While J Rocc was down under schooling us on the tenets of true turntablism, we took him to task on his strongest spots for picking up deep cuts and strange creations. Unsurprisingly, the man with more than three decades of crate digging under his belt easily cut through our queries with the kind of list only a versed globetrotter could count up on the fly. Whether it’s in his home city of Las Angeles, the record meccas of Japan or layers deep in Damon Albarn’s personal shop in London, Rocc’s seen them and mined them for his nefarious musical purposes. Check his must-shop list above!

If you missed J ROCC while he was down in Australia last month with Red Bull Music Academy Club Night Series, the Red Bull squad are bringing out Taylor McFerrin (Brainfeeder/USA) next, for more instrumental hip-hop vibes. It’s free to attend so go ahead and RSVP here!
