    J Rocc

    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.

    Low Res From The Plug Research DATs

    Joins us for a live set of wild, nearly undefinable future jazz, hip-hop and experimental electronics by early Plug Research, Sublime Records and Mille Plateaux artist, Danny Zelonky aka Low Res. Likely recorded between ’98 and ’00, this set is a lost treasure created by an artist crucial to the 90s electronic music scene in Los Angeles. Low Res and other artists, such as Allen Avenessian, Joe Babylon, and Dimitri Fergadis aka Pthalocyanine, would all release music on Plug Research prior to second-generation artists like Daedelus and Flying Lotus (who came to define the label for some time).
