On November 4, Berkeley, California will experience Bhangra, B-Boys, and Breakbeats. The night will showcase Mandeep Sethi, Lal, Hoodini & King, Baagi, Violinder, SF B-Bboys, and Bar- B Bhangra. doc bLAdez makes his contribution with a fresh mixtape: The 5abi B-Boy Vol II: Battle of the DJs (doc bLAdez vs Tru Skool).
doc bLAdez has created a 20 minutes mixtape featuring mixes only by Tru Skool with his own rendition and “tweeking” of them. “Tru Skool is an awesome producer who has kept his beats hardcore with classic Hip-Hop and Bhangra influences,” doc bLAdez tells DesiHipHop.com.
“He’s like a DJ Premier of Desi Hip-Hop. I feel like the man is on the same wave-length that I am, and he’s on the other side of the world, plus we’ve never met. JK also won BritAsiaTV’s album of the year award with Tru Skool’s beats. I’ve put together this mosaic of his songs, Hip-Hop classics, and my own scratches. Because I can not attend the Nov 4th event, I’m putting forth my contribution to the event by dedicating this mix to Bhangra, B-Boys and Breakbeats. This event represents everything that I stand for as a DJ.”
