There have been a few standout performances on DJcity’s MikiDz Show over the years, but Monday’s episode with Teeko was one of the most innovative. The Bay Area native’s set featured skilled turntablism, soulful instrumentation, and raps from special guest Aziz the Shake. Teeko’s setup was also unorthodox, as it consisted of a Vestax Controller One turntable, Native Instruments Z2 mixer and F1 controller, Roland Gaia synth, and talk box. There’s a reason why legends like DJ Jazzy Jeff, A-Trak, and Shortkut have praised Teeko, and on Monday he showed it once again.

Equipped with dozens of records, Armstrong reminded DJs of what it was like in the pre-Serato days. He also schooled viewers on the art of sampling, by playing classic tracks back-to-back with the hip-hop hits that sampled them. It was a journey through music history.
Armstrong’s interview with hosts MikiWAR and DJ Dainjazone was just as interesting. The New York native discussed his legendary mixtapes, what it was like being Jay Z’s tour DJ, Shortkut’s influence on him, among other topics.

It’s been a great year for DJcity’s MikiDz Show so far. Since January, we’ve featured legends like Craze and Just Blaze and new generation icons like Vekked and ESKEI83. On Monday, we added yet another heavyweight to the list: Four Color Zack. As usual, the former Red Bull Thre3style World Champ served up a variety of genres, laced together with creative tone play and word play. Included in his selection were some of our favorite trap and future bass heaters, along with unreleased tracks by him and Craze.

Vekked, the reigning DMC World and DMC Online champion, lived up to his titles last Monday with an incredible set for DJcity’s MikiDz Show. The Canadian’s 53-minute performance was unique in terms of selection, from hip-hop and soul to rock and drum and bass.
After his performance, Vekked took part in a candid and insightful interview with hosts MikiWAR and Styles Davis. The conversation focused on his unusual background, the current state of turntablism, his recent entry into TV scoring, and more.
