What’s up folks…..another installment of Mixtape Mondays comin at ya!
In honor of this Friday’s event “Flavors 7” 90’s party at The Echoplex in Los Angeles, brought to you by Footlong Development, I thought it would be appropriate to post up this particular mix of J.Rocc‘s ‘East Coast Flavors’ that is also printed up on a limited edition cassette mixtape (which you can buy at Amoeba’s). On this mix is all the classic 90’s Hip Hop joints that you will be hearing at the party.

What’s up folks….hope y’all had a good Halloween weekend.
I’m back with another installment of Mixtape Mondays…..we did a press release that we’re going to have our own channel on Dj Skee’s new Dash Radio app that has been already in effect the last 2 months (go to www.dashradio.com to hear what’s going on or you can download the DashRadio app for your IPhone & Android) in November. We won’t announce the official launch of the Beat Junkie Radio Channel unti we are truly ready to launch it….be on the look out.
For the meantime, in honor of our upcoming relaunching of Beat Junkie Radio, here is an old episode from our Ustream show that we used to broadcast from J.Rocc’s crib and sometimes our old Beat Junkies recording studio, back in 2009….this is different from our 1993/94 96.7FM KWIZ show. This particular mix is the audio portion of episode 9. If you want to watch the old episodes, you can go to www.ustream.tv/channel/beat-junkie-radio
It’s a 2 hour mix broken up into 2 parts, with J & myself playing anything we want at that time on some “don’t give a f*ck” steeze. The vibe might remind you on some Friday Night Flavas/Wake Up Show/Stretch & Bobbito Show steelo……enjoy!
What’s up folks…..back with another installment of “Mixtape Mondays”. This time, we have our very own D-Styles in the spotlight.
Besides having membership in the Beat Junkies and the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, D is also a core member of the world renowned LA-based Low End Theory crew with Daddy Kev, Gaslamp Killer, Dj Nobody, & MC Nocando. They are known for presenting and pushing new progressive music such as Flying Lotus, Ras-G, Odd Future, & more at their weekly spot in Los Angeles.
This mix is was made specifically for one of the Low End Theory’s Japan Tour a year or two back, which features futuristic hard knocking beats, seemless mix transitions, & exquisite scratches done in a way that only D-Styles can do. Sit back, listen, & enjoy the ride!
You can catch D & the rest of the Low End Theory crew at The Airliner every Wednesday night in Los Angeles!
What’s up folks….
Yes, another installment of “Mixtape Mondays”. Today’s feature is an old classic mixtape from the Funky President, J.Rocc. This particular mix is called “4 Track Chaos” in which this mix is reminsce of Dr. Dre‘s legendary Roadium Swap Meet Mixtapes. It’s called 4-Track Chaos for a reason because he did this on a Tascam Cassette Recorder and did a multi-track intro. And yes, the mix came out on a Cassette!!! Enjoy!
What’s up folks….it’s another installment of our Mixtape Mondays series. This month’s entry is a little ditty by the one & only Dj Melo-D. If you know our background as Dj’s, growing up in Los Angeles, the Junkies pretty much listened to alot of Techno/Electro Hip Hop in the 80’s, especially listening to the KDAY Mixmasters, Uncle Jamm’s Army, The World Class Wreckin Cru, The Glove, & many more. In this quick mix, Melo just gets busy over classic songs like Numbers, Planet Rock, & Surgery just to name a few……Get your popping on & enjoy the mix. Oh yeah…..for all you Djs & our record pool subscribers, you can pick some of these gems in our Digital Record Pool =)
Whats up folks…..
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!
