Biography

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. Born Jason Jackson, 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. The group won federation championships in 1997 and 1998, after which they collectively retired from competition. Beat Junkies mixes and studio material continued to pour out. J-Rocc’s first widely issued mix album, Walkman Rotation, appeared in 1998 on Conception, and he also worked with Babu on the turntablist compilation Soundbombing, Vol. 2, plus as the Bumrush Brothers.
