Our very own Shortkut has been selected to be the newest artist for Serato!
Peep out his new DJ Showcase using the new Tropkillaz track “One Time” that he helped produced!
“Seminal turntablist, selector and longstanding central force of DJing ‑ Shortkut has long-surpassed icon status. And so should the only member of not one, but three of the world’s eminent DJ crews: The Invisibl Skratch Picklz, the World Famous Beat Junkies and Triple Threat DJs.
Though his technical skills are legendary, what sets Shortkut apart is his versatility. Growing up in 1980s Bay Area, Shortkut (born Jon Cruz) drew from a rich array of musical influences, in particular the mobile soundsystem culture that was coming to a head at that time in the States. His sets are never dull or predictable, bringing in everything from hip hop, funk and soul to deep house, reggae and dancehall. He keeps both the turntable fanatics happy and the dancefloors heaving. And, as Shortkut understands better than anyone, that’s why the DJ’s there.”
If you have been following our group & individual social media links, we have been hinting of possible doing a radio show….well, sort of. As of today (Monday, February 2nd), The Beat Junkies have teamed up with Dj Skee‘s Dash Radio to officially launch the Beat Junkie Radio channel on the Dash Radio App. Yes, we got our own “Radio Station” playing mixes & music programming 24/7….who would’ve thought that The Beat Junkies have their own music channel. We’ve been working on this project for a good 5 months on making sure everything sounds good & the programming is tight as we can make it, along with getting proper drops & imaging.
To get the Dash RadioApp for your IPhone, IPad, Android, or Tablet, you can go to ITunes or Google Play & download it for FREE!

Bigups to Dj Skee, J-Love, Erynn & everybody at Dash Radio for their help & support.
Thought I would start something in the same vein as our “Throwback Thursdays” Video Series….this time, it’s “Mixtape Mondays”. During these segments, I’m going to post up some of old & new mixes from the crew, as well as the homies, & other mixes that I think that they’re dope. If you’re at work or just cleaning the house, just press play & hopefully you like our latest blog series.
Our first mix is from Shortkut, in honor of him & the Triple Threat DJs competing in the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash this Wednesday (Oct. 1st) at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. This recording is from his live set from The Boiler Room TV audio/visual show……Enjoy!

“It’s great to have a pool that keeps on top of new joints while giving the same attention to classics and deeper cuts from many eras and styles. The Beat Junkies Pool reminds me of the things I have in my own record boxes, as well as what I forgot about or didn’t even know. It’s The Beat Junkie sound, you already know!”
“There is no other record pool in the game providing its members quality digs, rare gems, and specially curated content like beatjunkies.com. It’s like uncovering your favorite DJ’s hidden crates, I feel like I score every time!”
