and the download doesn’t start? PLEASE, contact us, if this happens! We want to make sure you receive your item, because if you’re not happy, then we’re not happy (simply put). In the near future, we will be making more changes of how this works. So, for now, it’s only temporary. We have tested the process, before going public, and it works fine for us, but you never know when something might go wrong.

Another bonus by choosing us to shop from us, instead of somewhere else….We are cheaper than any other place on the market. We make it more affordable for people looking for classic Jam Pony Express CD’s, and to relive the memories of the greatest DJ’s around. We only charge, because 1) websites aren’t free, and 2) the time it takes to find the tapes or CD’s, rip/convert them, edit, upload, and post.

What’s even better about choosing us to shop from is we continue to expand the collection and to keep Jam Pony Express alive. We would like to be able to bring to you any Jam Pony Express DJs CD that was ever made, or try our best to. Since there’s so many out there, it’ll take some time, but we want to try our best to have as many as we can. We put the money earned from this website back into it, in order to keep the website growing and bringing you more.

One last note… if you’re unsure of the difference between Regulated Mixes and Non-Regulated Mixes, the Regulated Mixes have DJ talk on them, where they are cut and have talk over the songs. Non-Regulated Mixes are just Jam Pony Express mixes without DJ talk over the songs, but are still Jam Pony CD’s. We have mostly known Jam Pony Express DJs for the Regulated Mixes, but a Jam Pony tape was a Jam Pony tape, back in the day.

We hope you enjoy the albums we post, and we look forward to your business in the near future, as well. Be sure to add us to your favorites, or bookmark us, to be able to come back to us, when you need to.
