Prince Paul & DJ Platurn Mini-Set & Signing at Amoeba Berkeley

Prince Paul & DJ Platurn Mini-Set & Signing

Amoeba Berkeley – March 24th @ 4:00pm

Join us in welcoming Hip-hop legend Prince Paul and renowned turntablist DJ Platurn to Amoeba Berkeley on Saturday, March 24th at 4pm for a mini-set and signing! DJ Platurn’s new album Breaking The Ice releases on March 23rd. Buy it at Amoeba Berkeley to get it signed.

Breaking the Ice is an extended mix of rare—mostly never before heard—Icelandic tracks that are heavily underscored with funk, soul, disco, and in-the-pocket rhythms, all of which are expertly mixed by DJ Platurn. The music presented has been compiled through a lifetime of collecting, while others have been passed down through Platurn’s familial, musical roots. The packaging includes rare photos, via Platurn’s father Magnus Thordarson, and other ephemera from Iceland’s small yet vibrant music scene during the late 1960s thru the early 1980s. The release also features extensive liner notes by longtime music journalist David Ma, couching the music’s history as well and the region’s bygone era in which it arose.

Prince Paul — DJ, Producer, man of mystery, crime fighter, people’s champion, Hip-hop skit pioneer, producer of three Grammy Award-winning albums, and so much more — has been behind Hip-Hop’s most creative projectss including The Gravediggaz, Handsomeboy Modeling School, The Dix, Stetsasonic, Dew Doo Man, De La Soul, Negroes on Ice, and DDS. Paul considers himself quiet, quirky, and humble. “I didnt see this coming”…I thought I was going to be a postman.”

Prince Paul

Beginning his career as a DJ for Stetsasonic, rapper and producer Prince Paul has lent his skills to albums by Boogie Down Productions, Gravediggaz, MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane, and 3rd Bass, among others. Paul’s big break came when he produced De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising album. Shattering the acknowledged rules of hip-hop production, he sampled not only funk, but all types of music to create fresh and original backing tracks. By throwing in comedy sketches as well, Prince Paul and De La Soul completely ushered in a new era for hip-hop. In 1994, Paul returned to rapping, joining RZA and Stetsasonic member Frukwan in Gravediggaz, a side project that debuted with 6 Feet Deep. He also began working with the new elite in underground rap, recruiting the Automator, New Kingdom’s Scott Harding, and Spectre for his debut solo album, 1997’s Psychoanalysis: What Is It? A Prince Among Thieves followed in 1999, and later that year Paul formed Handsome Boy Modeling School with the Automator to release the album So…How’s Your Girl?. His own Politics of the Business, another concept album that was more bitter than biting, surfaced in 2003 (a year after a second Handsome Boy Modeling School album), and was followed by 2005’s Itstrumental, as well as the archival compilation Hip Hop Gold Dust.

Peanut Butter Wolf

Lately, PB Wolf has moved away from producing (save the odd remix or compilation track) to build the Stones Throw label and to travel as a DJ to Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and across the US. Through his willingness to experiment and provide Stones Throw’s artists with musical carte blanche, he has overseen the releases of Lootpack’s Soundpieces, Quasimoto’s The Unseen, Breakestra’s Live Mix, Yesterdays New Quintet’s Angles Without Edges, Madlib’s Shades of Blue, and Jaylib’s Champion Sound.

J Rocc

One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. He began DJing in the mid-’80s with a California group named PSK. Soon after forming, the Beat Junkies became a seminal force in the rise of instrumental hip-hop, including core member Babu plus future stars Shortkut and D-Styles. In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J. Rocc has been the DJ for Madlib’s live shows since the early 2000’s, was the 3rd member of Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) during the group’s live events, and collaborated with Madlib on Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6: A Tribute to J Dilla.

Dam Funk

As a DJ/selector, Dãm attracts the most discerning Boogie Funk afficionados within driving distance of his storied Monday-night Funkmosphere parties. But it’s not just collectors at the bar toasting to the melodic sounds. Anyone who grooves to the likes of Slave, Aurra, early Prince, Prelude Records and the like, will get a dose of those groups’ unknown contemporaries – more obscure but equally Funk-worthy.

DJ Shortkut

No other DJ in the world will ever be a member of the three most innovative and influential DJ crews to ever exist. As a member of the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Beat Junkies and Triple Threat DJs, Shortkut’s contributions to the DJ world greatly assisted in building this culture into the multi-million dollar industry it is today.  His years of musical experience and unparalleled presence in the national and international circuits exemplifies his passion and dedication to a culture he helped create.  In 2007, Shortkut celebrated 20 years as a DJ, producer, DJ equipment designer, and battle champion.

DJ Platurn

An 18 year veteran of the music industry, Platurn has traveled the world many times over bringing phenomenal music to phenomenal people. A member of the Oakland Faders & Founder of the 45 Sessions, an ALL 45 inch records party held in the bay area.
