Finally, the Stones Throw Funkster, Dam-Funk releases his 1st official single from his upcoming album “Into The Light” on Stones Throw Records. It’s called “We Continue” and this funk ditty does not disappoint. Peep the goodness below & pre-order the album on ITunes or Stones Throw when it drops September 4th!
Out of nowhere, the Funky President drops this 32 minute cassette tape banger, full of J.Rocc‘s beats! Only available on cassette tape + digital downloads on Stones Throw Records: http://www.stonesthrow.com/store/album/jrocc/beats-on-tape
“J Rocc rolled though Stones Throw HQ a couple weeks ago and said he had a new beat tape. We threw it on, played it once. Then again. And again. A couple weeks later and it’s out. That’s how easy these things can happen sometimes.
Beats on Tap(e) is a cassette release, with digital download. For now, it’s exclusively at stonesthrow.com. The album is 19 tracks, running 32 minutes. We’re not sure who the guy on the cover is.”
Peep out one of the tracks from J’s beat tape called “Fire Dancer”
We like to wish a big Happy Birthday to the guy who practically started the Beat Junkies. Yes, today is J.Rocc‘s birthday! If it wasn’t for J’s dream to always wanting his own crew & giving us a bunch of “Green Lantern” rings from his old Comic Book job for us to rep, who knows what we would be doing right now, and you wouldn’t be reading this from our website….LOL!!
If you see the Funky President, make sure you wish him a Happy Birthday….and maybe get him some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups & an Arizona Green Tea. Happy Birthday J!
