This gem landed in my inbox today. Full documentary drops July 2nd.
It’s been twenty years since the legendary Beat Junkies first shocked the Los Angeles hip-hop scene with their progressive approach to turntablism. To celebrate, the group has joined forces with LRG Clothing Company to present For the Record, the Beat Junkie Sound’s 20th anniversary documentary featuring A-Trak, Jazzy Jeff and other DJ legends about the group’s influence and impact on global hip-hop and DJ culture.
