This month, J. Rocc released his first ever album, the gloriously sun-weathered Some Cold Rock Stuf for Stones Throw. To celebrate, we’re hosting a FACT mix of dusty house, hip-hop and disco from your boy; we’ve asked for a tracklisting, but don’t expect one to appear any time soon.
Grab the mix now, because it’s only going to be available for the next 2 weeks.

J Rocc co-hosted Benji B‘s Radio 1 show last week and previewed a good number of tunes from his upcoming Some Cold Rock Stuf album. He also played some unheard remixes and unreleased material from Madvillain and Madlib-produced Black Star! Turns out the Madvillain album may not be out for another 2 years…
J Rocc recently joined Benji B on his show on BBC Radio 1 for an exclusive preview of his upcoming album Some Cold Rock Stuf. He says it will be out in March. We shall see.
Download the first half of the show, Some Cold Stuf (preview), below or catch the full show on the BBC iPlayer.
Stones Throw head hancho PB Wolf put together a 50min mix of current and upcoming 2011 releases from ST veterans and new signees. Since I didn’t read the tracklist before listening (I never do– it sometimes spoils the surprise of it all) I was definitely caught off guard when I first listened to the mix. There’s a huge surprise right off the bat.
This is a 50-minute mixtape by Dimlite, one of electronic music’s most underrated talents. Another fan, Prefuse 73, introduced us to Dimlite a while back. His album ‘Prismic Tops‘ came out this year on Now-Again, and a new 10-inch is coming up early next year.
(Track list for Lit Paper Hats Forever TBA)
