Truly great DJs don't just spin records, they curate an evening of unique sounds and surprise samples that give proof to years (or decades) of crate digging for that special beat or the massive hook that makes everybody in the club stop and ask "Wait... what is THAT?" Few wizards on the wheel of steel have as much experience or as deep a catalog as the Brooklyn DJ and producer J.PERIOD. This renowned creator, who has made a name over the past quarter century with his "audio-biographical" mixes for icons like Nas, Q-Tip, Lauryn Hill and The Roots, opens up his vinyl vault to reveal the artists behind Hip-Hop's all-time great cuts. Beyond James Brown, Parliament, Isaac Hayes, and Chaka Khan, there's a world of more obscure samples waiting to be discovered. Let J.PERIOD be your guide as he squares up on the 1s and 2s for an evening of exploration where secrets will be revealed and improv cyphers are sure to pop off.
