FROM THE VAULTS: J Rocc live at the Root Down
This live mix from J Rocc, Beat Junkies founder, DJ, and producer was recorded at the world famous Root Down party that happened every week in LA during the late ’90s and early ’00s. DJs like Loslito, Miles, Cut Chemist, DJ Dusk, Peanut Butter Wolf, and others could be heard spinning the best in hip-hop, funk, soul, roots, jazz and latin music. During its lifespan, the club drew indie hip-hop groups, funk bands, conscious MCs and athletic turn turntablists from around the state, and was an authentic piece of LAs local culture for nearly a decade.
FROM THE VAULTS is an ongoing curation project produced by Ben Sinclair, resurfacing rare live performances and DJ sets recorded during dublab’s first ten years.
