◘ ◘ The Magic of DJ Quik ◘ ◘

When rap music first emerged in the mid 1970s, it connected with listeners immediately by addressing all aspects of urban life with its unique freedom of self-expression. As the music evolved into a global cultural force, at least one rap icon remains true to the music’s heritage. That man is DJ Quik. MC, Producer, DJ, Multi Instrumentalist and West Coast hip hop legend. In fact, together with Dr Dre, Quik defined the sound that will forever be identified with the West Coast.

With four gold and platinum albums and production work with a who’s who of the R&B and Hip Hop world including 2Pac, Toni Tony Tone, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre to his credit, DJ Quik stands as one of hip-hop’s most consistent artists and musicians. To his credit he has over 100 million soundscanned recordings!

Six years after his last solo studio release, Quik is back. The Compton, California native returns with his eighth solo studio album with The Book Of David. As a nod to his birth-name, David Blake, this latest release is a candid and insightful project and has been voted the second most underrated album of 2011 on Rap Radar.

Quik’s sound is instantly recognizable and has been a mainstay in R&B and Hip Hop circles for almost two decades. In 2012, he continues to mix his legendary beat crafting and witty lyricism and with this new album he has evolved as a recording artist and the mind of the man behind the music, David Blake.

Given that his skills are just as precise now as they were on his 1991 debut album “Quik is the Name”, Quik’s music remains relevant and essential. The Book Of David is yet another fine addition to the catalogue of an immensely gifted artist.

20 years into the rap game, Quik will be performing live in Australia, for the first time, in March 2012. His live shows are reflective of not only the legacy that spans his illustrious career but his future legacy which will cement him as one of the most important players in the history of hip hop.
