Debut album from The World Famous Beat Junkies co-founder J.Rocc! The accomplished Beat Junkie has accolades for days and is credited with some of the best mixes we've ever carried. And finally, he steps out on his own with a full length of original material, Some Cold Rock Stuf, which is instrumental hip-hop with breaks for days and beats that draw influences from a wide range of electronic, dance, and rock styles. Check "Chasing The Sun" with its dark and melodic tone, or "Stay Fresh" which fuses a shuffling drum break with heavy, ominous bass. "Don't See Your Dream (Tonight)" contains moody psych elements, while "Too Many Clowns" and "Play This" are uptempo cuts that will have drum fiends salivating and b-boys ready to tear the dancefloor up! An impressive outing from one of the best DJ's to ever do it. This release consists of 3 LPs, the album and a mystery disc - with a triple gatefold, double sided poster, and a sticker sheet. 12 tracks, recommended.
