oriJanus SeratoCast Mix
In our month packed full of SeratoCast mixes, next up for SeratoCast mix number 62 is oriJanus of Soulection and emcee on WordLyfe.
oriJanus brings the vibes on this one with a stack of his own tracks, remixes and token Soulection vibes.
We also asked him a couple of questions to find out what he's on at the moment. Read below.
Matt Perry: Tell us where you are at right now and why are you there?
oriJanus: I'm at the Serato Studio 3 in Little Tokyo recording a Seratocast on my birthday. :)
MP: Top 5 records doing it for you right now?
OJ: 1. Thundercat - Friend Zone, my friend Mono/Poly produced it and he's from Bakersfield as I am.
2. This unreleased Zikomo remix that's going to be put out soon. Sssssh, lol.
3. Terrace Martin - Valdez off Crenshaw, I STILL play this song religiously.
4. SiR - W$ Boi, great song that tells a more common story. SiR is such a cool dude.
5. Temu - Boogaloo Blues, that bassline....ungh!
MP:First DJ Setup, what was it?
OJ: First setup I had was a pair of Yamaha Ion turntables my grandma bought me from a JC Penny's catalog for Christmas when I was about 10 years old. They were really fragile and the stylus picked up any little touching of the tables but it got me through, lol.
MP: Favourite mixtape you've made. (Doesn't have to be released, eg for a friend or lover)
OJ: I recorded a mix of my favorite hip-hop tracks as a kid (Black Moon, Smif-N-Wessun, Wu, Jamal, Redman etc.) that I've been playing out. Might put it out someday, lol.
MP: Favourite City in the world and why?
OJ: Miami! I've been there twice in the past few months and I love it. I'm puerto rican so I was welcomed with open arms. I loved the latin conga bands on the corner and the women!
MP: What are you working on currently?
OJ: Currently recording and working on my self-produced, debut rap project entitled "7000 Auburn - EP". Been taking me quite some time but I'm getting it out this year. Be on the lookout for that!
