(WATCH) THERES NO COMPETITION: THE BEAT JUNKIES REMIND US WHY THEY’RE UNSTOPPABLE!!!
It’s been 25 years since the commencement of The Beat Junkies reign. Unstoppable, the West Coast DJ crew has effortlessly maintained their influence as a as a force to be reckoned with. J.Rocc, D-Styles, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ What?!, Symphony, Tommy Gun, Icy Ice, Curse, DJ Shortcut, Melo-D, DJ Havik, DJ Babu and Mr. Choc aren’t stingy with the technique and skillset that they’ve honed throughout the years either! Their passion for teaching the next generation of DJs became blatantly obvious with the opening of The Beat Junkie Institute of Sound! According to DJ Babu, creating an ambiance unlike other DJ schools is probably one of the most essential factors in learning the art.
“I’d love to turn some world champions out of our school, but at least I hope we can connect people closer to the culture and history. I don’t diss people making millions without their equipment plugged in, but there aren’t any ones and zeros that can replicate the experience of getting together and building. The thing that made us The Beat Junkies was that we had each other to practice with – we had finally found our people.”
