NEW VIDEO: INSIDE RHETTMATIC’S STUDIO! “RHETT GOT BEATS”

Dj Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies has been DJing for well over 20 years. A Dj champion, member of The Visionaries, Crown Royale, the Cypress Junkies and the Dirty Disco Squares, Rhett has been producing for just about the same period of time, creating backdrops for artists from Aloe Blacc to Ras Kass on well over 50 releases.

And now it comes time for the OG staple of the West Coast to step out with his own full-length instrumental project. May 19th, 2017 you will find out, if you didn’t already know, that Rhett Got Beats. At 18 tracks beatin’ down the block, with a bonus feature from Hieroglyphics’ Opio and Pep Love, this will fit nicely in your Street Corner Music collection.

In this video footage, Rhettmatic is in his home studio, which he calls it the “Sound-O-Matic Lab”, playing beats (old & new) from all the various machines that he uses to produce with: the classic E-MU SP1200 & the Akai MPC2000 Drum Machine Samplers as well as his current production tool, Propellerhead’s Reason Software. You can actually hear the progression of his production throughout the years with each music equipment, even with some beats that he forgot that he made.

FREE MIX: DJ RHETTMATIC – “THE WEDDING MIXER” VOL. 2.5 (SIDE A)

What’s up peoples…..

It’s been a hot minute since I posted up on the Beat Junkie blog, but better late than never, right??

Next Friday (2/20/15) is the Wedding Mixer 2 Dance Party that I’m doing in conjuction with Footlong Development at The Echo in Los Angeles, with my man, the legendary Mad Skillz. This week, the official follow up to my Wedding Mixer Vol. 2 mix came out this week: Volume 2.5 on a Cassette Mixtape….yes, a Cassette Mixtape! The good peoples at Fat Beats was kind enough to press up a limited amount of the mixtape….this is for the real tape collectors. You can purchase them at Fat Beats: http://www.fatbeats.com/products/rhettmatic-the-wedding-mixer-2-5-cassette or you can purchase them at the event.

But don’t fret, in honor of the mixtape & the dance party next week, here’s is a FREE DL of Side A of Volume 2.5. On this particular volume, I get down on some of the stuff I grew up in the 80’s, Electro Hip Hop, Latin Freestyle/Dance Music & Miami Bass Music….basically I did an “Aqua Net” set. Hopefully this mix brings back memories of Hair Spray, Baggy Pants, Members Only jackets, etc. Hope you like what you hear….I’m definitely going to play some of these gems next week. Hope to see y’all there!

NEW MUSIC: RHETTMATIC – “RHETT’S LAST BEAT OF 2014”

What’s up folks….

First of all, I like to say Happy New Years to everyone….hope your New Years Eve was a meaningful one.

I made this beat on 11pm, December 31st & wanted to post this up here on our Beat Junkie blog. This is actually my last beat for 2014…I always try to make a beat before Midnight strikes on New Years Eve. I’ve been doing this ritual for the last 7 years…had to try to do it again & not break the streak…LOL!! I decided tp post the finished product on the morning of Jan. 1, 2015 on my soundcloud page. Hope you like my quick ditty. Happy New Years Everyone!
