Dope DJ, support for Serato and undercover jazz head, KutCorners is one of the most thoughtful DJs I know.  We had some great talks while I was visiting Vancouver about the DJ community (or lack thereof), hip-hop and what’s going on in America.

People Under The Stairs is my shit.  As you’ll hear in this podcast, if I meet someone and they’ve heard of PUTS and they don’t get down with them, they’ve already set a very low ceiling on our friendship.  I was in Cali recently filming interviews for the DJ Documentary and swung by Thes One’s studio.  We talked about the history of PUTS, hijacking John Legend’s piano, the state of hip-hop and more.  Give the podcast a listen, give PUTS a listen and buy their new album HERE.

DJ P is a beast.  I first heard about him from the famous DJ P & DJ Z-TripUneasy Listening Volume 1” mix.  (Get it if you don’t have it.)  The last time I saw P before this interview, he came out to headline a Red Bull 3Style in Pittsburgh.  He was playing Fleetwood Mac acapellas over Metallica guitar solos, all on vinyl, and all the DJs in the house basically quit.  He’s a member of the Rock Steady Crew and you might have seen him recently on TV as a winner of the Master of the Mix show.  We linked up recently to shoot an interview for Soundtrack: The Story of the DJ and this podcast got itself recorded.  (We also went to a Waffle House).

Jake One makes all types of shit that I like.  He makes that Golden Era sounding boom bap shit, he makes that jiggy gangster club shit and he makes that fat bassline funk track shit.  I started really following Jake when I heard White Van Music.   We linked up in Seattle recently to talk about coming up as a DJ, producing from people like Freeway to G-Unit and his newest incarnation with Mayer Hawthorne as Tuxedo.  And drinking Carlos Rossi with E-40…  (yes click all those links)

I’m a nerd.  I love hip-hop and I’m a grown ass man, but I’m a nerd.  I love researching and reading the stories behind things, watching documentaries, etc.  For this reason, Brian Coleman is the shit.  Brian has been a music journalist for a long time but I first heard about him from his book Check The Technique.  Through his books Brian has essentially written the liner notes which previously didn’t exist for 60+ hip-hop albums.  If you’re a hip-hop fan, some of these albums are undoubtedly your favorites.

 

Brian was in town to do a signing for Check The Technique Volume 2 and was gracious enough to swing by my house for an interview.  Listen to his story and cop his publications.  Shouts to DJ Platurn for the link.

 

…and please follow Brian on Twitter.

I’ve been rocking edits and remixes from Cutso for a while now.  I brought him up to Portland and Seattle last week to rock some gigs and we’re extremely overdue for a podcast update so…  In this episode we talk about coming up in San Jose’s mobile-DJ community, people getting stabbed at gigs, producing music for the Jabbawockeez and more.  Sorry for the delay, the documentary has been eating up the good interviews.

A few years ago, Four Color Zack came out of nowhere and started making us all feel like we might wanna quit DJing.  Before I could finish my coffee, he was the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion.  The best part of this tale is, as you’ll learn from this interview, Zack is one of the nicest, most humble and hardest-working DJs in the game.  If anyone should be the ambassador for DJing, this guy deserves that crown for sure.  Zack recently chiseled some time out of his crazy schedule to sit down with me for a coffee and talk about becoming a DJ by way of a metal band, his love of social media and staying positive as a DJ.

The first official DJ for a President of the United States, DJ Adam 12 has had an interesting and envy-inducing career.  He’s been the DJ for icons like Prince and Dr. Dre as well as the resident selector at some of the best parties in the history of LA (if not the world).  Above all that, he’s one of the nicest DJs I’ve ever met.  I got a chance to meet up with him at his studio where he’s working on a new solo non-DJ album.  (On top of his amazing DJ career he’s also one half of She Wants Revenge).  Make some popcorn and enjoy this one.

Last month I headed to Las Vegas to DJ some dates at Insert Coins.  Luckily I had some microphones in my bag and snagged an interview with my most hospitable host, DJ 88.  In Episode 8 (that was a total accident) of the Extra Credit Podcast, Las Vegas murder mami DJ 88 fills us in about coming up as DJ Adam 12‘s manager, Associate Producing the High School High soundtrack and carving out her place in the boy’s club that is DJing.  Do the knowledge, subscribe and give the podcast a good rating!
