DJ P. Makes An All-Vinyl Mix With New Joints By Joey Bada$$, A.G., Quasimoto & Lord Finesse (Mixtape)
UPDATE: It turns out that this DJ P actually hails from Lyon, France—no relation to the Phoenix, Arizona-based DJ P below. However, this mix still beckons many listens and much enjoyment.
DJ P. is an underground DJ legend. More than a decade ago, as DJ Z-Trip’s partner, P. made Uneasy Listening, Vol. 1, a benchmark release in the party-rocking mash-up genre. Skillfully, P and Z blended The Pharcyde, 45 King, Pat Benatar, Glen Campbell, Depeche Mode, Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, Madonna, and even The Jerky Boys. The acclaimed mix was long before Z-Trip would play arenas, and DJ P. would be crowned the 2012 “Master Of The Mix.”
Now, the Phoenix, Arizona is still finding new ways to advance the culture, through an unpredictable playlist, and genre-defying crates. Shutter, the latest, leaves the Serato at home, and goes all-vinyl, in sharing some of the tracks and traits that made 2014 a great year in music.
Some of these cuts went under the radar, but deserved a skillful turntable technician, the old fashioned way.
