25TH AUGUST: J ROCC // 26 AUGUST: LONNIE LISTON SMITH

We are excited to announce two stellar events with a slightly different flavour for the bank holiday weekend at end of August. Stones Throw representative J Rocc will be flying in from the States to bless us with a two hour set selecting a mixed bag from his extensive and eclectic record collection on Sunday night. Monday evening we will play host to a very special guest... The Great Lonnie Liston Smith! This rare intimate performance from one of contemporary music’s most versatile musicians will be an unmissable gig!

J Rocc
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, was a 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.
J Rocc has had releases on Stones Throw, Now Again, Sound Junkies, as well as doing mixes for the likes of FACT Magazine and a Thank You Jay Dee CD series, amongst many others.
