THROWBACK THURSDAYS (VIDEO): THE D-STYLES SEXTET – A NIGHT AT THE KNITTING FACTORY (11/1/02)

What’s up folks…..

Wanted to post something up in honor of the term “Throwback Thursdays”. These particular video footages are from D-Styles“Phantazmagoria” Album Release Party at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood on November 1, 2002.

A couple of things that made this night special: It was the first time that ALL 6 of us (D, Short, J, Babu, Melo, & myself) had performed together as a band, it was the release of D’s first solo album as well as making history as one of the first Scratch Instrumental album (all the music was made by scratches via multi-tracks) of it’s kind, & this event took place 2 days after the death of the legendary Jam Master Jay. As Babs said in the video “We’re performing songs written, produced, & composed by D, from his album ‘Phantazmagoria’…..it’s a real special night for us…it’s a groundbreaking album that D’s putting out….we’re just members of his band.”

Walk down memory lane with us & enjoy the footage……
