Happy New Years! I thought I share some old live recordings of the Beat Junkies to start off the new year.....

This particular recording was a recorded live in Japan in the August of 2002. We were celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary of the Beat Junkies throughout the whole year..... Dilated Peoples & the Beat Junkies were asked to perform at the Technics' 30 Yr Anniversary to commemorate the 30 years that the Technics 1200 Turntable has been around in the business.

This was a 2 Hour performance/party rocking set; 5 turntables, 4 mixers, 2 Pioneer EFX500 boxes, & the real kicker.....RECORDS! Yes people, this was waay before the Serato explosion. Anyways, the first 5 minutes is basically us rocking a Turntable band set (basically all of us on one turntable each: Babu = Lead Vocals, Melo-D = Lead Guitars, J-Rocc = Percussion & Rhythm Section, & me = The Drummer). The rest of the mix is pretty much our individual party rocking sets gettin down, "Beat Junkie Style". Evidence (Dilated Peoples), Dj Muro, GM Yoshi, & Key-Kool (Visionaries) were in the crowd.

So yeah, a little blast from the past for all you turntable junkies/dj you a taste what we were doing in 2002.

I'm surprised the link is still good. After zshare went down in August of 2009 alot links went dead but this one survived for some reason.
