This August, STD is proud to present the original  turntablist J.ROCC. The Southern California native has been DJing longer  than most people have listened to electronic music.

J. Rocc is an icon for a rare breed of DJs these  days: turntablists. He’s a veteran of scratching, cutting, and juggling  vinyls; he invents sounds never heard before with the whip of his hand.  It’s something of a lost art today, but with his crew the Beat Junkies,  J. Rocc has been keeping turntablism alive.

The Beat Junkies are the original turntablist group,  evolving with the times As hip hop DJs, they recognise and master the  importance of balancing scratching with mixing songs and reading crowds.  Founded by J. Rocc in ’92, the Beat junkies have been rocking parties  with incomprehensible team routines for decades.

The  beat-juggling maestro has been prolific both in groups and while flying  solo. As an individual artist, he’s released numerous mixtapes and  productions for record label Stones Throw, including his latest album  Some Cold Rock Stuf’. Over the years, J. Rocc has also been the DJ for  Madlib’s live show and was the third member of Jaylib all whilst leading  the Beat Junkies.

If you’re a fan of turntablism and instrumental hip-hop, join us in paying homage to a true legend this August 29.
