A Visit From DJ Babu

September 15, 2008

A little footage I found from when the legendary DJ Babu guest deejayed on my radio show, back in 2002. Check out his beat-juggling on the Emotions' "Blind Alley." (Observers in the background are DJ Emskee, DJ Avee, Randy and the ever enthusiastic DJ Tomkat.)

Lol, Bigsby beat me to it.

Legendary, repping for the Pinoys and Pinays. Not like we're under-repped in DJing, lolz.

Oh man, that was amazing.

Jay, please don't hesitate for a second to put up stuff like this. I know you know your video show is like a mix, yo, so between your knowledge if you drop a little science demo (like this), well, that's fine and all part of the flow. Interlude!

Babu, one of the best to ever do it...

Man, your show must of brought so many people some great times. That is tight! Thanks for sharing.

Holy shizzle! That was tight! Thank you. It made my week.

C-A... All day!

mad skillz!!

I like the swing in that beat juggle. I get so used to hearing straight 4/4 out of the beat machines, that such things are a refreshing perspective.

Technique! No doubt, but can he do it on The Replicator?

I believe the device you are referring to is the "Weplicator"

YEP I remember. Crying right now. Where did those days go?

What up, Jay? Check out Ill Doctrine's spot on my blog The Official Marvel Guide To The Bloggerverse:

I did not know that was The Emotions all these years. Ultimate Beats and Breaks never gave the artists names. The emotions are one of the best girl groups of our times. Thanks ...now I gotta go see where I can find the original album.

hey whats the first song he used... the one with the piano keys?

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
