I haven't blogged about Mista J for a while now. Not a lot going on that I have been privy too. But hot damn, I just read he did a dj set at Coachella that was super cool, and thus simply must have a mention.

You know, a lot of people nowadays "dj" with iTunes and/or CDs, and use programs to match their beats for them. Apparently, this does not apply to David J.

That's a Victrola yo! Spinning 78s. Sweet.
