One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. He began DJing in the mid-’80s with a California group named PSK. Soon after forming, the Beat Junkies became a seminal force in the rise of instrumental hip-hop, including core member Babu plus future stars Shortkut and D-Styles.

In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J. Rocc has been the DJ for Madlib’s live shows since the early 2000’s, was the 3rd member of Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) during the group’s live events, and collaborated with Madlib on “Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6: A Tribute To J Dilla”.

Just recently J. Rocc has finished the work on his upcoming solo album for Stones Throw entitled “Some Cold Rock Stuf” (release date: 01.04.2011). But this is not a “DJ album”. Not a “beat album”. Not a mix tape. This is an original work of instrumental hip-hop … electronic music … dance music … smoke tracks … assorted cold rock stuff.

“Some Cold Rock Stuf” also contains a “mystery disc”, one of three mystery discs included in different copies of the album. No track list is provided for the “mystery disc” and the CD label does not distinguish one mystery disc from the other.

The vinyl release is a 3/LP set – album and mystery disc – with a triple gatefold, double sided poster, and sticker sheet. The CD is double disc (album and mystery disc) packaged in a custom-made 12-panel digipak. Album illustration by Gustavo Eandi, design by Jeff Jank. Photo of J Dilla & J. Rocc by Egon, circa 2005. Comes with poster and sticker sheet!
