DJ Premier To Debut His Own Live Band In Japan


DJ Premier is unveiling his new live band in Osaka and Tokyo for six shows (Jan 28, 30 & 31). The shows are with Billboard Live. Premo and his band (a five piece accompaniment featuring drummer, bass player, horns, keys, trombone) will be putting there instrumental flourishes to Premier’s catalog of classics; from Gang Starr to Jay-Z, Biggie & Nas and everything in between.

“I put a live band together because I’ve always dreamed of being in one ever since I was a kid,” said Preem. “I have a funky group of players assembled to play my classics and perform new things” http://spellshelp.com

The members of DJ Premier’s live band are:
DJ Premier- (Turntables)
Brady Watt- (Bass)
Lenny “The Ox” Reece- (Drums)
Takuya Kuroda- (Horns and Keys)
Corey King- (Trombone and Keys)

The legendary DJ/Producer added, “I can play a little drums, bass and guitar but not like these guys, so I will stay on the wheels. In a short four-days of meeting and rehearsing we clicked as if we knew each other for years. This is a new adventure into expanding my brand. I will always DJ, produce and be an artist because that’s what artist’s do. We open new lanes, but never close the lanes that we already opened. Keeping the roots of your foundation in tact is what gives you longevity. Basically what I’m saying is: Let’s Ride!!”

    Brownman!!! That’s who Premo needs in this new band! The incredible trumpet player from Guru’s Jazzmatazz! THAT guy needs to be in this band! I can’t think of a more perfect trumpet player for this.
