DJ Jazzy Jeff Shortkut Scratch Bastid 45 Sessions

This right here is some serious business. On December 5, the world famous DJ Jazzy Jeff is playing at Mighty in SF. That alone is a great thing, but check out who’s playing with him: Shortkut and Scratch Bastid. That’s a ridiculous amount of talent in just three guys. And then, we’ve got the 45 Sessions crew rocking the side room all night. You can’t possibly go wrong!

Well, there’s one way you can go wrong: Not going to this jam! And if you want to go, you’re definitely going to want to cop some presale tickets. Get ’em right here while they’re hot!

Large Professor. Strictly 45s. May 25.

I am beyond excited for this. If you know me, you know that Large Professor is pretty much my hero when it comes to hip-hop, so to get the chance to share a billing with him–spinning all 45s, no less–is an incredible honor for me. This is gonna be serious business, y’all. Do NOT miss out!

Big dudes. Little records.

This right here is serious business, y’all. After a brief hiatus, the 45 Sessions, aka the best damn party in Oakland, are back. And we’re back in style! We’re breaking new ground by taking this party to the legendary Yoshi’s jazz club. This is a big deal, as this is the first party of its kind to get into Yoshi’s, and you best believe we’re gonna do justice to this moment. In fact, we’re bringing out a heavy hitter for this one: The one and only DJ Shortkut. If you’ve never seen Short get busy with 45s, you are in for a treat, as he’s one of the nicest around when it comes to rocking the little records. And of course, your residents DJ Platurn, E Da Boss, and me will be bringing the flavor as well. You really don’t want to miss out on this. Here’s the rundown:

Wednesday, February 23

Yoshi’s (510 Embarcadero, Oakland)
The 45 Session: DJ Shortkut, DJ Platurn, E Da Boss, and DJ Enki spin funk, disco, hip-hop, rock, breaks, boogie, and all sorts of great tunes on nothing but 45s

Z-Trip/Shortkut/Carey Kopp/Oakland Faders (Friday, October 15)

Oh hell yeah!

The homie Z-Trip is finally coming back to play the Bay (at Mighty in SF), and this lineup is a doozy. Besides the man himself, you’ve got the legendary Shortkut, Mighty’s own Carey Kopp, and m’man DJ Platurn and me repping the Oakland Faders. Throw in the fact that it’s also Doc Fu’s birthday, and we’re damn near having a family reunion up in the club! Like D.O.C. said, this is serious business.
