I got a chance to see one of the best DJ’s in the world perform for a Stones Throw showcase at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last night. J Rocc played a set heavy with work from his late friend and collaborator J Dilla that also touched on many other classic hiphop producers and their sample sources. J Rocc is an animated dude who brings the music he’s spinning to life with his obvious love for it. His music knowledge and hand skills are legendary and it’s always a treat to see him play. I wish I could say the same for Madlib who lulled the crowd into a bored trance with his wall rattling bass and obscure music selections. Madlib is still a talented producer with a catalog full of classics but whether he’s rapping, dj-ing or both he has to be one of the worst live performers I’ve ever seen.
