DJ: J. Love The Soundsmith
Released: October 2012
We are super excited to welcome childhood friend and DJ extraordinaire, DJ J. Love, The Soundsmith, who currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota (home to our boy P). Jeff and Ron Worthy, founder of soulhead.com, went to high school together, banged on desks, pretended to rap and even went to college together in California, which was rare at the time from two Washington, D.C. graduates. Jeff has stayed true to the game and has spread his musical wings, for which we are grateful. Check out his cool Halloween mix, which includes some classic and unexpected flavors, as you begin preparing for trick or treating!
J. Love The Soundsmith has been in the DJ game for over 20 years, having gotten his start on college radio in Los Angeles in the early 1990’s. He has been active in the Hip Hop scene ever since, making mixtapes, DJing live in clubs and on radio, and touring with underground Hip Hop groups on the west coast, and the midwest. He draws inspiration for his style of turntablism from such legends as The Numarx, KDAY Mixmasters, DJ Rob*One, The World Famous Beat Junkies, as well as battle /performance DJ’s worldwide.
Currently, J. Love The Soundsmith can be heard on RSE Radio, Rhymesayers Entertainment‘s very own weekly radio show on KFAI-FM in Minneapolis, MN. Podcasts can be found online at www.rhymesayers.com/radio.
