FOB Asia & Stones Throw Records are so proud to announce, the return of J Rocc!  One year ago, we brought the Beat Junkies originator to Kee Club for a sold out show, and we’re running it back to Kee for Part 2!  One of hip hop’s original turntablists, J Rocc has been spinning and innovating since the mid 80s.  The personal DJ for Madlib since the early 2000s, J Rocc’s vinyl prowess landed him a gig as the third member of the legendary hip hop group Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla).  Aside from his celebrity collaborations, in 2011 he released the self-produced and highly anticipated album, Some Cold Rock Stuff.  When he’s not producing for the iconic Stones Throw Records, he’s churning out mix tapes, including the highly influential Soundbombing II compilation.  Don’t miss out on one of the hip hop’s illest and hardest DJ’s, J Rocc!!  Sat, April 12th, save the date!  Hong Kong, you’re welcome.

 

 

One of the original turntablists, J-Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. Born Jason Jackson, he began DJing in the mid-'80s with a California group named PSK. Soon after forming, the Beat Junkies became a seminal force in the rise of instrumental hip-hop, including core member Babu plus future stars Shortkut and D-Styles. The group won federation championships in 1997 and 1998, after which they collectively retired from competition. Beat Junkies mixes and studio material continued to pour out. J-Rocc's first widely issued mix album, Walkman Rotation, appeared in 1998 on Conception, and he also worked with Babu on the turntablist compilation Soundbombing, Vol. 2, plus as the Bumrush Brothers. After touring as the DJ for Madlib's live shows, J-Rocc released his first album of productions, Some Cold Rock Stuf, in 2011 on the Stones Throw label.
