DJ JS-1 "Sound Waves: Cold Cutz Remixes 2"

DJ JS-1 "Cold Cutz Remixes 2" 
79 minutes of exclusive turntable remixes... 

In the mid 90's myself and Dj Spinbad did the "Cold Cutz Remixes (If I Ruled The Radio)" mixtape. We made that mixtape on broken 4-track-cassette recorders. We remixed tons of acapellas, and every song on the mixtape was an exclusive blend we did using turntables only. We re-scratched the song hooks, added sound fx, did some scratch interludes and really set the bar high for mixtape production. To date, that mixtape has reached tens of thousands of people and is considered one of the best mixtapes of all-time. This new mix was not supposed to be the specific part 2 to that mix, but it's done in a similar way and it is the "unofficial" part 2. There is ONLY acapella remixes on this new mix as well. I tried to use acapellas that we didn't use on the first one and also tried to squeeze in some rare ones too. There are some really great acapellas on here like The Symphony (Masta Ace verse), Peter Piper by Run Dmc, Full Clip by Gangstarr, Set It Off by Big Daddy Kane, Eric B is President by Eric B & Rakim, Mama Said Knock You Out by LL Cool J, The Bitch in Yoo by Common, n more... A mix like this is completely opposite of many lazy djays' mixes that let songs play all the way and then talk or play sound fx in between every track. This involves soo much more, and is soo much more fun to make. I used hundreds of different beats and acapellas. 

Today most music has become free online and the mixtape game is not what it once was. It's easy to find thousands of mixtapes for free download, i know i posted all of mine for free download at: (
Sooo, with everything being free, in order to make it worthwhile for someone to possibly purchase a CD, I have continued to make mixes that i noticeable put lots of work into. All i really ask is that people spread the word and get these mixes out there. Please re-post this, email it to your friends, re-tweet this, etc... (There is the buttons to re-post on facebook and twiiter below this post) Lets keep the pressure on all those horrible djays out there and try to keep some respect, honor, dignity and skills to the mixtape legacy. 

Special Thanks to my friends and co-djays who gave me a few treats for this mix cd....  Dj Premier, JBX & Big City Records, Dj Eclipse & Fatbeats, Dj Riz, 
Mix Greens, Dj Young C, and Dj Ody Roc... they all contributed acapellas to this mix....

DJ JS-1 "Live From HeadQCourterz 8/20/10"

DJ JS-1 "Live From HeadQcourterz" (8/20/10)

Two weeks ago on August 20th, 2010, i filled in for DJ Premier on his Live From HeadQCourterz Show on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. He was in California performing at Rock The Bells. It's always cool to do a radio show and play new hiphop. With stores like FatBeats closing we are losing more and more avenues to get new independent hiphop to the public. With major radio and club djays NEVER supporting new hiphop, at least there are these type of satellite shows that do. Sooo, i picked my favorite new songs of that week and cut them up live friday night... This version, i edited out the first few talk breaks so it's all music straight through. It's 90 minutes long. I hope you enjoy it. I know tons of people are downloading my mixes, which is great, i never would have expected it to be soo many. Ive got tens of thousands of downloads, which is incredible, but we must remember, these r just mixtapes (which people used to pay for, LOL), but many of us also make albums that we sell. This is our livelyhood, we spend time and money, and we dont expect others to do their jobs for free. Please go out and buy a new indie hiphop album in between spending a week's salary on a HORRIBLE pop concert with JayZ & Eminem.... c'mon son, lol.  Support new independent hiphop.... go to: & where you can purchase physical copies of new albums on vinyl and cd, with artwork and bonus dvd's, etc....
