J. Rocc, of the World Famous Beat Junkies, is a seminal DJ. A West Coast legend, he is at least three decades deep in his craft, active as a tour DJ, a mix master and a producer in his own right. If you have ever had the privilege of watching him do his thing live, you’ve been in the presence of greatness. His skills are flawless, his execution is intuitive, and his ear is precise and diverse. He is one of the few DJs that can exist in various realms without compromising — from spinning breaks, to hip hop, to Brazilian records, and back.
DJ Dez is a legend in his own right, too. Hailing from the Motor City, Dez has an eclectic palate when it comes to spinning records. He’s served as the DJ for Slum Village, toured worldwide, and has produced various records under his pseudonym Andrés.
This track is a J. Rocc edit of an Andrés production. The Brazilian-tinged “Sing About It” is originally squarely aimed at the dance floor. J’s edit incorporates a bit more of the sample in the original and adds a bit of west coast ambiance to the tune. I have no idea who Flaunt Edwards is.
