“Some Cold Rock Stuf” is the debut album of original music from one of the original turntablists, the longtime DJ for Madlib and the late J Dilla, and our pick for world’s greatest hip-hop DJ. 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.

J. Rocc first made his name as co-founder of The World Famous Beat Junkies in the 1990s with Rhettmatic, Melo D, DJ Babu and Shortkut, becoming a seminal force in the rise of turntablism and instrumental hip-hop. He went on to host The Fantastic Four Radio show on L.A.’s Power 106, perform as the third member of Madlib & J Dilla’s Jaylib, and tour the world as a solo artist, DJ and producer.

“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 3LP 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!
