DJ T-ROCK & SQUASHY NICE "Getting Through"

Written by on January 14, 2013

American producer duo DJ T-Rock and Squashy Nice’s’ five year journey through dim lit basements, scratchy rare grooves and the beats that time forgot is over. “We wanted the new album to have a retro feel, using vintage technology to keeping the production minimal. For the most-part we sample from vinyl, so where we found vinyl scratches, we kept them..”

The new album “Getting Through” restates T Rock and Squashy’s reputation as masters of their craft ‘Spoken-word collisions, sample-based backing tracks and beat juggle-style production interlaced with a jazz, funk and soul message’.

“Getting Through” tells the story of two producers working on opposite sides of the USA picking through retro beats,and fusing them to build choppy instrumentals, adding their own T- Rock and Squashy vibe, while delivering timeless music pieces that will resonate with fans and newcomers alike.

With plenty of what we know and love from Rock and Squash– “Getting Through” features full length tracks mixed with shorter interludes. It’s a work chopped with smaller “tastes” making you crave another line. Rock and Squash keep on dealing… “In this day and age of people making playlists of random songs – we encourage people to listen to ‘GettingThrough’ as a ‘whole album’ from start to finish’. That’s the way we intended it to be heard.”

DJ T-Rock and Squashy Nice’s new album “Getting Through” tells an American story that is best enjoyed in a club, in a bar, over an old 8 track in the car, on a beat box, hi fi, home theatre or sitting on the porch watching trucks go buy on the interstate. “It runs like a book.. Intro, poppy, upbeat, chorus in the middle, and a zen more chill vibe towards the end. – “Getting Through’ shows we’ve worked on bringing that old school vibe back.
