AUDIO: DJ TEEKO – “RAP FREAK” VOL. 5 (THE SEARCH FOR VOL. 1-4)

Turntable Virtuoso Dj Teeko comes back with some hard hittin music called “Rap Freak” Vol. 5.

“Vol 5 was created in 5 days immediately after watching the highly recommended “Radio That Changed Lives” Documentary of Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito. The inspiration was fueled by this amazing documentation of hip hop at its rawest state. This collage was created using only a turntable and records.”

AUDIO: INVISIBL SKRATCH PIKLZ – “CLASSICAL MOOG” (RED BULL 20 BEFORE 16)

Our very own D-Styles & Shortkut along with the incredible Dj Q-Bert are some of the members of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, one of the dopest DJ crews in the world. They’re finally dropping a new album called “The 13th Floor”. Their first official single just dropped, courtesy of the Red Bull Music Academy.

“The phrase “legends in the game” gets chucked around a lot, but there really isn’t any other way to describe the Invisibl Skratch Piklz.  The crew captivated the attention of a generation in the early 90’s with their fast-evolving definition of Turntablism.  Recently, the current incarnation of the group consisting of Dj Q-Bert, D-Styles, & Shortkut hit the Red Bull Studios in Tokyo to record the first Piklz album in 20 years.  The same trip included an appearance at this year’s Red Bull Thr3estyle World Finals, as well as taking part in a Guinness World Record-breaking Team Scratch routine with the Finalists – their heirs from around the world.  “Classical Moog” is a exclusive peek at three truly inspirational pioneers coming full circle into a new era of technique technology”

Bigups to our big brother Dj Jazzy Jeff for having our very own Rhettmatic & Melo-D featured in his new episode of “Vinyl Destination”:

“Shenanigans at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles leads DJ Jazzy Jeff to the Beyond Wonderland Music Festival in San Bernardino. Along with Z-Trip and the Beat Junkies the collective shut down the festival at the end of the night. This sentimental performance marks the end of an era for DJ Jazzy Jeff as he embarks on a new vision for the future.

After a week of the new change, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the crew hit the road to Portland. In route to the show they run into an issue with transportation. After some negotiating, they are on the their way to test out DJ Jazzy Jeff’s new DJ super hero super powers, along with comedian JB”

Bobbito and DJ Stretch Armstrong
Bobbito and DJ Stretch Armstrong

There was standing room only Monday night at the Regent Theater, the night hip-hop curators and ambassadors Bobbito and DJ Stretch Armstrong premiered “Radio that Changed Lives,” a documentary about the duo and their radio show that did indeed do just that. Beatjunkies.com and The5thElementmag.com provided event coverage.  The film features interviews from Big L, Nas, Jay-Z, Wu-Tang Clan, Biggie, Eminem, The Fugees, Souls of Mischief, Busta Rhymes and many more, before they were celebrities, as they recall moments at the WKCR studio at Columbia University. Stretch and Bobbito pioneered a platform that served as a launching pad for artists, and inspired future radio show gatekeepers, like Sway and King Tech. Hit the jump for all the special coverage we got and a link to stream the film.

VIDEO: THE RETURN OF THE INVISIBL SKRATCH PIKLZ – PRESENTED BY REDBULL

Yes….the stars have been aligned!!! It’s the return of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz! The Grandmixer himself, Dj Q-Bert, along with our very own D-Styles & Shortkut are part of legendary DJ dynasty who’s roster that also includes the incredible Mixmaster Mike, the talented Dj Apollo, Dj A-Trak, just to name a few.  Peep out the video below and the rest of the documentary here: http://www.redbullthre3style.com/article/return-invisibl-skratch-piklz

“DJ LEGENDS! The Invisibl Skratch Pikilz have reformed after a twenty year hiatus to record a new album and perform at the Red Bull Thre3style world finals in Tokyo, Japan.

 
Regarded as music’s most influential turntablist crews, the trio behind ISP – QBert, Shortkut and D-Styles – are respected members of the extended Thre3style family, having performed and judged at events across the world.
 To create the new record, the group set up shop at Red Bull Studios in Tokyo in spring this year, where they crafted the LP over the course of a week.
 Fans will get to see the ISPs perform the album (and probably some old favourites) when they perform at the Thre3style grand final on September at Tokyo’s Sound and Vision museum.
 
For the first time ever, the event will be live streamed via redbullthre3style.com bringing the energy of the competition in to people’s homes. 
 
Shortkut, D-Styles and Q-Bert also star in an awesome web series the Japanese team have worked on which shows them hard at work on their first LP in two decades.”

AUDIO: SHIFT ALL-CITY MIX by RHETTMATIC, FREE THE ROBOTS, & PLANN B + SHIFT SAN FRANCISCO

Our very own Rhettmatic as well as his comrades Free The Robots & Plann B have released a special mix in honor of their Shift parties that they have been doing for the past 6 years in both  at The Crosby (OC) & Escala (LA). In the last month, they took their Shift parties on the road to Palm Springs, Las Vegas, & now San Francisco (this Friday, Sept. 4th).

unnamed-1

The good people at Okayplayer World Premiered the mix this morning!

“We tried to put together a mix that would sound exactly like a typical night inside Shift…basically an hour of heavy musical ADD. I think we nailed it.” That’s how Plann.B describes the new hour-long, three-part SHIFT All City mixtape, a joint venture that has him welding his talents to those of Free The Robots and DJ Rhettmatic. In 2009, the three DJs conspired to create a new enterprise that doled out hip-hop, soul, futuristic funk and electro in a format that pulled no punches and honored no idols; a beat music free for all lead only by their brainiac techniques. 6 years on, Shift is as vital as it’s ever been and has filled massive rooms alongside the likes of Dam Funk, J. Rocc, House Shoes, Soulection and more.

Summer 2015 has Rhettmatic, Plann.B and FTR taking their show up and down the West Coast, with shows booked in Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more. Below, Okayplayer very proudly presents a free new mix designed to be a “thank you” for all the support Shift has gotten from the scene. “This is exactly what a night at Shift might sound like,” Plann told us. “Enjoy this wild mishmash of boogie, disco, glitchy, experimental beats, breaks, future bass and hip hop.”

It is our great pleasure to announce our official collabo with Acrylick Clothing.

Project Intro
Acrylick is proud to announce our collaboration with The Beat Junkies. This internationally respected and recognized group of DJ’s have entertained and inspired many, including our brand personally. The achievements of this group are plentiful, and continue grow. Working with a group this highly respected, and influential is an honor.

Originally formed in 1992, The Beat Junkies have each established themselves as extraordinary DJ’s individually through various projects and achievements. Together, they created an unstoppable group, with a distinct style and sound that has been emulated by many, but never duplicated. In an ever-changing and often faux industry such as music, The Beat Junkies have continued serve as a perfect example of success stemming from hard work, and staying true to thecraft. The group continues to evolve, stay active, and remains dedicated to art, sharing it with others through music and other outlets. The work ethic and quality emitted, responsible for their success is also a lifestyle that should be applied by others looking to take a similar direction of longevity and quality. Their contributions to DJing, Turntablism, and Hip Hop culture will continue to inspire future generations.

Our capsule will feature 2 pieces curated by The Beat Junkies, and designed by us at Acrylick. Each graphic will be closely tied and referenced to the music, which is obviously deeply rooted in both of our brands. The end result is one that we are proud to release, with a vibe and aesthetic synonymous with both Acrylick and The Beat Junkies Lifestyle.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

The Beat Junkies logo was recreated using the audio format that made the mixtape famous. Each of the typefaces seen on the tapes were curated by The Beat Junkies. All cassettes combine to create The Beat Junkies lantern logo, giving the cassettes a new life. This theme was chosen the show the strong influence music, and the variety of genres that create the infamous Beat Junkie sound. Both brand names lastly scroll on top and bottom, finishing off and complimenting the highly detailed graphic.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Taking inspiration from an infamous collaboration in Hip Hop history, we intend to make our own impact showing that two similar brands can excel together. Ruthless records and Priority were part of early gangster rap history. Its formation produced and distributed music that changed not justmusic, but the world, creating a culture still seen today. We respect the movement created, and the aesthetic used on this shirt pays homage to the idea that two groups can combine to be successful in making a lasting impact.

REST IN PEACE: SEAN PRICE & DJ SWIFT ROCK

Hip Hop got hit big this past weekend as we lost 2 individuals who made a mark in the Hip Hop community.

Saturday, August 8th, the world lost an incredible Emcee….the legendary Sean Price aka Ruck from the group Heltah Skeltah & the Boot Camp Clik. He is one of the most consisted & respected MC in the game & has classic joints under his belt. Not is he only a great lyricists, he was a straight dude with a flair of comedy. He is survived by his wife Bernadette & 3 children, including his daughter Shuan P. If you want to donate to his fundraiser, you can  go here: https://www.crowdrise.com/seanp

This morning (August 10th), the Dj/Turntablist community lost one of it’s own. The 1998 Vestax World Champion & San Francisco’s very own Dj Swift Rock of the Supernatural Turntable Artists. Swift Rock was ahead of his time during the heydays of the “Tablist” Era. He was a Beat Juggle innovator that other DJ’s tend to mimick his style. Even 3x World Champion Dj Craze said that “Swift Rock was one of the cats that scared him” when he was coming up. Swift was not only an incredible DJ, he was also incredible human being.

Salute to both Sean Price & Dj Swift Rock….we will miss you both!

VIDEO RECAP: DJ JAZZY JEFF’S “PLAYLIST RETREAT 2015”

It is an organic exchange between people who believe in the greater purpose of expression through music.

Our very own Shortkut was asked to participate in the seminar (& we’re pretty jealous that we’re not invited…haha). Congratulations to Jeff for pulling this incredible private event. Peep out the video to see what it’s all about and catch who was in the retreat.

AUDIO: THE BEAT SOCIETY LA SHOWCASE (2014) w/ JAKE ONE, MARCO POLO, KEV BROWN, & RHETTMATIC

Peace Everyone….

It’s been a hot minute since I posted up on the Beat Junkies Blog….

just recently found this live recording audio of when I participated in the Beat Society LA Showcase in 2004…listening to this recording had me buggin out and brought back memories. This featured beats by Jake One, Marco Polo, Kev Brown, & yours truly.

Let me backtrack a little…..Some of you might be familar with the Beat Society Producer Showcase, some of you might not. For me personally, this is the one that started it all with the producer showcase genre, in terms of having established & upcoming producers at that time. This showcase was the brainchild from Philly producer extraordinaire Hezekiah along with the help from the indy label Soulspazm. Beat Fanatic head honcho Slopfunkdust was also instrumental in connecting the dots. The event was always hosted by Stef Tataz & Sao. And almost every producer that had a name or just getting a buzz has graced the stage: Kanye West, Nottz, Illmind, Exile, 9th Wonder, B!nk, Oddisee, & many more.

The showcase event would always feature 4 producers playing their beats live off their respected machines, as well as having well known MCs rock over their production, plus a sample challenge round where each producer would have to flip a sample that the committee from the Beat Society has chosen…The event was mostly based in the East Coast, primarily Philidelphia.

In 2003, it was the first time that the Beat Society Showcase ventures out West, specificially Los Angeles at the Knitting Factory. There, they had Dj Khalil, Illmind, Hezekiah, & the Dilated Junkie himself, Dj Babu. I had the honor of spinning music in between. What was also monumental, Dilla & Madlib were in the house chillin in the background peepin out the event.

In 2004, they had another Beat Society LA showcase (again at the Knitting factory), but this time, they asked me to participate as a producer. I was very honored, and to tell you the truth, I was hella nervous. “Why?” you ask? Well, I had to share the stage with some of my favorite producers who happen to be also my friends: Jake One, Marco Polo, & Kev Brown. To be on the same stage as these heavyweights had me shook….haha! I had alot of pressure, (1) because I was repping the hometown and didn’t want to let Los Angeles down and (2) the general public didn’t really know me as a producer; I was known more for being a DJ/Turntablist and I wanted to showcase my production to the public.

When you listen to the audio, you can hear each producer’s individual style and what equipment they were using: Jake had the ASR-10, Marco Polo & Kev Brown had the MPC 2000XL, & me…I had the MPC2000 & the Technics 1200 (yeah, I brought my set up at that time…lol). You can tell I was really nervous…haha. Also, when you listen to the audio, you might be familiar with some of the production that we played that night, especially Jake’s production of De La Soul‘s “Rock KoKane Flow” & WWE’s John Cena‘s wrestling intro song “The Time Is Now”. I played beats that would eventually make onto the Visionaries‘ 4th album “We Are The Ones”.

All in all, I had a great time sharing the stages with these guys, bonding & cracking jokes, & showcasing my beats. And it was a great feeling when my peers who I am a fan of their work gave me my props as a producer that night….that meant alot to me. I am honored to be featured & be part of this historic moment of the Beat Society history.

Bigups to Hezekiah, Jim at Soulspazm, Slopfunkdust, Sao, Stef, Jake, Marco, Kev, Casual, Akrobatik, Mr. Lif, Thearapy aka Paten Locke, Prince Po (Organized Konfusion), Black Silver, OhNo, Dj Romes, Dj Khalil, Chace Infinite, SA-RA, & to the listeners…..enjoy this time capsule moment.

NEW MUSIC: THE BLACK OPERA – “SACRED COW”

The Black Opera collective continues to drop joints from solo & group efforts. With TBO members Magestik Legend & Jamall Bufford dropping new material individually, this time the TBO collective joins forces to drop a new group material. In an era where the idea of justice remains in question, these questions linger as well: Who can you trust? Who can you believe in? Those questions apply to “the system” and to rap music in 2015. Sacred Cow is The Black Opera’s way of answering those questions.

NEW MIX: DEVIL’S PIE SOUL PRESENTS PHARRELL TRIBUTE MIX – Mixed by RHETTMATIC

It’s been a minute since I posted up on our blog….I figured it’s a special reason to…lol.

In keeping up the tradition of giving the gift of music in honor of my birthday today (May 10), I’m releasing a mix that was originally intended for my friends Dj Sean O & Dj Phatrick, who throw a monthly event in Los Angeles called “Devil’s Pie Soul”, which is held currently at Lock N Key in Koreatown. The basis of their parties are usually built around the theme of paying tributes to musical artists.

Last month, the guys asked me to DJ their event and it was my first time spinning at Devil’s Pie. They asked me if I wanted to do a set that’s dedicated to Pharrell & the Neptunes and I said I was with it. We tried to record the mix live that night but for whatever reason, we technical difficulties in the first 15 minutes into my set. I actually like what I put together that night, so I decided to take the same songs I played that night and kinda re-created my set…..so here’s the mix that was inspired from that night. Pharrell & the Neptunes have such an extensive catalogue, that it was impossible to fit everything on my mix…but I am hyped that I included the Clipse‘s first actual single “The Funeral” in the mix….that’s my sh*t!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the mix….and this is my thank you to everyone that have supported me, my music career, & my crews & affiliations. Thank you as always….Salute.

If you listen to Beat Junkie Radio, you would know that J.Rocc has the “Praise Be” show on Sunday Mornings playing Gospel on the funk/dance/boogie tip.

The one you’re about to listen to is his official show on 90.7FM KPFK in Los Angeles every Sundays from 10pm-12am called “Adventures In Stereo”. You can also listen on www.kpfk.org. This is where J gets busy & plays everything…and we mean EVERYTHING!! This is not your typical Hip Hop Radio Show….this is for the open minded music lovers.

Peep out the 3rd episode below featuring Belgium’s Finest…Dj Lefto! And remember to peep out Adventures In Stereo every Sundays on KPFK.
