Video: J. Rocc's Vinyl Collection On Crate Diggers
J. Rocc digging in the crates
Every junkie has a stash and Beat Junkie J. Rocc is no exception. In this next episode of their Crate Diggers series, Fuse takes us inside the hallowed beat stash of one of the leading lights of the DJ game. A seriously eclectic collector, a quick inventory of J. Rocc's crates is a 12-minute odyssey covering everything from Big Daddy Kane promo-only 12"s to Bollywood soundtracks (kinda gratifying to know that the illustrious Mr. Rocc follows a scheme of record organization very similar to my own--partly sorted by flow and BPM and partly not sorted at all). Some highlights include: Sun Ra hand-silkscreened original pressings, magic D.J. promo copies of Fred Wesley & The J.B.s discs with secret bonus tracks, jazz gems on the Horo label and the magic record de-warping machine. Get out your white gloves, keep a notepad handy and dive in below.
