DJ Eclipse digs in his VHS crates and posts ups another gem. Peep the info below and enjoy:

In 1997 Company Flow, The Juggaknots and J-Treds joined forces to become The Indelibles. What we have here is footage from their Fat Beats NYC in-store for the release of “The Fire In Which You Burn” (Official/Rawkus). Watch Breeze Brewin’, J-Treds, El-P and Bigg Jus rip the mic (one mic at that) as they perform “Fire” while Mr. Len aka Space Ghost spins the instrumentals. Then get ready for some bonus rounds with additional footage from some of the aforementioned along with Queen Herawin, Wordsworth and ILL BILL. Shout out to Pumpkinhead, A.L. Skills, Rok One and Max Glazer who also rocked earlier that day while we were all waiting for J-Treds’ late ass to show up.

And hey, if that’s the stuff you listen to, if that’s the stuff that moves you, if that’s the stuff you wanna “Beat Juggle”… be my guest. But Funk begets Funk and “Beat Juggling” is ALL about sounding Funky. So I strongly suggest you work with actual Funky music when you’re formulating a new pattern or routine. You know… somethin’ wit’ some FLAVA!

Many believe “Beat Juggling” as we know it today is stale, synthetic and flat lines after a few quick seconds. One reason for this is a lot…
