FLAVORS(Recapping The Music Of The 90’s Era….The Golden Years), is an event conceptualized by the innovative minds of Keistar Productions and brought to the West Coast by Footlong_Development. The first installment of FLAVORS dates back to 2002 and was celebrated with none other than the incomparable DJ SPINNA.
For the 4th year straight 2 of the worlds best club DJs, DJ SPINNA & J.ROCC return to LA for this annual sold out event. With their extensive record collections and vast knowledge of all things music they create havoc on the dancefloor with the unforgotten hits of 90’s hip hop and RnB. Opening set by INKA ONE.
DJ SPINNA(BK NY)
DJ Spinna is something of an anomaly in music. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursure the full extent of his roots(Funk,Soul & Jazz), foundation(Hip Hop) and future(Electronic/Dance music) with no restraints. Regarded as one of the most versatile and talented producers/remixers/DJs in today’s musical arena. He has produced numerous tracks and remixes for notable artists such as Michael Jackson, De La Soul, Mary J. Blige, Mos Def, Eminem, George Michael, Stevie Wonder.
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 80’s 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 early 2000’s, was the 3rd member of Jaylib(Madlib & J Dilla) during the group’s live shows, collaborating with Madlib on Beat Konducta Vol.5-6: Atribute To J Dilla and can be seen touring the world solo and with BlackStarr(Mos Def & Talib Kweli)
J.Rocc just released full length album, Some Cold Rock Stuf on Stones Throw.
INKA ONE(LA CA)
Los Angeles native, Inka One has been busy. As a 17-year old hip hop head, his turntable fascination began in 2000 with mixing at its core. While attending college in Colorado, he helped run the syndicated college radio show “Basementalism” for 3+ years. That experience led to North American tours with The Procussions, Pigeon John and more. In 2006 he joined the renowned SoCal-based DJ collective known as the Beathackerz. That same year he founded Boombox, a monthly event that has booked legends from Pete Rock to Flying Lotus while becoming L.A.’s premier destination for both classic and future sounds.
