It’s been a while since we did a “Watch The Sound” video but we’re back with another episode. This new video features our very own Dj Shortkut, as he reflips a classic Mantronix record. This is a beat juggling/scratch routine that Short rarely does…..if you’re able to catch him on some of his live shows doing this, you’re lucky. Now we’re able to bring it to you. Enjoy!
This Saturday, December 3rd is the first Boombox of 2015. To kick off the new year, our very own Dj Shortkut & Oakland Faders/The 45 Sessions selector Dj Platurn will be playing a special Native Tongue tribute, along with residents Inka One, Ben Diggin, & Analog. All happening at The Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown (Downtown LA). For all your De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brother fans, this is the place to be!
And speaking of James Brown…..Friday, December 26th, if you’re in the Bay Area, make sure you check out Grand Total, the James Brown Tribute at The Parliment in Oakland. Our very own Shortkut, Oakland Faders‘ own Dj Platurn, & Dj Swang are the selectors for the night. If you want to get down & have a funky good time, this is the place to be!
Been a hot minute since I did a Tapedeck Tuesdays. Since Shortkut is djing with the legendary Diamond D & The 45 King at The 45 Sessions at Mighty in San Francisco this Friday (12/19), I thought it would be cool to post up his 90’s Hip Hop Video mix he did a few years ago in honor of the event. “Video Mix?!”…..yeah, Short does an incredible job of taking the original Hip Hop videos and putting into a mixtape format. Check out all the classic vides by your favorite 90’s Hip Hop artists.
