London: Time for some Deviation
- Date published
With J Rocc the founder of the World Famous Beat Junkies performs in London. The late J Dilla’s decksman comes up to scratch and will show that he is still one of the world’s most skilled Hip Hop DJs - technically and in terms of selection. Two years ago he released his first solo album Some Cold Rock Stuf' - an instrumental Hip Hop record filled with exceptional samples, soulful horns, unconventional beats, and head nodding bass lines. Last year he prepared a mix for Carhartt Radio that features old and new Funk and Soul. Additional he gave us a long interview about his musical love affairs.
The other star of the night is Kode 9, the man behind the fabulous Dubstep label Hyperdub. The British DJ and producer is an expert for bass-laden tracks full of infinite soundscapes, strange samples, and odd field recordings. The party gets rounded off by sets of Moxie, Martelo, Mr Pedro, Benji B, and the first UK live performance of the highly acclaimed young New York rapper A$AP FERG.
