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!

Reebok Classics Presents: Lauryn Hill (Interview)

Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill is looking better and better each time I see her in front of a camera lately. A couple years ago she was looking a little stressed out. Seems like she got her swagger back. Maybe it was the touring, getting out that music. Lookin’ good, girl! No pressure, but if you should happen to feel inspiration to do some new music, I’ll be happy to listen. Thanks to Reebok and Rock the Bells for the interview. It’s part of an exclusive film series ‘Classic Albums By Classic Artists’. Shout to OkayPlayer, which hipped me to it.
