Twitch DJs

I would assume everyone is up on this but if not get on Twitch and check out the music section. Been a great getaway during covid. Lots of great DJs doing regular weekly sets like Louie Vega, Questlove, Craze, Shortcut, Maseo (always high AF!) and so many more. Some great Latin and EDM dj's and a good way to check out DJs you haven't heard of or musical styles you don't know much about/want to see what's new.

and Timbalands beat school where he critiques beats sent in by viewers is comedy

Obviously tons of bedroom dorks just turning the music down every 3 sec (I HATE THAT DJ STYLE!) to beg chat for money but you can weed them out lol. Also a lot of people playing live music either covers or originals. The few of those I've checked have been pretty bad.



  • I have only dipped a toe into twitch, really, but for non-shitty live musicians I like charles jones:
    He has what they call a "golden voice". I'd listen to charles sing songs I hate, and enjoy it.

    I'm not sure I'd browse twitch for live musicians so much as take notice if a musician I already like from real music (like Charles) happens to jump on twitch.

    Blindboy from the Rubberbandits (remember "Horse Outside"? the Irish comedy duo?) does a frankly insane thing where he runs around in Red Dead Redemption, not really playing the game as it's meant to be played, but for inspiration to live-compose music tracks. He appears to have been doing this multiple hours a week for like a year(!).

    Aside from that I can't add to your list, other than a cosine on skratch bastid, whose enthusiasm is infectious.

    I just been watching Jazzy Jeff on Youtube. Wed lunch time and Friday house party has been keeping me sane and dancing around the lounge room.
    On a side note a bunch of EDM djs pop up on my feed randomly. Watching them play is so boring. One mix every 6-8 mins and then they dancing around the decks and twiddling knobs.

    These have been keeping me sane. Also, I like that I can give some cash/bits to them.

    DJ Mel does the Living Room Dance Party on Saturday, and also Moody Monday where he plays 80's goth and other stuff.

    I just randomly caught Carl Craig doing a set yesterday and it was a bright spot in my day.

    dudes/dudettes - thank for the links yo, i checked out Maseo's Twitch the day this was posted (18 days ago) and heard the fucking sickest most dopest version of "Childrens Story" i have ever heard, it was obviously made using the multitracks, muting and solo'ing only certain segments of the track  - as the beat, lyrics and everything else were all the same as the OG track, i have been trying to find it since that time but i am sure its only a mix that "he" has, i hope i catch it again on some random listen. i peeped Jeff's Twitch as well and it was just filled with sick shit. first night i caught Jeff he was on some "this is not a DMX tribute, the guy isnt dead" and only few days later "guys this is our DMX tribute set, we are remembering DMX"

    i didnt know what Twitch was all about, I just started watching Twitch a year ago, hilariously one night i found someone streaming "MXC" (Lets go! Guy LeDouche) and started watching it every few nights, a few months later, i found people playing and streaming video games and watched for a few hours. i totally forgot about it until this sucks that you cant watch Paul's (bastid's) stream unless you "like/love/join" like everything else now-a-days (do dj's expect you to follow them on every social media platform these days just to see their content?)

    ** pleez - if anyone comes across a "dj koco" stream POAST! that! shit! up!, i have been watching dudes videos like a crackhead recently and that dude is an untouchable beast on the 1200's

  • For much more serious purposes, I found WOKE on twitch was a really useful and good way to watch shit going down on the streets last summer - it was a big mosaic of loads of protest livestreams all put together in one, switching audio to whichever had the most going on.
