DJ Bobcat - the legendary DJ, producer for example LL Cool J, 2Pac and Ice Cube - performed the 4ht of november with a special show in the 'Melkweg' on the Crossfadernight. The night before Bobcat was invited to Ducht radio (3voor12XL) for a interview and a performance. The next day (4 nov.) we met Dilated People, they stayed in the same hotel as we did. Then we had to solve the Serato-problem. We could solve it at the Allstar DJ Academy, we had a nice afternoon over there. The Crossfadernight was a good night. DJ Bobcat mixed a very nice set. The dancefloor wasn't empty: he was actually packed! Bobcat ended his performance by showing some oldschool-turntablist-skills. This was also the end of a legendary weekend with a very nice, friendly Bobcat. - www.live-and-legendary.nl


DJ Bobcat - Sometimes you wonder how someone like DJ Bobcat gets slept on when making producer lists. This is the man responsible for a lot of LL's classic joints including "Bad," "I Need Love" and "Mama Said Knock You Out" as part of the L.A. Posse collective. He's also worked on Cube's Death Certificate album as part of the Boogie Men. He was also behind the boards for Tupac, MC Ren, Eazy E, Mack 10, Usher, Bow Wow, Master P, Jagged Edge and many more. Listen to the mix on his MySpace site.

"In Ya Grill: The Faces of Hip-Hop" is a retrospective look at the work of veteran hip hop photographer Michael Benabib. With some interspersed words from Bill Adler, the book features photos taken as far back as 1986. He's taken photos of a lot of people - but, it's his work with Bad Boy that led to me getting a copy of his book.

The outside of the book just begs you to pick it up. It's an eye catching cover featuring cropped/smaller versions of photos included within - photos of Russell Simmons, MC Lyte, Diddy, Flavor Flav, Lil' Kim, Biggie, LL Cool J (with DJ Bobcat, E-Love and Cut Creator) and Kid Capri. Interestingly, the actual cover is different from the cover above - the Lil' Kim photo featured is different. The back cover features a large photo of DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince.

Bio

Bobby “Bobcat” Ervin professionally known as Bobcat or DJ Bobcat is an absolute Icon in the Entertainment Industry. Bobcat is an industrious Grammy Award winner and Multi-Platinum Producer, Songwriter, DJ, Artist and Entrepreneur with overwhelming success, recognition and prestige in the music industry doing music production, overseeing recording budgets and handling business. Bobcat is much more than a DJ, Bobcat has written & produced multi-platinum classic hits such as, I Need Love, Mama Said Knock You Out and classic albums for some of the most influential artists in music history selling over 80 Million albums worldwide!

Every since the early 80's Bobcat has been involved in Hip Hop beginning in Los Angeles with West Coast icons and pioneers Uncle Jams Army DJaying and promoting large dances and concerts for Run DMC, Whodini, Ice T, Kurtis Blow and many more, establishing the very beginning of the Hip Hop scene on the West Coast. Bobcat along with Uncle Jams Army and Greg Mack helped pioneer the world'fs very first 24-hour Hip Hop radio station, 1580 KDAY changing the entire format at radio introducing and pioneering the Saturday Night Mix Show and Traffic Jam. At the time radio was traditional R&B and was playing very little rap. Bobcat was the visionary and person who thought of the idea, concept and name Mix Masters for Greg Mack at 1580 KDAY. The records that Bobcat was mixing in his bedroom at 12 years old ended up paving the way for Hip Hop's very 1st 24-hour Hip Hop & R&B radio station, which caused a national and international domino effect changing various stations view of Hip Hop and subsequently their format.

After dominating the West Coast Hip Hop scene Bobcat flew to New York and began working with rap mogul Russell Simmons, Lyor Cohen and Def Jam Records, writing and producing LL Cool J's biggest albums and greatest hit's: I Need Love, I'm Bad, Kanday and Mama Said Knock You Out, to name a few. After working on LL's albums Bobcat designed and choreographed LL's stage shows and toured all over the world DJaying and overseeing the sound and lighting. While on stage touring with LL, Bobcat originated the infamous throwing up the "W" that stands for West Side or West Coast!

Immediately following the Def Jam tour Bobcat began working with Music Legend Clive Davis writing the very first Hip Hop song recorded on Arista records entitled "Ain't Nothing To It", by comedian Eddie Murphy's younger brother's group K9 Posse. By this time Bobcat has proven to his peers and the entire Hip Hop community that not only is he the greatest DJ on the planet but is also a musical genius and one of the most influential producers of our time! Bobcat has also DJayed all over the world at hot clubs, on sold out tours, various radio and on all major TV networks including MTV, BET, Saturday Night Live, Soul Train Awards, Def Jam Records, Mack 10, Fat Joe, MC Ren and other high profile artist and companies over the years.

Bobcat was the first producer in rap history to work with artist from both coast's literally bridging the gap between East and West while infusing both coast's sounds. After producing various artists from the East, Bobcat along with good friend and business associates DJ Pooh, Rashad Coles and Sir Jynx produced Ice Cube's entire classic multi-platinum album entitled Death Certificate that was recently voted #6 on the greatest rap albums of all time on MTV by Hip Hop fans all over the world. Bobcat is the only producer besides Dr. Dre that has worked with all of the members of NWA producing Eazy E's classic last album, Str8 Off Tha Streetz Of Compton and also MC Ren's classic EP, Kizz My Black Azz that was the first EP in history to go platinum! Also recently Blender Magazine voted I Need Love the greatest rap song ever made and CORE DJ's gave Bobcat a Legend Award along with Jermaine Dupree, Dallas Austin and DJ Tump in Atlanta.

To add to Bobcat's impressive track record, Bobcat was voted the greatest DJ in the world of Hip Hop by his peers and was given a proclamation by the Atlanta City Council for being a positive influence and role model for the community. Over Bobcat's fascinating career he has worked with everyone from Clive Davis, Russell Simmons, Lyor Cohen, Steve Rifkin, Madonna, Guy Oseary, and has written and produced classic songs for artists such as: LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Mack 10, Tupac, Nas and many others. Also artist such as: Jagged Edge, Bow Wow, Usher, and Mater P have all remade Bobcat's incredible music that has become timeless classic radio hits.

Bobcat's unique and diverse style of production and his outgoing personality and business savvy gives him the edge and ability to continue to reinvent himself. Bobcat has recently expanded his entrepreneurial endeavors by joining forces with marketing master Danny Socolof responsible for promoting Pepsi, X Box and Microsoft brands, Bobcat and Danny has recently formed a brand new partnership that connects Bands to
