VIDEO: MASS APPEAL’S “RHYTHM ROULETTE” w/ DJ BABU

The Dilated Junkie himself, Dj Babu, is featured on new episode of Mass Appeal‘s “Rhythm Roulette” video series.

“On this episode of Rhythm Roulette, we’re joined by 1/3 of Dilated Peoples and member of the World Famous Beat Junkies, DJ Babu. Many don’t know that along with being a highly skilled battle DJ (known for his legendary “Blind Alley” beat juggle), the ITF champion also gets it in on the production tip. From Super Duck Breaks to The Beat Tapeseries, Babu crafts hip hop shit that knocks, while managing to be progressive at the same time.

We took the Beat Junkie to the Record Jungle outside of Los Angeles to play a game of Rhythm Roulette. After that, we headed back to his studio to put your boy to the test. After listening through all three records, Babu took a joint from The Association’s Stop Your Motor album, threw it on his AKAI MPK49 and got to work.”

THROWBACK: DILATED PEOPLES & CHALI 2NA AT FAT BEATS 1999 (VIDEO)

In honor of The Word Of Mouth 2014 Reunion Tour, we had to post this video up of Dilated Peoples & Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, courtesy of our good friend Dj Eclipse of Halftime Radio Show/La Coka Nostra fame.  This was shot at Fat Beats NYC during the 1st Word Of Mouth tour in 1999.

This is what Dj Eclipse had to say about the clip:
“Since Dilated & Jurassic are back on tour together and hitting NYC this weekend I figured I would post this clip from the last time they were on tour together back in 1999. This footage is from a Dilated Peoples in-store at Fat Beats NYC on the day that they were doing their New York stop on the “Word Of Mouth” tour. August 11, 1999. The bill was Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, Beat Junkies and me, DJ Eclipse. The venue was Tramps, home to some of the illest shows NYC had seen in the 90s. The interesting thing about this show was that it was the last show Tramps had before it closed down. Some footage from that night to come.”

Tonight (August 3rd, 2014) is the last show of The Word Of Mouth 2014 Tour at the House Of Blues Boston.  Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm sharp!  Don’t miss this show….it might be a long time that you’ll get to see this whole line-up perform & tour together….don’t sleep!
