The Beat Junkies’ DJ Rhettmatic Shares His Wedding Mixer Series, Of Family-Friendly Funk (Audio)
Friendly by day, DJ Rhettmatic is nothing nice when he’s on the wheels of steel. The Southern California DJ is one of the leaders of The Beat Junkies crew (with J Rocc), and somebody who has worked with J Dilla, Ras Kass, and his other crew, The Visionaries for over 20 years. With all that time on the cut, Rhettmatic had a lil’ fun, making the cliche “wedding mix” especially Hip-Hop.
In 2002, Rhett dropped The Wedding Mixer, available on vinyl and CD, to show some sucka DJs playing the basics how to truly bring some Funk to the floor. He followed suit 12 years later, ending late 2013 with a highly-touted second installment. With a birthday over the weekend, The Beat Junky uploaded them both to Soundcloud for our collective listening pleasure. They include Dazz Band, Klymaxx, Shalamar, as well as MC Shy-D, The Soulsonic Force, and some other Hip-Hop gems. Not just for weddings, these mixes win for cook-outs, birthdays, block parties, house parties, and the age-old drive to work with the windows down, grab a partner and shake what your mama gave ya (Happy Mother’s Day):
