Our big brother The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff recently collaborated with some of your favorite artist and producers to create an album at his house in 7 days!
When Jazzy Jeff hit’s your line, you make sure to answer the call. This was not your ordinary studio session where the artist has a few months to create and record and release. In the intro video, you hear Jazzy Jeff explaining that they are going to write, produce, record, mix and release a couple days after the completion of the project. R&B artist Glenn Lewis is the albums lead vocalist and will add his flavor to each track!
Jazzy Jeff said that some of the music that is out these days doesn’t give you goosebumps when you hear the track, so the idea of this project is to chase those goosebumps.
Chasing Goosebumps is available now and ready for you to listen and feel those goosebumps.
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”

This past week, the Magnificent one…Dj Jazzy Jeff threw a special private seminar retreat with some of the best & brightest Djs/Producers/Tastemakers at his own crib (talking about having a house like Uncle Phil). The Playlist Retreat 2015 is an intimate gathering of progressive artists for the purpose of inspiration, motivation and collaboration. 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.
