DJ JAFFA @ CAI on Saturday June 5th alongside DJ DSK + CANTALOOP (Live)
Hip-hop properly came to Cardiff back in the early to mid 80s. The first Hip-hop jam was on Queen Street when DJ Jaffa, a breakdancer since 1982 and DJ since 85, plugged his decks into Rudis Donut Store and invited any budding MCs to jump up. Since then Jaffa has been a cornerstone of the scene. He was signed up early to Jive Records (later the home of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears) alongside MC Eric (who would go on to join Technotronic and eventually become Me One) and has since DJ’d and produced for the likes of Keisha White, 365, E Dro, Tystion, Bench, Manchild and The Simpsons (yup as in Homer, Bart, etc). He currently holds the UK record for longest DJ set at 70 hours and has a never ending record bag of everything from Funk to Dubstep. A true legend and a great DJ.
As the sun has finally come out, DJ Jaffa has put together this great podcast using tracks that have Sun or Sunshine on the title.
