MidWeek Mixes: DJ Matthew Africa – The Best of DJ Quik

For those in the East Bay who don’t know, Matthew Africa is the man. Not only has he left a legacy of great hip-hop, funk and soul music as a DJ at KALX Berkeley which I am graciously trying to follow, but for the past couple years, he has been running a fantastic blog, doing distinguished DJ appearance around the Bay Area and making amazing podcasts/mixes for us all to enjoy.

Since I was too busy last week to put up any mixes, I wanted to make up for it by posting a couple of Matthew Africa’s up on the site. Today, I want to share with you his tribute to “one of the most underrated major artists in rap music”, DJ Quik. Whether or not you agree with his sometimes vulgar or misogynistic rap lyrics, you gotta give props to Quik’s production style and to his contributions to West Coast hip hop culture as it was coming of age in the 1990s. The best thing is that it is free for download!! Check out a more in-depth description on Matthew Africa’s site.

    Hey, thanks for the kind words about me!

    I’m glad to see Students for Hip Hop is still active. I couldn’t help noticing there a few names/sites missing from your alumni roll call who would be good additions, like DJ Ice Water (http://www.djicewater.com/), Beni B (http://www.abbrecords.com/about.html) and DJ O-Dub (http://soul-sides.com/).

      No doubt! I love the mixes you’ve been doing. I wanted to get in touch with you cause I’m also a DJ at KALX and I’m trying to continue the rich history of hip-hop at the radio station. I’ve been posting my shows on soundcloud and occasionally host Yo! KALX Raps
