Another milestone!! As the LL Mix Series hits a new half-century, it felt apt to invite another hugely influential magician. "I'M SO DETROIT!"
Detroit legend DJ Godfather blends together a juicy and scratched-up 1h mix, also as a celebration of his new album - 'This Detroit Thing Of Ours' - released earlier this month on his very own label, Databass - ffm.to/djgod-detroit.
DJ Godfather (Brian Jeffries) is one of the founding fathers of the Detroit Ghettotech scene. He started DJing at the age of 15 and within a few months was already playing in clubs and after-hour parties across the Motor City.
By 17 he’d started making music and a year later, released his first solo record on Twilight 76 (the label he started with DJ Dick and Brian Gillespie).
The creation of other labels followed including the influential Databass, which he revived in 2018. With a career spanning near on 3 decades, he’s continued to deliver the goods as well as supporting new Detroit talent, as his Godfather moniker implies.
As a DJ, his battle style turntablism has made him a hero in his city - you only have to witness the crowds he pulls at Detroit’s Movement Festival, and the many places around the globe where he’s laid down his fine-tuned skills.
Over the years it’s gained him worldwide recognition and various DJing accolades.
Now back with a brand-new album, DJ Godfather breaks all the rules. The album features 46 tracks and like his last album ('Electro Beats For Freaks'), they segue into one another, until the series of EPs on vinyl (and digital) which will follow featuring full-length versions and different mixes of some of the album's tracks.
