Costa Mesa, CA 92627
A fellow countryman, a brother from another Greek Mother, Cocoe Tsimahidis is proudly putting on the 14th year anniversary of Abstract Workshop! Cocoe is bringing in the man who he considers his biggest influence, J-Rocc, and also Stones Throw label head Peanut Butter Wolf. Spinning alongside them will be Cocoe, Scotty Coats, Josh One & Mr. Hyder.
This is the first event I have featured where the music is steeped in hip-hop influences, I personally never sought out hip-hop records or did much solo listening of my own, but I always appreciated coming across a talented turntabilist. Listening to a well versed DJ put down an instrumentalist hip-hop set, I get the chance to hear funk, disco, and boogie cut up and rearranged like I’ve never heard before. J-Rocc is a perfect example of how a well versed DJ cuts across all boundaries, he may be considered a hip-hop DJ but he knows more about disco & soul than I do for sure. He puts down edits that stand up to any of the disco-edit big guns out there. Have a listen for yourself.
