Member of the World Famous Beat Junkies and Stones Throw resident DJ, J-Rocc is making his solo debut with Some Cold Rock Stuf, which is not a “DJ album” nor a beat album, shit it ain't even a mixtape. J-Rocc's debut is the amalgamation of years spent cultivating instrumental hip hop, touring with Madlib and Dilla as the third member of the Jaylib tour and the accumulation of the funkiest breaks on the planet.
Some Cold Rock Stuf is a style war pitting the congo-funk of b-boy break cuts against the meditative nostalgia of the Entroducing-era of instrumental hip hop. In addition to the album itself, each record comes with a “mystery disc,” which comes in three variations. The mystery disc has no track listing and there's no way of telling which mystery stew you will sample.
Some Cold Rock Stuf is out April 5 on Stones Throw.
