Dj Bacon releases his first solo recording project since his 2008 vinyl release. His new release “RUN–BST Megamix” is a shout out to hip hop pioneers and Bacons heroes Run DMC & the Beastie Boys. The 8 minute track features over 150 samples, loops, breaks and scratches stitched together in a way only an old school DJ could, using samples from only Run Dmc and Beastie Boys releases.
Over the last 6 months DJ Bacon has lived in his studio spending his spare time manipulating hundreds of vinyl samples just for this mix . Speaking with his hands – he has made rhymes come together from different records and kept the melodies in key and on beat throughout the journey.
The epic 8 minute Megamix is dedicated to passed RUN DMC and Beastie Boys members Jam Master Jay, Adam Yauch and original RUN DMC producer Larry Smith.
Released on the anniversary of Jam Master Jays passing, all profits from the release will be donated back to the Jam Master Jay and Adam Yauch foundations to further the legacy they created and invest in future music and community projects the foundations are supporting. Particularly music projects for youth.
Rest in peace Jam Master Jay, MCA & Larry Smith.
