It’s been a hot minute since I posted up on the Beat Junkies Blog….
just recently found this live recording audio of when I participated in the Beat Society LA Showcase in 2004…listening to this recording had me buggin out and brought back memories. This featured beats by Jake One, Marco Polo, Kev Brown, & yours truly.
Let me backtrack a little…..Some of you might be familar with the Beat Society Producer Showcase, some of you might not. For me personally, this is the one that started it all with the producer showcase genre, in terms of having established & upcoming producers at that time. This showcase was the brainchild from Philly producer extraordinaire Hezekiah along with the help from the indy label Soulspazm. Beat Fanatic head honcho Slopfunkdust was also instrumental in connecting the dots. The event was always hosted by Stef Tataz & Sao. And almost every producer that had a name or just getting a buzz has graced the stage: Kanye West, Nottz, Illmind, Exile, 9th Wonder, B!nk, Oddisee, & many more.
The showcase event would always feature 4 producers playing their beats live off their respected machines, as well as having well known MCs rock over their production, plus a sample challenge round where each producer would have to flip a sample that the committee from the Beat Society has chosen…The event was mostly based in the East Coast, primarily Philidelphia.
In 2003, it was the first time that the Beat Society Showcase ventures out West, specificially Los Angeles at the Knitting Factory. There, they had Dj Khalil, Illmind, Hezekiah, & the Dilated Junkie himself, Dj Babu. I had the honor of spinning music in between. What was also monumental, Dilla & Madlib were in the house chillin in the background peepin out the event.
In 2004, they had another Beat Society LA showcase (again at the Knitting factory), but this time, they asked me to participate as a producer. I was very honored, and to tell you the truth, I was hella nervous. “Why?” you ask? Well, I had to share the stage with some of my favorite producers who happen to be also my friends: Jake One, Marco Polo, & Kev Brown. To be on the same stage as these heavyweights had me shook….haha! I had alot of pressure, (1) because I was repping the hometown and didn’t want to let Los Angeles down and (2) the general public didn’t really know me as a producer; I was known more for being a DJ/Turntablist and I wanted to showcase my production to the public.
When you listen to the audio, you can hear each producer’s individual style and what equipment they were using: Jake had the ASR-10, Marco Polo & Kev Brown had the MPC 2000XL, & me…I had the MPC2000 & the Technics 1200 (yeah, I brought my set up at that time…lol). You can tell I was really nervous…haha. Also, when you listen to the audio, you might be familiar with some of the production that we played that night, especially Jake’s production of De La Soul‘s “Rock KoKane Flow” & WWE’s John Cena‘s wrestling intro song “The Time Is Now”. I played beats that would eventually make onto the Visionaries‘ 4th album “We Are The Ones”.
All in all, I had a great time sharing the stages with these guys, bonding & cracking jokes, & showcasing my beats. And it was a great feeling when my peers who I am a fan of their work gave me my props as a producer that night….that meant alot to me. I am honored to be featured & be part of this historic moment of the Beat Society history.
Bigups to Hezekiah, Jim at Soulspazm, Slopfunkdust, Sao, Stef, Jake, Marco, Kev, Casual, Akrobatik, Mr. Lif, Thearapy aka Paten Locke, Prince Po (Organized Konfusion), Black Silver, OhNo, Dj Romes, Dj Khalil, Chace Infinite, SA-RA, & to the listeners…..enjoy this time capsule moment.

The Funky President just posted up the new episode of his radio show “Adventures In Stereo”, every Sunday nights from 10pm-12am PST on KPFK 90.7FM. This past Sunday (5.10.15), J.Rocc brought in his fellow Beat Junkie & Dynamic Duo partner Rhettmatic to do a special set, being it was his birthday that night. Peep the goodness as they play everything that they think is dope….As J.Rocc would say, “We are not here to play classics, we’re here to make them….”
It’s been a minute since I posted up on our blog….I figured it’s a special reason to…lol.
In keeping up the tradition of giving the gift of music in honor of my birthday today (May 10), I’m releasing a mix that was originally intended for my friends Dj Sean O & Dj Phatrick, who throw a monthly event in Los Angeles called “Devil’s Pie Soul”, which is held currently at Lock N Key in Koreatown. The basis of their parties are usually built around the theme of paying tributes to musical artists.
Last month, the guys asked me to DJ their event and it was my first time spinning at Devil’s Pie. They asked me if I wanted to do a set that’s dedicated to Pharrell & the Neptunes and I said I was with it. We tried to record the mix live that night but for whatever reason, we technical difficulties in the first 15 minutes into my set. I actually like what I put together that night, so I decided to take the same songs I played that night and kinda re-created my set…..so here’s the mix that was inspired from that night. Pharrell & the Neptunes have such an extensive catalogue, that it was impossible to fit everything on my mix…but I am hyped that I included the Clipse‘s first actual single “The Funeral” in the mix….that’s my sh*t!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the mix….and this is my thank you to everyone that have supported me, my music career, & my crews & affiliations. Thank you as always….Salute.

Today is February 10th….the 9th Anniversary of Dilla’s passing. In honor of their good friend J-Dilla, J.Rocc & Rhettmatic joined forces to do a impromptu 2×4 tribute mix. All done in one night. Put on your headphones, turn the speakers up, listen to it & turn it up! “Get Live With It!”
February is what we like to call “Dilla Month” in honor of the birthday & death anniversary of the one of the greatest (if not THEE greatest) music producer of all time….the one & only James Dewitt Yancey, better known to the world as the legendary J-Dilla. He was born in Detroit on February 7th, 1973 and passed away in Los Angeles on February 10th, 2006 due to complications to Lupus, a few days after his 33rd birthday & the release of his final opus, “Donuts”.
J.Rocc & Rhettmatic both have a special bond with Dilla. J was part of the circle of close friends when Dilla moved to Los Angeles, that included Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf, & Egon. J.Rocc is also the 3rd member of Jaylib, the collabo group of J-Dilla & Madlib. Rhettmatic eventually also became a part of Dilla’s LA’s circle of friends. Dilla personally asked Rhett to be his tour DJ for his European Tour (which actually turned out to be Dilla’s last tour ever) when J wasn’t available.
Both J & Rhett have done personal tribute mixes to their fallen friend over the years, but haven’t recently done one in a while….till now. This time, they decided to make another Dilla Tribute Mix….together. They basically planned to record an impromptu, inprovised 2×4 (2 person/4 turntables) mix…nothing pre-planned, video archive the live session, see what happens, pick the best part of the mix, & release it to the world to share.
This particular video footage was all recorded in one night with 2 separate GoPro cameras just to document the impromptu recording session between J & Rhett, as they improvise on the spot, weaving in & out of songs with blends & cuts. This is a visual preview of the free mix “Get Live With It”, that will be sharing with the world on February 10th, 2015.
This Audio/Visual Recording is dedicated to the loving memory of James Dewitt Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J-Dilla….We miss you.

Mixed by The Dynamic Duo aka J.Rocc & Rhettmatic

What’s up folks…..yes, another installment of “Throwback Thursdays”.
For those that do not know, Shortkut & myself call ourselves “The Godfathers”, not because we’re like ‘Godfathers’ in the DJ/Turntablist scene, but because we are actual Godfathers (or as the Filipinos would traditionally say, “Ninongs”) to Babu‘s oldest son, Niko….and we were also roommates at one time….LOL!!
Back in the early 2000’s, Short & myself came up with some 2 man tag-team routines while we were roommates. We eventually took our little set on the road while on tour with The Visionaries in Europe. Fast forward to 2013, our sponsors Rane asked the Junkies to perform at their booth for the NAMM Show. Short & myself took the opportunity to try to come up with some stuff that’s similar to what we did back in the 2000’s. A couple of things tho that was standing in our way. (1) We forgot some of our old routines, (2) Short lives in the Bay Area, I live in the LA County, & (3) because of our busy schedules, we only had 1 day, yes…ONE DAY, to come up with something. So Short flew down to LA the day before we were schedule to play at the NAMM booth, so we can practice and try to come up with something. We rented out a rehearsal studio, came up with something, & practice for 6 hours. We were able to remember & incorporate some of our old 2 man routine, and with Short’s suggestion, we reflip a classic routine of The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel. After brainstorming & stressing, this is what we came up with.
Short & myself have always talked about doing a Godfather show, hopefully we can still do one in the near future. Hope you like this little ditty from 2 years ago….oh yeah, peep the other footage below of our original 2 man tag-team routine, back in the early 2000’s when we were using vinyl, 2 Vestax mixers, & 3 Vestax turntables….ah yes, memories….LOL!
From The Visionaries European Tour (2004) in Hamburg, Germany
What’s up folks…..
Yeah, I totally forgot to post something for Mixtape Mondays, so my apologies……but to make it up for missing yesterday’s schedule post, I’m doing “Tapedeck Tuesdays”…ha!! Instead of posting classic & new Beat Junkie mixes, I’m going to post mixes from friends of ours and/or people material that we digged. And oh yes, these mixes were originally on cassette tapes.
The first one is a classic mixtape from the homies from Boston, Djs, Producers, Record Collectors, & just a bunch of cool guys…..Kon & Amir. They put out a mixtape series called “On Track” which they dropped all the dope classic samples & the original music source that well known Hip Hop Producers used. The series debut in 1997 on cassette. This particular mix is Volume 4 which came out during the early 2000’s was a double cassette. Listen to this classic mix & enjoy the vibes……

I just recently heard some news via Violet Brown of The Wherehouse Record Stores fame & Tech N9ne‘s Strange Music of the passing of a West Coast Hip Hop Pioneer. Rest In Peace to the one & only Steve Yano of Roadium Swap Meet/Skanless Records fame….He passed away earlier on Wednesday (9/17/14) due to a freak accident. This man was responsible for selling the hottest records in LA & the classic Dr Dre, Dj Tony A, Eazy E, NWA cassette mixtapes, as well as putting out Hi-C, Proper Dos & Black Forest records on his own label, Skanless. He was also the first person to sell the Ultimate Breaks and Beats album series (these Breakbeat compilations is basically the Holy Bible of Breaks….Dre used all of them on “Straight Outta Compton”) in LA. All of this was happening at his booth at the Roadium Swap Meet in Gardena, Ca in the 80’s. I had the pleasure of working with him thru Wiz1der (of Circle Of Power) & the whole Blak Forest crew. I recorded “From The Ground Up” & “Ubiquity” for the “World Famous Beat Junkies Vol. 2” album at his Skanless Recording Studios in Alhambra in 1997, as well as the Visionaries, getting our 1st album “Galleries” mixed there. He was such a cool guy & is definitely a Pioneer in the West Coast Hip Hop scene. My deepest condolence to his family. Thank you Steve for all your contribution.

On Thursday, September 25th, it’s another installment of “Nightline” at the Pot Lobby inside The Line Hotel in Koreatown. It’s FREE from 8pm-12am. This month’s residents are Rhettmatic & Babu. Come thru for a night of good music, drinks, & vibes. S/O to the homie Roy Choi!
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……
A Night At The Knitting Factory
D-Styles Sextet Rehearsal #1
D-Styles Sextet Rehearsal #2
It’s been 13 years since the 9/11 attack……a lot of lives have been lost & affected since that faithful day.
In honor of 9/11, I thought I post up this particular song from my group, The Visionaries, which the title of the song is aptly called “Nine Eleven”. The backstory of this song is that it was actually made on that faithful date: 9/11/01. After the fall of the New York Twin Towers, the fellas (2Mex, LMNO, Dannu, Key-Kool, Lord Zen) felt inspired to go straight to the studio & to record a song, to get all their emotions out after watching too much media coverage. I added scratches the day after. The outro vocal on the end of the song belong to my man D-Smooth, who was a producer, the A&R for Up Above Records, & a New York native. We thought it was appropriate for him to get on the song and say a little something since he was there when it happened. This song is featured on the album, “Pangaea”.
We, the Beat Junkies, would like to salute to all the men & women, all the families, all the firefighters that were affected on 9/11. God Bless You All……
The Source Magazine did a spotlight on the Beat Junkies’ Digital Record Pool. To help celebrate this service that they’ve set up, D-Styles created a 25 minute mix Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, and Dance music. They also interviewed Rhettmatic about the Record Pool.

No introduction needed for one of the best to do it, DJ Premier ! His signature sound has helped define Hip-Hop and inspired the DJ Community World Wide. Rhettmatic recently had the chance to get caught up with our good friend DJ Premier/ Preemo after his show at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana. Shout out to Keebler, Jeff, and the whole team at Headquarters. Special big up to the Man himself Preemo, for giving us a ton of exclusive music for the Record Pool. Make sure you go to our Record Pool section for the latest releases from DJ Premier’s own record label “Year Round”, and that Classic Premier Sound.
When did you know you wanted to be a producer?
DJ Premier: I knew I wanted to be a producer actually when I started reading the James Brown produced music. It always had a James Brown production. I did not know what a producer was, but it seemed like it fit what I thought it was once I became one. They must be the ones who are setting the whole tone how it is suppose to go down. He may not be playing everything; he may not even be playing any instrument; but he is going to be like “do it like this, or no no no, do it like that.” That is how I am, “put that there, and no that is in the wrong spot,” and it does not always have to be Hook/Rhyme, Hook/Rhyme or Verse/Hook, Verse Hook. Sometimes it can be unorthodox. You can do it any way, if you just feel it a certain way. That is why I like how James Brown says, “If it feels good, then it is good.” You do not want to follow a certain pattern; how does it feel when you do it? And that is how I do it! I do all my stuff organically and on the spot. I never knew about making beat tapes and stuff like that, and that just wasn’t me. Him (James Brown), Quincy Jones, Marley Marl is my all time Idol. I feel like he is the James Brown of Hip Hop production. It was just so funky with the records he made. It was just like, Yo there is so many great records, but he just had a style like so unexplainable. That is what made me say, “I got to do it!” Where somebody like him would say “I’m doing it right without being a biter!” No biting! We’re from the era where biting (pauses).. MAN!!! We saw many fights where people were going, “you bit my shit!” We witnessed beat downs over biting. Now you can sound the same and everybody will be like “yah, yah, just turn it up” and it’s like nah, nah, sound like your own self, so I can like your shit or otherwise your like a loaf of bread that doesn’t have a brand, you know what I am saying and I already got Wonder Bread.
Out of all the songs that you produced for Biggie, Jay-Z and Nas, which one is your favorite?
DJ Premier: (Exhales) Man! I like them all the same in different ways. I mean there were certain scenarios that gave birth to certain records. Certain Nas records were amazing, when we did New York State of Mind. Showbiz was there when I was cutting it. Showbiz was the one who put me into D&D. He was doing a session with Lord Finesse remixing “Return of the Funky Man Remix” and wanted me to scratch. So I went there to lay my scratches and they had to leave. So he was like “Yo when they finish the mix, make me a CASSETTE” and I made me one. So I hopped in my Mazda MPV and popped it in and it was just thumping. So I said “this is where I am going to make the next Gang Starr album “Daily Operation” at D&D, which is now Headquarters Studios.
How did you connect with Biggie for “Unbelievable?”
DJ Premier: Unbelievable came about by, I don’t want to say luck. Ummmm it was by him (Biggie) catching me at the right time. I was really busy at that time. You know Pete Rock, Large Professor, Showbiz, and me. We were all so heavily busy. We would all see each other and be in the same circles of music. Diamond D you know. The whole D.I.T.C crew, all that stuff. We were around all that, Tribe and De La (Soul) you know even Mr. Cee and (Big Daddy) Kane. We were all in the same circle of parties and events of things going on. So we all talked to each other about what we were doing next.
So it was like a fraternity?
DJ Premier: Yeah, yeah! Like all the time. So BIG and them were younger dudes. Even Jay-Z was a younger dude to us, not a lot younger, but young enough where we were glad to see them be next chapter of them bringing it in right. And then they did it, and I’m so happy for their careers. All that stuff there was a time when you had to do it right to be given a thumbs up everywhere you go and a salute. Street music man! It could go as mainstream as you want it to, but it had an origin. And I like the origin of the purest form, which is dope beats, dope rhymes, and scratching.
You’re pretty much the innovator of the Hook Scratch?
DJ Premier: That is just from watching people. When Terminator X did stuff, when Jam Master Jay and Cut Creator and Bobcat and Joe Cooley and you know what I’m saying. Even (Dr.) Dre was cutting shit up back in the N.W.A, ahh the Arabian Prince, and World Class Wreckin Cru days.
Are there any young producers right now catching your ear?
DJ Premier: On the young producer side, not really. Even though I study every one of them to see what they’re doing. I like the effort they put into staying in the game like the way we do it. The sound just does not grab me like the sound I was influenced by. I’m not being selfish or anything like that. It is just that I like what I like. So the newer stuff just doesn’t grab me. I like some of the artists, I like J.Cole, I like Drake, I like….ah some of Big Sean’s stuff. I’m not always into the production, but they got lyrics. So if we ever click, let’s get it in and I will give you a dirty one, but you know I just like raw lyrics. I’m from a certain funk! I’m a descendent of the funk! Like George Clinton and James Brown.
What is one song you wished you produced?
DJ Premier: I always say I wish I produced “The Bridge” by MC Shan. That record with just the drum roll, the echoes, just everything about that record as simple as it was. I remember hearing it at a RUN-D.M.C concert at my college Prairie View. Dana Dane and Clark Kent opened up and RUN-D.M.C was at the ‘apex of apex’ and they came to my school during the “Raising Hell” time. Like that was one of the most amazing things to witness, especially down there. It was one of the illest things; and when they were switching turntables to set it up and make sure the sound was right they were playing a 98.7Kiss mix from Red Alert, and I just started hearing, “Ladies and Gentlemen (beat boxing), we got MC Shan and Marley Marl in the house tonight (tonight) (echoes). They just came from off tour and they want to tell you a story about where they come from.” I was like, “what the hell is that?” I thought they were saying, “the breaks, the breaks, the breaks, the breaks,” and Kurtis Blow was already popular with “The Breaks” six years prior. And I was like, “what is like ‘the breaks, the breaks, the breaks?’” I went to New York for the summer and went to a record store and I was like, “what is that record ‘the breaks, the breaks?’ and the guy was like, “nah it is ‘the bridge, the bridge’ and it was on Bridge Records.” It looked like a ghetto, gutter, hard record, the green label and Bridge Records. And then I already knew Marley Marl from Dimples D and Roxanne Shante‘s early music. So to see that I was like, “he got another one, but it don’t sound like a drum machine programmed record.” It sounded like the record (Impeach the President, by Honey Drippers), but how is he making the record loop like that? I did not understand that and I was like, “I got to learn that science. Whatever that science is I got to learn that because that is dope!” And that is what made me start doing it.
Congrats to our good friends (Harry, Jubel, Paul and Andy) over at Primitive Apparel for their 6 Year Anniversary. They recently held an event in celebration at the The Standard in DTLA. Our very own DJ Babu, Rhettmatic and Soulection‘s Esta set the vibe for the day. Pool Parties on Sunday afternoon in LA! You got to love it! CA ALL DAY!
From the Soulection‘s Soundcloud page:
“Last Thursday at The Echoplex was very historical for the L.A. music culture. We brought two worlds together (Pioneers & next generation) audiences/vibes in one room. The Beat Junkies are a legendary DJ crew that have inspired Soulection. The Cypress Junkies (consisting of Rhettmatic & Eric Bobo [member of Cypress Hill]) really threw down one of the best performances in our TSOT history. To hear them play percussion, scratch over beats by Sango, Tek. Lun, Araabmuzik, and more was truly inspiring. The audio can only give you an idea but you had to be there to really soak it all in. Enjoy this one.”
Shoutouts to Joe Kay, Andres, SoSuperSam, Esta, & the whole Soulection crew for a historic event. Also in the house: D-Styles, Mr. Choc, Melo-D, Tommy Gun, OG KDAY Mixmaster Julio G, Sick Jacken of Psycho Realm, & Ras Kass.

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!
