The Gospel According To Quik
By Scott Tre
Footage has leaked that will surely whet your palette for DJ Quik's upcoming album The Book Of David. This behind the scenes clip shows Quik looking quite at home behind the boards at Wavaflow studio, playing select tracks from the LP for those in attendence. It starts off with a rather bold though not wholly unexpected statement from Quik himself, as well as a ringing endorsement from Kurupt (who also appears on the album). The minor snippets that we hear are infused with the kind of funky and refined grooves that Quik is known for.
While Quik may never get his proper due, it's good to see that he has stayed true to his musical vision and continues to put out new material. So many producers these days are nothing more than beat technicians. DJ Quik is a musician who makes actual music. Much appreciation to him for uploading this clip on to YouTube and giving his fans something to look forward to.
