DJ Concept

DJ Concept is a DJ & producer from Long Island, New York. He is the co-founder of The Bash Brothers DJ Crew along with DJ Mickey Knox. Concept is well known for his creative use of obscure samples in his mixtapes. He gained a loyal fanbase through his nationwide hip hop show, The Mix Chronicles, on Sirius Satellite Radio. He has been DJing for 15+ years and brings much hip hop knowledge to the table. As a true crate digger and vinyl fanatic he has learned about so many different styles of music. You might catch him listening to hip hop one minute, jazz the next & metal right after. Good music is good music.Growing up in the golden era, he knew that taking DJing and music to a higher level was what he wanted to accomplish.Between 2001 & 2007, Concept linked up with producer/mc Undefined to for the group Crisis Center. They put out 2 records: Volume 1 & Version 2.0 & won a best rap duo award at The Underground Music Awards in NYC. As DJ for the group, Concept was extra focused on DJing and gained himself a spot as a mixshow DJ on Sirius Satellite Radio. Along with DJ Mickey Knox, they were on the air for over 5 years until Sirius & XM merged, and their show was lost in the shuffle.

Still creating tons of mixtapes, Concept then decided to take his production game to the next level. Instead of jumping right in, he decided to work on his craft first.  The first album he released was The BYOB LP with DJ Mickey Knox. The album featured guest appearances from Chaundon, Little Vic, Illa Ghee, Kaleber, Typ Ill, Big Noyd, Dolo and The Day Laborers. Production duties were handled by Sickness, DJ Supa Dave, DJ Skizz, Little Vic, DJ JS-1 & DJ Concept himself.

Thirsty for more, he decided to create a conceptual album, Heavy Smoke, based around one of America’s favorite pastimes. The album features Famoso, Koncept, Rap P, The Day Laborers, Chaundon, Joe Scudda, AC, Nutso, L.I.F.E. Long, Gab Gotcha, The Kid Daytona, Nature, T.Shirt & JR Mint. The project officially launched in Amsterdam in May of 2011. Limited edition CDs were available only in Amsterdam at the time of release. His next release was a themed beat tape based around the score music of the popular television show Dexter.Concept’s M99 is a dark journey through the mind of a serial killer. Then he dropped Flight Patterns. A beat tape completely made on one flight from NY to LA. Next came the Deluxe Version of Heavy Smoke featuring a lot more joints. Continuing with the conceptual projects, next he made a beat tape called Sonidos Para Tu Alma. It was made in a hotel room in Spain with all spanish influenced samples.

Currently Concept is working on a number of collaborative albums, new beat tapes, random joints & mixtapes.
