Watch Da Odd Couple’s ‘MikiDz Show’ Set

Da Odd Couple perform on the “MikiDz Show”

Renowned turntablists Rob Swift and Mista Sinista, also known as Da Odd Couple, threw down an energetic four-deck set on the MikiDz Show on Monday. They flexed their skills in a set full of classic east coast hip-hop.

The DJs started out in the battle scene in the early ’90s as members of the X-Men (later known as the X-Ecutioners). Swift and Sinista reunited after 17 years to keep the art of turntablism alive through their live performances and a self-tited EP released on A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold label.

Watch their set and interview below. An audio-only version is also available via Apple Podcasts, Mixcloud, and Spotify.
