In three weeks, Destructo‘s inaugural All My Friends festival will take place in downtown Los Angeles. The two-day event will feature a diverse lineup of artists from across the hip-hop, R&B, and dance worlds.
Included in the lineup are legendary DJs and Jurassic 5 members, Cut Chemist and Nu-Mark. To showcase the festival’s eclectic bill, both joined Destructo on Monday for a unique episode of DJcity’s MikiDz Show live stream.
Chemist kicked off the night with an eye-popping set of turntablism, making full use of his equipment. He was followed by Destructo, who dropped a signature set of g-house, including many of his own tracks. Closing out the night was Nu-Mark, who put down an all-45 set, which included impressive juggles and other tricks. It was only the second time that a DJ performed an all-vinyl set on the show (the first was DJ Neil Armstrong).

The Boiler Room took a break from their usual electronic and hip-hop acts to host a turntablism party on Tuesday night. The show, which went down in Oakland, California, featured sets from the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Cut Chemist, J. Espinosa, and Great Dane. Representing the ISP were DJ QBert, D-Styles, and DJ Shortkut.
The night was kicked off by Great Dane, a member of the influential Team Supreme production crew. The Fullerton, California native put down 45 minutes of trap and future bass.
J. Espinosa, the 2015 Red Bull 3Style US champion, followed with an epic set of Bay Area hip-hop and turntablism. The crowd loved it, and so did Cut Chemist, who performed after Espinosa.
“That’s a tough act to follow,” the Jurassic 5 member told the crowd when he took over the turntables. As one fan on Twitter put it, “I’ll never hear Bay classics the same way after hearing what J. Espinosa did to [them]…”
Cut Chemist lived up to his name by dropping a creative and technical performance using both turntables and CDJs. His set included hip-hop, breakbeats, African music, and a guest performance from Blackalicious rapper Gift of Gab. It was the perfect segue into the Invisibl Skratch Piklz, who took the crowd to outer space and beyond.
