This weekend is the 2015 NAMM Show at the Anahiem Convention Center, so if you are a Dj, Producer, Musician, you know about this convention. And if you’re going to the convention, you need to go check out the special performance by Q-Bert, D-Styles, & Shortkut aka the Invisibl Skratch Piklz. They’re performing at 6pm outside at the Pioneer DJ Venue Stage.
If you are a true Invisible Skratch Piklz fan, you don’t want to miss this rare performance.
What’s up folks….it’s another installment of Throwback Thursdays. In honor of the official Invisibl Skratch Piklzreunion at A-Trak’s Fool’s Good“Day Off” Party at the Shrine Auditorium in LA this Sunday, October 12th, I thought I post up one of the best Dj battles in the history of mankind…..The Xmen vs ISP.
This happened at the first ITF World Championships during the 1996 Rock Steady Crew Anniversary. Babu & myself competed in this battle, but THIS was the hightlight of the event….this was litterarlly the “Clash Of The Titans”. They broke up it into 2 parts, solos & teams. Both catagories were incredible and both crews were going all out with new techinques & routines. I remember watching this battle in person and the energy in the place was crazy!!!
On the Xmen side: Roc Raida (RIP), Rob Swift, Mr. Sinista, Total Eclipse, & Diamond J. For ISP: Q-Bert, Mixmaster Mike, & Shortkut.
This is the team battle…..remember folks, this is 1996……these skills are still relevent in today’s times…..always timeless, always classic! Enjoy!
Thought I would start something in the same vein as our “Throwback Thursdays” Video Series….this time, it’s “Mixtape Mondays”. During these segments, I’m going to post up some of old & new mixes from the crew, as well as the homies, & other mixes that I think that they’re dope. If you’re at work or just cleaning the house, just press play & hopefully you like our latest blog series.
Our first mix is from Shortkut, in honor of him & the Triple Threat DJs competing in the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash this Wednesday (Oct. 1st) at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. This recording is from his live set from The Boiler Room TV audio/visual show……Enjoy!
