There’s no denying that the Beat Junkies are one of the most influential DJ crews ever assembled. With collaborations with some of the most defining acts and individuals in a variety of genres, it’s only right to celebrate the twenty-years since the crew emerged from the Los Angeles and Bay Area underground. LRG is pleased to announce For the Record -a short-form documentary that places a needed spotlight on the Beat Junkie’s influence and progression lent towards hip-hop and DJ culture. In addition, an LRG x World Famous Beat Junkies Tee and Limited New Era Snapback will be available when the Beat Junkies kick off their world tour which gets started Saturday, June 30 at the Echoplex in Los Angeles.
