The Los Angeles-based turntablist has made a noteworthy evolution and also stands as one of underground rap’s fastest-rising producers. A world-famous DJ, with active memberships in Dilated Peoples and Beat Junkies among his most notable accomplishments, DJ Babu has made a noteworthy evolution. He also stands as one of underground rap’s fastest-rising producers. In 2007 DJ Babu released “The Beat Tape Vol.1”, an instrumental album of the beatsmith’s soulful yet hard hitting compositions. One year later he released the critically acclaimed “Duck Season Vol. 3”, a self produced album that boasted tracks from MCs all across the globe. Both albums were well received with press including the likes of XXL, The Source and allhiphop.com.

Now, DJ Babu, the Dilated Junkie, comes forth with his instrumental follow up, “The Beat Tape Vol.2”. “There was no holding back with this album, I wanted to get the beats out no matter what. I wanted to give my fans a fresh body of music” explains DJ Babu. “My mission with these instrumentals is to put some doubters to rest.”

For having 10+ years of production experience under his belt, most people know Babu as the World Renown / Champion DJ. “I want people to know my sound, all my beats come from a DJ mentality, so “The Beat Tape Vol. 2″ is a great outlet for me to showcase my production. A lot of the DJs that I looked up to became great producers, from Dr. Dre to DJ Premier to Pete Rock. In a lot of ways, I’m trying to carry that same torch, where hip-hop is still rooted within DJing and records.”
