Roc Raida- NYC - Hip Hop/Turntablism
X-Ecutioners, Ill Tongue, Premiere Artists
In the late eighties Raida gained prominence as a member of the New York-based crew the X-Men who later became known as the X-ecutioners. Champions of furthering the turntablist movement, the X-ecutioners made their reputation by utilizing the techniques of beat-juggling; the manual alteration between individual kick and snare sounds to create original drum patterns in real time. This practice has been an inspiration and a force in Roc Raida’s style. His impressive finishes in some of the premier DJ battles; (first place in the 1991 "As One"; second place in the "Superman Battle"; and second place in the 1992 DMC US Finals, and 1995 DMC World Champion) as well as featured on an episode of "Saturday Night Live"; (the first DJ to ever) has made him an american icon. Inducted into the DMC Hall of Fame at the DMC World Finals in New York City, as well as the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Raida was appointed "Grandmaster", by some of Hip-Hop’s founding fathers. Raida solidifies his "Grandmaster" status by creating a vibrant mix of underground hip-hop skillfully creating a fantasy mix-show with a tongue-in-cheek look into the hip hop world. Now, traveling around the globe promoting the art of Turntablism in such exotic locations as Singapore, Turkey, Japan and Australia. Roc Raida is considered among the best of the contemporary DJ’s and has brought the underground art of Turntablism to a fresh new level.
