Blackout Top News

Live From the Home of Hip Hop

DJ JS-1:

I recently did a set for Eddie B Swift’s “Mind Trip” show on B-Real from Cypress Hill’s Internet TV Station (Breal.Tv). This is the live recording from that show. It was just me going off on two turntables, with no headphones. This is what i call maniac animal style of djaying… lol. I was just going from song to song, break to break and cutting up everything. I wasn’t really attempting to mix songs like a usual mixtape, i was just going bezerk. Some of it may be a lil sloppy and some of the quick mixes are slightly off, but the point was not to be neat like i was mixing r&b in a plush club, it was to cut up everything and just have fun doing what i love most… If you do not like tons of scratching and cutting up records, you probably don’t want to hear this. Because we were live in the Bronx i felt i should do a set that fit the mood. I played lots of old skool tracks from DST, Mantronix, Jazzy Jay, Crash Crew, Fantasy Three, etc… I mixed in some breaks, some 90’s and some special acapella blends. This is what i love to do, and how we represent hip hop culture. I can’t thank Eddie B Swift enough for having me come through, and also B-Real for allowing this to happen. You need to check out The EBS show which starts everyday at noon (est) and 9am (pst). He has incredible djays coming through like the legendary inventor of the scratch Grand Wizard Theodore, Mell Starr, to old school Bronx veterans like DJ Chubby Chubb, along with himself tearing it up every show. I was surprised at how many people were viewing when i was on, and how many people were live in the chat room. Good to see people out there who appreciate this style of djaying… I grew up loving this and will never waiver, sell out or lose my integrity. Soo many djays have jumped ship, abandoned hip hop and now play edits of pop-techno-r&b garbage only. It’s sad. We try to maintain the culture and never make a mockery of what we love. Shout out to Crazy Legs and the whole Rock Steady Crew, this year the anniversary will be at Central Park, NYC on July 28th, 2013. YES!!! Shout out to DJ Premier and Dj Eclipse who recently did old school sets on their radio shows that got me amped and inspired. They never compromise with their music. Shout out to MixMaster Mike, Dj Muggs, Dj Shortkut, Dj Rhettmatic, AC the Program Director, Rob Swift, Total Eclipse, Dj Skizz, Tony Touch, Evil D and Mr. Walt, Dj Numark, Cut Chemist, Mark Luv, Jazzy Jay, Grand Wizard Theodore, Afrika Bambaataa, Skeme Richards and all the other djays who never fake the funk. I hope you enjoy this maniac mix, lol, Live From the Home of Hip Hop…

DJ-Rhettmatic-Dilla

I know there’s a lot of Dilla Tribute mixes out there, and me personally, I don’t think there’s anyone that can out top a Dilla mix that was made by my fellow Beat Junkie & the 3rd Member of Jaylib, the Funky President himself, J.Rocc. The only one who can possible come close would our good friend, Houseshoes. I already made 2 mixes a few years ago, but I was inspired again to work on another one. I tried to finish the mix late last night but got real tired….I just finally finished this mix before the day was over. I definitely was trying not to repeat songs like I did on my previous Dilla mixes but sometimes you can’t help going back to his classic catalogue. Anyways, here’s my third installment of my “J Dilla Whatupdoe” mixes, a 30 minute vibe mix. Unfortunately, we also lost another Musical legend a few days ago….Mr. Donald Byrd, and i actually added the original “Think Twice” song to the mix as well as Dilla’s version, in paying homage to the legendary musician.

dilla-anthem

PayJay Productions, Inc. was the company James Dewitt “J Dilla” Yancey founded in 2001 to house his production company and his publishing company. But it was also a symbolic move: PayJay was a sign that the maverick producer then known as Jay Dee would see his individual goals in music industry realized, and he would get paid in the process.

The Estate of James Yancey has revived PayJay as a functioning imprint, and is announcing its release of J Dilla’s long lost vocal album, The Diary. The first single “Anthem” featuring Frank N Dank b/w “Trucks” is now available and will be released on vinyl early this spring. Both “Anthem” and “Trucks” were produced, and feature complete vocal performances, by Dilla.
