Philadelphia Sound Konnoiseurs (?uestlove, Jazzy Jeff, J Rocc, Diplo & DJ Spinna)

This was the scene as “PSK” – 5 of the world’s most awesome DJ’s – came together to form Voltron for one night of madness, July 3rd, 2011, at Club Voyeur in Philly. Concieved and organized by legendary DJ ?uestlove, the event was the first of it’s kind.“What we decided was to throw a Rave,” explains The Roots drummer/producer.

According to Grammy winning producer and DJ Diplo, “These are the guys who got me to DJ in the first place, you know? It’s a big deal for me, to be able to DJ with these guys, in the hometown.”“If I DJ’d with Jazzy Jeff or ?uestlove or J Rocc – if the four of us were playing a party together 10 years ago, we would have to have a seperate backstage area for just the records and CD’s we were playing with,” Diplo elaborated, on why he now uses Serato.

“Philly ain’t never had a party like this … everybody played a whole bunch of different stuff, man, it was incredible,” expressed Jazzy Jeff.

The Serato crew were on hand and filmed the legendary night, plus interviewed all the DJ’s of PSK – the Philadelphia Sound Konnoiseurs. For live footage of the mix masters doing their thing, plus interviews with each of them, Read More!

SHABAAM SAHDEEQ: First Bars, Jails Bars and White Bars (Interview)

Shabaam Sahdeeq

Props to GasFace on this one. It’s a nice interview and the camera work looks official. You know Shabaam is our homie from way back. We hope to have him up at MCMIreport.com in the near future.

Bars.

You can climb them,

trade them with Em, or see life go by through them. Marcus Vialva did all of the above. Went from being a straight nobody from Flatbush,

to becoming an undergound superhero of the legendary Rawkus saga,

back to being a faceless number, only lower this time.

Bottom of the can. Four years.
