L.S.D. (short for Legally Spread Dope).
From Germany (a small town near Cologne).
The group consisted of Producer Future Rock, V.O.C. Ko Lute and DJs Rick Ski aka Black Vinyl Master and Defcon.
In 1991 they released their first and only album on the local independent label Rhythm Attack Productions (R.A.P.):
„Watch Out For the Third Rail” is arguably one of the most complete and classic albums in the history of German rap. A true hip-hop masterpiece that is still unmatched in it’s intensity, raw power and sample madness. Influenced by the Bomb Squad, Ced Gee and tons of underground recordsthat are today labeled as „random rap”, L.S.D. were on a mission to define their own sound and their own vision of what hip-hop meant to them.
Armed with a prehistoric set-up (a Commodore 64 and a Yamaha TX16W Sampler) L.S.D. dedicated a whole year of their lifes to record „Watch Out For The Third Rail” and parted ways soon after it’s release.
