THROWBACK THURSDAYS (VIDEO): DJ MELO-D ON TURNTABLE WIZARDRY 2 (1997)

What’s up peoples….It’s been hard to keep with things when the holidays hit. I’ve been playing catch up as of late.

Anyways, here’s another installment of Throwback Thursdays. Today, I’m featuring my Beat Junkie brother, the one & only Dj Melo-D. Melo is definitely one of the bests to do it and sometimes very underrated compared to all our contempories out there. He’s always flawless with the cuts, scratches, beat juggles, & mixes….very precise yet funky. ¬†Maybe I’m just biased cause he’s in my crew….LOL!

Peep his solo scratch performance off the Turntable Wizardry 2 video (it was on VHS) that came out in 97. Crazy!

Enjoy!
