j.rocc-enjoyed-the-experience

Following in the lineage of his series of now-classic megamix 12-inches on both Now-Again and Stones Throw, J.Rocc now tackles the privately-pressed albums found within the oddities contained in Sinecure Books. As per normal, knocking drums, quirky samples and a master’s touch abound on all three selections on this hard-hitting, fast-paced EP. Now-Again will soon offer this EP at Drip.fm. Regular vinyl versions are in stores now. A deluxe version of this EP – limited to 100 pieces – will soon see release via Sinecure Books’ webstore. Each of these 100 deluxe packages will come with a unique vanity LP from the 60s or 70s.
