KCRW and the Annenberg Foundation present the three-concert Sound in Focus series this summer.

J Rocc is the visionary leader behind the world famous Beat Junkies, a turntablist collective founded in Orange County. He joins Anthony Valadez for a live guest DJ set.

I have been a big fan of this young producer’s work. He seems to drop wonderful remixes and re-edits out of nowhere on his Soundcloud page. His latest EP Vibração Comigo (Vibe With Me) explores the elements of Brasil with 1/2 time bass rhythms and sounds.

Brainfeeder's Lapalux visits for a guets dj mix.
