On this day, August 28th 2009, we lost the incredible DJ AM. In rememberance of our brother and all of his contributions to the art form and the DJ community, here is a tribute from our very own DJ Melo-D in honor of one of the greatest to ever do it on the 2 turntables. Rest In Peace Adam Michael Goldstein aka DJ AM.
Recorded at the Beat Junkie Institute of Sound in Glendale, Ca. #DJAM #Turntablism #BeatJunkies #BJIOS #DJ #Serato #PioneerDJ #Mixars #QSCAudio #FluidAudio #Shure
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.
Our very own Dj Babu & his son Nikobeats were featured on the NBC LA Channel 4‘s “Life Connected” series in honor of Asian Pacific Heritage Month. They were interviewed during the official Grand Opening of the Beat Junkie Institute Of Sound in Glendale this past April. Thank you to Hetty Chang for the interview!

“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!”
