Words by J.Rocc 2009 (

It’s been a tough one this year.

If your expecting a bunch of song you know and love this isn’t for you.
If your looking for something to help you get over thangs or even just vibe out to.
This is for you.

Jrocc, Live at the Sex Machine, circa 1999 < download full mix tape

This one is for you to pop on your car stereo and cruise in style to your dance destination on a Saturday night.

The Funky President is no stranger to extra sounds on a mix tape.  To assimilate the “live” situation and make it more real, Jrocc added a background crowd sound and voices, blending in some of the most exquisite sounds that a Hip-Hop club could experience in the late 90’s.

From TCQ cuts to Jazz breaks to shouting out some of the homies “in the place to be”.  This timeless “live” mix will make you get the f**k up and come out to dance or at least come out to listen to some good as music… Inspired!.  Don’t look for this release nowadays.  Is long gone…  Part II was also made, that one is still reachable to the public.

Jrocc 1998, Dolo Lounge, Artesia CA

Anyhow… More Jrocco! enjoy this Saturday, Father’s day weekend.

And Happy Fathers Day to all the Homies pushing Knowledge to their youth!

One heart!

SYNDROMES 1996 by J.Rocc (download full mix)

SYNDROMES Part I (Original Version) circa 1996

JROCC photo by Shin Okishima

SYNDROMES was a tape given to me around 1997 the tape was made circa 1996.  I met Jason “Jrocc” Jackson summer of 1996 in Cerritos.  The city wasn’t aware of the little mecca that it would become in the years to come as some of the most talented djs in the world would call it home.  But Jrocc was not from Cerritos.  I’ll leave that as a mystery if you don’t know.

Syndromes is not your regular Hip-Hop mix tape, because is not pure Hip-Hop is Jazz.  An eclectic mixture of songs from various Jazz icons like Roy Ayers, Freddie Hubbard, David Axelrod and other Jazz figures that producers have sampled and would sample in the years to come.

The tape was a blue print for my journey into the art of digging records.  This tape exposes me to a different sound in where I found a new inspiration for collecting vinyl records.  I was not familiar to a mature sound, as Jazz is to me.  Nevertheless it didn’t take to long for me to appreciate more of the versatile music world in which I was encountering as I found places and spots to dig.  Thrift Shops was the 1st choice during the late 90’s.

From the moment the tape is play to the end of the cassette is a continues journey into a time capsule of Jazz’s most beautiful sounds.

I’m not kidding, I would take the tape j-card cover with me every time I dug for new records. From thrift shops to garage sales to flea markets… I had the idea to get every single LP on that tape… Ah! Eddie Kendricks’ “Intimate Friends”… Uff! that sound took me to a whole different level of listening to music via records.  It was my new thing, my new kind of herb.  Diggin’ became the past time thing for me on a personal level.  To find an old sound that can still be related to our present times.

Jrocc was asked by friends and peers to bring the tape back.  He did! …   Some time around the mid 2000’s Syndromes remix was dropped.  It had about 75% of the same content as the original version, but with additions of some of the songs sampled in Hip-Hop.  Like Tribe Call Quest, KRS 1 and others.

Personally it don’t compare to what I was given in 1997, but the remix still a favorite till this day.  There is also Syndromes II, but that is an entire different story.  For now…

“That is what Syndromes tape (original version)  means to me”
