Damu the Fudgemunk - Cuttin it Up!!


I watch and listen to this video for when Damu starts cutting it up at 3:30....definitely very inspirational cause I like his rhythmic scratching and the tones he's able to extract out of the words....

D-Styles is "DA MAN"



man, this sh*t makes me love being a scratch monkey....funky ass patterns and incredible technicality...makes you realize, damn, I will suck for my entire life.....these people are way too far ahead the rest of humanity.....

but I love to listen to scratch music by all of the best in the world.... "It's the most beautiful-ugly sound in the world"...

Check out D-Styles album "Phantasmagorea" if you like this...

saw this video on Pipomixes blog so shout out to Pipo...

Melo D - rockin the doubles



I'm not sure if "trick mixing" is the official term for this *Beat Junkie* style of rockin doubles.....I would be happy if I could even do 25% of this stuff (which I can't).....*Melo-D* and *J-Rocc* make it look real easy.... but it's easy as hell to have some serious train-wrecking  sounding like shite going on fast....

Jeremy Ellis - James Brown MPC madness!!!



gotta see this dude live at some point....it's on my life checklist...incredible!!!  Watch this all the way through.....his routine starting at 1:14 is too insane...what a performer!!!  great crowd too....I would seriously be losing my sh*t if I was watching this live....

Exile seriously flips "a Milli"



I could listen to Exile rockin a MPC for 24 hours a day....his sense of rhythm is like no other....wish I could have gotten to see this live...this is a damn hype crowd!!!

J-Rocc - "Stay Fresh"


Man do I miss record shopping out in the Shibuya.....record shops like no other.....this video makes me miss traveling (and eating amazing food) in Japan.....me and my friends out there used to joke around that you would say:
