Babu’s influence in hip hop started in the 1990s, as he played an essential role in the evolution of the DJ with the Los Angeles collective The World Famous Beat Junkies. Taking his talents to a higher level, in 1997, he stormed the dj battle scene and was the first to win all 3 categories (Scratching, Beat Juggling, and Teams) at the International Turntablist Federation. While continuing to be a dominant force in the battle scene, Babu released a number of groundbreaking mixtape albums combining intricate mixing and turntablism. From these releases, the most notable included “Comprehension”, “Duck Season Vol. 1 & 2”, and his 1999 collaboration effort “Sound Bombing 2” (Rawkus Records) with fellow Beat Junkie, DJ J Rocc.

As an official member of the West Coast group Dilated Peoples he stands at the forefront as the group’s DJ, he preserves the art of turntablism and lets all fans know that the DJ is the backbone of
hip hop.

With his brand new release “Duck Season 3”, DJ Babu continues to cement his role not only as DJ, but also as producer – all songs are produced and arranged by DJ Babu. Guest MCs include Dilated Peoples, MF Doom, MOP, Little Brother, Kardinall Offishall, Bishop Lamont, Joe Scudda, Termanology, Wildchild and many more.
