Bomb Hip-Hop is working on three new compilations.

First is the sixth volume of Return of the DJ. Return of the DJ is the all dj/all scratching “turntablist” series. As featured in the motion picture Scratch. All turntablists should feel free to submit a track for consideration.

We are also working on two rap compilations. Many know us for our turntablist compilations but we have released some killer rap compilations as well. Our previous rap compilations have featured Blackalicious, Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf, Mystik Journeymen, Defari, J-Live, Dilated Peoples, AG (Andre the Giant from the Diggin in the Crates crew-DITC), Rasco, Swollen Members, Jedi Mind Tricks, Shabazz the Disciple, Abstract Rude, Azeem, Foreign Legion, J-Zone and many more.

One of the rap compilations will be a follow up to the 1994 Bomb Hip Hop Compilation. It will feature just Bay Area artists – a best of the best! The other compilation will be a follow up to the 2001 Droppen the Bomb compilation and feature artists from all over the US. Rappers and rap groups, feel free to submit a track for consideration.

It’s official – the DJ is dead. Make room for the CJ (click jockey). Turntables – don’t need them, mixer – don’t need them, headphones – don’t need them. Guess all you need to rock a party nowadays is a computer, a mouse, and Ableton Live installed. I think Ableton is a great production tool – but someone DJ’ing that way where everything can be in perfect time and there is no chance of messing up kinda takes the fun out of it. Partygoers just don’t seem to care… they just want 20 seconds each of all of their favorite songs all in a night…
