Da Beatminerz Rock A 90 Minute Radio Party Covering Rock, Funk, Jazz & Hip-Hop (Mix)

Da Beatminerz and Q-Tip go back. Although not collaborators in the traditional sense, DJ Evil Dee and Mr. Walt joined the Abstract at those storied Roosevelt Hotel Record Conventions in the early 1990s New York City. Black Moon and A Tribe Called Quest were running in the same circles, advancing the city’s sound throughout the decade.

As Q-Tip took a week off of The Abstract Radio show on Beats 1, he called up on the Brothers Dewgarde to step in and keep the party rockin’. The two brothers from Bushwick, Brooklyn (who have their own successful Beatminerz Radio Show) did just that. Heads can some excellent handiwork on joints by David Bowie, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Bobby Caldwell, Gil Scott-Heron, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Rah Digga, and much, much more. These are not just straightforward records, but true mixing from two former record store clerks, celebrated producers, and guys who supported their vinyl habits back in the ’80s by making curated mixes. This joint right here is worthy of any holiday party.
