DJ Babu

Sunday, November 19 by Dan Lo

... and as long as everyone is on the topic of crack cocaine, here's mine.

DJ Babu (who also goes by the name The Turntablist) is the DJ for the hip hop group Dilated Peoples. "DJ Babu in Deep Concentration" is the closing track of their 2004 album Neighborhood Watch and features DJ Babu delivering clean, straight forward scratches over a catchy laid back beat. The samples used include the recognizeable 'ahh', 'fresh', and *beep* and sounds very simple (albeit deceptively so) and is an absolute pleasure to listen to if you're in the mood for some good ol' fashioned scratching.

My favorite moment of the track occurs at 1:58 with a perfectly executed *beep*-'ahh' 1-2 punch. It doesn't get much better than that, folks.

edit: by *beep* I mean an actual beeping sound, not censoring anything.
