Our very own Beat Junkie Record Pool Ambassador & Toronto legend Dj Grouch of the mighty Turnstylz Crew along with his associate Dj Ritz have made a new mix joint for you to light one up! It’s called the “Up In Smoke” Mixtape.
Our very own Rhettmatic was featured today on Bonafide Magazine, a trendsetting music/culture magazine website from the UK. He did an exclusive mix for the website called “Rhettmatic x Bonafide Beats”aka “Flavors From Beatjunkies.com” Vol. 3.
“22 years on and the group shows no sign of resting their hands. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2012, they’ve opened up their Record Pool which allows people to buy their own exclusive Beat Junkie approved edits. And of course there’s this DJ Rhettmatic mixtape, exclusive to Bonafide, – Flavours from BeatJunkies.com Volume 3, is, as you’d expect, the dopeness.”

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 been 13 years since the 9/11 attack……a lot of lives have been lost & affected since that faithful day.
In honor of 9/11, I thought I post up this particular song from my group, The Visionaries, which the title of the song is aptly called “Nine Eleven”. The backstory of this song is that it was actually made on that faithful date: 9/11/01. After the fall of the New York Twin Towers, the fellas (2Mex, LMNO, Dannu, Key-Kool, Lord Zen) felt inspired to go straight to the studio & to record a song, to get all their emotions out after watching too much media coverage. I added scratches the day after. The outro vocal on the end of the song belong to my man D-Smooth, who was a producer, the A&R for Up Above Records, & a New York native. We thought it was appropriate for him to get on the song and say a little something since he was there when it happened. This song is featured on the album, “Pangaea”.
We, the Beat Junkies, would like to salute to all the men & women, all the families, all the firefighters that were affected on 9/11. God Bless You All……
You may have noticed in recent months that we’ve been very active on social media with our videos and merchandise. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes for quite some time….we know that you’re curious to see what the Beat Junkies have been up to. Well folks, here it is……..
We’d like to welcome you to our newly designed, revamped website. It took us awhile to restructure, as we’ve been working very diligently for well over year to get everything ready. As you can see, we are back with a sleek new design along with several new additions to the site….but for the most part it’s business as usual, Beat Junkie Style!
One of the new features here at beatjunkies.com that we are proud to share is the Beat Junkies Digital Record Pool. Yes. The Beat Junkies started an mp3 record pool, personally curated by us for the DJ community and music enthusiasts alike. Collectively, we decided to combine our experience as DJs and tastemakers to provide a quality music service for DJs apart from existing record pools in the industry. As avid record collectors, we are definitely looking to fill in the gaps and share some of our most prized vinyl records with the public – custom edited in a DJ friendly format exclusively for you! Our digital record pool is a monthly subscription service, and was carefully designed for Professional DJ’s looking to expand their collection and deliver quality multi-genre DJ sets.
