BEAT JUNKIES Celebrates 20 Years

(image taken from http://www.attheecho.com/event/134555/)

If you live in LA and know a thing or two about mobile DJ’s and turntablism, then you should know that the World Famous Beat Junkies will be on tour celebrating 20 years as a crew, starting with a show at the Echoplex on 06/30/2012.  20 years!  And I’ve been listening to them on the radio since the 1990’s!  Crazy!  This is a one time event for LA so check them out.  Tickets are sold out, but there might be limited admission at the door so try to arrive early.

If you can’t make that event, then try to come out to Amoeba in Hollywood on Friday, 06/29/2012, to see them perform before their tour kicks off that Saturday.

DMC DJ Online Battle Round 10

Guess who decided to submit a Round 10 submission to DMC DJ Online?  It’s the Bay Area’s 89 Skratch Gangstaz DJ Snayk Eyez.  This guy was big in the battle scene in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  A remarkable turntablist with 2 tracks featured on Return of the DJ volumes 4 and 5 and has a short cameo in the documentary Scratch, by Doug Pray.  Let’s see if he can win this round.

This is DJ Fong Fong.  Found out about this dude by checking out his numerous tablist videos on youtube.  You can check him out here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/djsynaps
