For those who like their b-boy beats raw like sushi, here's a full-on hour of music to rock to, courtesy of DJ JOHNNY DETT. The mix is entitled UNCUT RAW and the important thing you need to know here is that it was recorded stone cold LIVE. No special effects or musical trickery involved, just straight up badness on two turntables. JOHNNY is a member of the legendary TBB (THE BRONX BOYS) established in 1975 so you KNOW this mix is gonna include some thoroughbred beats that no self respecting b-boy or b-girl can ignore. Plus there are a few scorchers you won't have heard before and will wish you had!
Recently JOHNNY DETT was playing last weekend with DJ SKAMROK in Birmingham at the KING OF THE B-BOYS BATTLE run by DICE. DETT and SKAMROK have together been planning a proper mix CD release using tough b-boy breaks that haven’t been dug up before. It's not quite finished as I write this post but stay tuned to BREAKS FOR DAYS for more details as I get them from JOHNNY. In regards to "Uncut Raw" DETT himself explains ... "I did this live mix when I was getting records together for Birmingham and just pressed record; its not 4-tracked or anything, so excuse the mistakes! But I thought the mix had some good energy and a vibe to it, so here it is."
I agree with JOHNNY the vibe is definitely a good one, and I'm sure you're gonna love this selection of beats as I certainly do. So get listening and look out for DJ JOHNNY DETT TBB as he spins beats regularly in LONDON and around the UK.
