(2xCD) Ground Original/Fat Beats Records JS1GO3CD, 2011-06-21

If you're fed up with producers who make "fake J Dilla beats" and "pop-star radio DJs" like DJ JS-1 is, the best thing to do is slap them across the face with some real boom bap sounds. So that's exactly what the Queens, New York DJ did with his new single, Boom Slap, and who better to amp up the slap than two of the kings of boom bap, KRS-One and Rahzel. The respective visionaries of rapping and beat boxing join their friend JS-1 on the first leak from No One Cares, which will be released on June 21st via Fat Beats Records. "My biggest selling single to date was my first single, Essentials, which featured KRS & Rahzel," says JS-1. "That was on my first album, Ground Original 1 in 2002. With this album being Ground Original 3 and the final installment of that series, I wanted to close out with a KRS & Rahzel track. Since his start in the early 90's, DJ JS-1 has witnessed hip-hop evolve over the years, and Boom Slap explains exactly how he feels about hip-hop in 2011. "I'm all about boom bap, regardless of how some of these new-jacks feel," explains the DJ/producer. "There are tons of people making pretty music, and that's nice for an R&B group, but we make that boom bap that slaps you when you hear it." This song does just that, as JS-1's hard-hitting beat serves as the foundation for Rahzel's background vocals and patented vocal scratches, while KRS verbally assaults the beat with his unmistakable flow. "The style of hip hop we create is not going anywhere," says JS-1. "People can say what they want - make what they want - but this style will always be here. Forever, and ever, we will be here forever..."

Biography :
During the past decade the “DJ / turntablist” has gained even more notoriety and popularity. One “DJ” at the forefront of this movement is Queens native, DJ JS-1 from New York City. As a member of the world famous Rock Steady Crew and partner with Rahzel (the world's #1 beatboxer), JS-1 has toured the planet doing over 1,200 shows in more than 40 countries and hundreds of cities. Starting out in the late 80's and honing his craft through out the 90's, JS-1 has consistently been one of the hardest-working “djays” around. From his earlier tracks on the “Return of the DJ” series in the mid 90's, to his countless classic mixtapes, top-selling break records like Scratch Roulette, several 12” singles, 5 full length solo albums, producing a Sadat X solo album, tons of guest appearances, and also touring with KRS-ONE, DJ JS-1 has stayed relevant and busy.

While building a fan base by producing all these projects and constantly touring, JS has also been on television many times. His first major appearances coming in 1999 on MTV Jams and MTV's Millenium New Years Party lead to other opportunities like being on BET's Rap City for an entire week, being on MTV NEWS, MTV Campus Invasion Tour special, appearing on MTV MADE (2008), and the first-ever DJ appearance on REGIS & KELLY Live (ABC) morning show. DJ JS-1 has also been on numerous television shows in other countries, and even appeared in commercials for BET (2000), TNN for James Bond (2002), and the NFL Network (2009). Known for rocking festivals, concerts and clubs opening for major acts, scratching with his foot, and his extensive catalog of underground hip hop productions, he has entertained millions of different people around the world. DJ JS-1 has also done several corporate gigs, djaying or producing music for Bacardi, Activision Games (Tony Hawk), Mossimo, Kool Cigarettes, Benson N Hedges, Redbull, Heineken, Adidas, Video Game Awards, ABC/Disney, HBO, Twix, Truth (anti-smoking campaign), Bloomberg Corp, and others. Many of these appearances and albums have lead to interviews and reviews in major publications like Source Magazine, XXL magazine, Urb magazine, Rolling Stone magazine, Fader magazine, as well as his constant presence on all the biggest hip hop websites and blogspots. Last year alone, JS-1 had music, interviews or reviews on hundreds of sites. The assortment of 12” singles and albums he has produced and released via FATBEATS has separated him from most of the other “DJ / turntablists” in the world who do not produce their own music.

Besides shining brightly in a world clouded with too many typical djays, DJ JS-1 has also been a prominent graffiti writer, doing hundreds of “pieces” at all the major hall of fames. Realizing his artistic talent as a graff-writer in the late 80's, JS aka “JERMS” (graffiti name), has been featured in most of the popular graffiti magazines around the world (like “Can Control”), his graff has appeared in major music videos, and he has worked with some legendary graffiti artists as well. With his dj skills, graffiti skills, countless mixes and albums, rock steady crew background, and decade of touring with the best beatboxer ever, JS-1 has done more than most to help promote the "true skool" elements of real Hip Hop around the world. He is one of the few remaining djays carrying the torch for what Grand Master Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Jam Master Jay and others before him have started.

Overall, it's obvious that DJ JS-1 keeps himself very busy between producing new albums and touring around the globe. After the release of his latest album, NO SELLOUT in 2009, it was another year of touring and interviews. This year, 2011 is shaping up to be the same with JS-1 planning to release, NO ONE CARES his next full length LP. Look out for DJ JS-1 of the Rock Steady Crew and Rahzel to be touring through a city near you...
