Dj hero 3: Dj Aladdin

Me and my Dj cousins (Dj Flux and R-type) used to rewind our vhs copy of the 89 dmc finals,just to get pysched up with Dj Aladdin's routine..Im sure Roc-raida and Craze also looked up to this guy when it comes to speed and showmanship..Aladdin was also one half of the west coast group "Low Profile",along side with WC.classic!

This thursday!@ Attica

RIP Melvin Bliss!

Melvin Bliss passed away today. The man is responsible for “Synthetic Substitution,” easily one of the greatest and most prolifically sampled records ever. The list of Hip-Hop songs that straight ganked the “Substitution” break is extensive, but i really like how they flipped it on this Ghostdini track:

Dj Hero 2: Mr. Mixx

Mr. mixx is the 2 Live crew dj..they put out a lot of hits during the late 80's..especially here in the Phils when "Dirty rap" was really popular during my elementary days..If you ever see this record in bangkal or surplus ukay go cop it!! certified and my mobile crew used to imitate all the scratching in this record..but the standout track is the dj scratch megamix,the last track on the album.

Dj hero 1: Joe Cooley

ok im startin a new segment here..gonna be blogging about some of my dj influences i've looked up to since getting in the dj game back in the early 90's..

the primo goes to one of the best dj/pioneers from the west coast, Joe Cooley..known for his slick jheri curl,and most notably for the classic track "Everlasting bass"..if the east coast had Cash Money and Jazzy Jeff,the west no doubt had Joe Cooley,along with Dj Aladdin reppin the westside..
i've found some home videos of him cutting,circa 1987.(way ahead of his time)

nice sweater man:

Everlasting bass:
the best ever scratch adlib!!man i used to practice mad hours emulatin this "bass"scratching..

check out their debut album "me and joe"...definitely in the top 10 of my best albums in hiphop..last year i found a mint copy of this in some garage in dasmarinas,cavite, so if you ever come across a it! or il buy it off from you.

next week: a megamixer from the sunshine state..
