Split Works brings in DJ pioneer and turntable genius J Rocc. One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic. He began DJing in the mid-â€™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. In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J. Rocc has been the DJ for Madlibâ€™s live shows since the early 2000s. 100rmb, support from Heatwolves, T-Plus and Caution. Should be a banger.
