20 years of DJing

It was around this time 20 years ago, in 1994, when I got my first DJ set-up. A pair of Technics 1210s and a Gemini Scratchmaster mixer. I don't often do editorial pieces on my blog, but seeing this year marks my 20th year of DJ'ing, I wanted to write up a little piece to mark this occasion.

Platter World

Platter World in Garfield NJ will be closing this November after an incredible 40 year run. They are eager to get rid of all their stock and have dropped the prices down to $3 per record. Just wanted to give them some promotion to help out as it's been one of my favorite spots, and a staple in Garfield, for a very long time. Check them out if you get the chance.

Re-Up: Stretch & Bobbito 3-16-1995 (w/Masta Ace Inc, The Roots, Bootcamp)

This might be my all time favorite Stretch & Bobbito show. This was one of those wish-I-still-had-this-tape kind of deals, until recently. This one is a collaborative effort, the first 2 hours brought to you by Steve B via Nobs and Aleph, and the 3rd part is what I was able to fill in afterwards. Not sure if Organized Konfusion showed up this night, but they were scheduled. You do get some good freestyle material from Masta Ace, Lord Digga, Paula Perry, Malik B, Black Thought, Dice Raw, Tek, Steel and Buckshot. Crazy line-up.
