J.Rocc - 'Some Cold Rock Stuf' LP

J.Rocc of The World Famous Beat Junkies is probably one of the tightest, cleanest, funkiest, smoothest, most talented (party) DJ's that I have ever seen live.

Way back when the 'Scratch' Tour was here with Jazzy Jay and Q-Bert, J performed a set to make jaws drop.

So highly regarded is he that Dilla, the consumate high-standard producer that he was, chose J to be his tour DJ.

Anyhow, I digress...

His debut LP 'Some Cold Rock Stuf' was released today on the un-fadeable Stones Throw Records imprint.

I have a copy of the 'Play This Too' EP 12" that was released late last year, and since that purchase I have been hangin' for April 5th to roll around.

The appetite was further whet when I heard his beautiful slow-burner track 'Chasing The Sun' on Benji-B's Christmas Special on BBC Radio One last year.

Lovely piano and hip-hop vocal loops over some layered head-nod breaks and reversed drums.

Check that audio below...

For wax-heads, pick up the vinyl or head to i-Tunes for the loot.
