Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
When asked if he thought Serato was a good thing for DJ culture, world-famous beat junky and soul-music aficionado J. Rocc responded with a resounding 'yes,' but then followed it up with an explanation that you have to do something special with it. He then got on the turntables and proceeded to dice up a James Brown break into a mystifying mix of drums, 'huh's' and 'ha's' and blasting horns; essentially transforming the original cut into something wonderfully different. To see J. spin is to witness an amazing display of skill with the only problem occurring when you're trying to decide if you want to watch him mix or dance your ass off (it's a win-win situation.)

Early arrival is highly recommended, as prior to J. there will be a screening for one of Mochilla's (B+ and Eric Coleman) newest projects, "Timeless Suite for Ma Dukes," a performance honoring the music of the late J-Dilla. The screening is an event within itself as the doc. features a 60-piece orchestra (directed by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson) playing the music of Dilla. Guest appearances in the film include Bilal, Dwele, Posdnuos, Talib Kweli, Bob Power and more. B+ and Eric will be spinning as well, which will make this a must-attend event for all hip-hop fans. (J.
