DJ Qbert – Extraterrestria (Album Review)

In a brilliant strategy that’s enabled him to satisfy two different kinds of fans, Bay Area scratch legend DJ Qbert dropped two crowdfunded albums simultaneously on iTunes on July 1: the all-instrumental album Extraterrestria and GalaXXXian, a collection of radio- or club-friendly yet still unmistakably underground-sounding joints with guest features by the likes of Kool [&hellip

It’s with great interest that I receive the news of a new Suff Daddy project. I’ve been following him for some time now and have thoroughly enjoyed his progress as a producer. He’s a busy guy. It doesn’t seem so long ago that I was listening to the Betty Ford Boys album (another of Suff [&hellip
