The Los Angeles-based turntablist/producer and Dilated Peoples member DJ Babu stands at the forefront of hip hop culture. 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 three categories (Scratching, Beat Juggling, and Teams) at the International Turntablist Federation (ITF).

While continuing to be a dominant force in the battle scene, DJ Babu also stands as one of underground rap’s fastest-rising producers. He 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 & 3”, “The Beat Tape Vol.1”, and his 1999 collaboration effort “Sound Bombing 2” (Rawkus Records) with fellow Beat Junkie, DJ J Rocc.

Now, DJ Babu, the Dilated Junkie, comes forth with his brand new instrumental album, “The Beat Tape Vol.2” (release date: 26.02.2010). “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.”
