DJ B.Cause Presents – Playin’ Kinda Ruff (The Troutman Legacy)

Share Button


I found this great mix of Zapp and Roger stuff over on DJ B.Cause’s erstwhile Diamonds In The Dust blog. Here B.Cause compiles a number of their well known staples and throws in some more obscure cuts and guest turns for good measure. The bulk of it leans towards the mellow, so the mix is more suited to sparking a joint than to sparking up the dance floor.

B.Cause’s own description:

I’ve had it in my mind to do this project for a long time, but it just kept getting pushed back…of course I picked an opportune time amongst the hectic holidays to put the deadline on myself – doh! Regardless, I’m really excited and proud to present this new mix, as Roger and Zapp have always inspired so many with their unique and pioneering brand of futuristic funk. You will hear most of the staples as well as plenty of lesser known rap choruses and interludes, and your usual assortment of blends and cuts that were probably over-scrutinized in the process of creation. Rest in peace Roger & Larry, & much respect to the entire Troutman family.
