this amazing set (for WFMU) was recorded 2 weeks ago (thanks Dawgisht) of DJ Quest's 50 minute set at his record release party for his new album Queztocoatl at Gallery 1317 (shout out 2Fresh) in North Beach - See if u can ID any of the songs in this ever changing mix - lots of golden era records

Avatar 7:02pm Billy Jam:

Avatar 7:11pm spidermank:

i have sound cranked up thru syatem so am not a good frame of reference- sounds peachy
Avatar 7:12pm Billy Jam:

OK cool - thanks ADA etc…..And note that there are absolutely no edits at all (except for one curse) made in this mix - it is exactly as SF veteran turntablist/producer DJ Quest did it from start to finnish -
Avatar 7:12pm TheRapperWithNoName:

So many great mixes. Special Ed! Love it!
  7:17pm P-90:

DJ Quest killin it. Sorry to hear about your computer woes, Billy Jam! Many of us have been there, it sucketh truly.
  7:19pm SeanG:

sounds fresh!
Avatar 7:19pm ADA:

Funny thing about that picture of Quest & Son here. I wasn't there but my wife saw this pic you posted and swears it's me in the grey sweatshirt in the mirror reflection... I do have a similar look (and grey sweatshirt), although I keep assuring her it's not me because I wasn't there that day.... or was I? It's a real puzzler.
Avatar 7:19pm Billy Jam:

thanks P-90 - and to my peeps in CA - tis 420 almost - and to my folks in Montclair NJ tom at 615pm is screening of that Syl Johnson documentary by WFMU's Hatch
  7:20pm P-90:

And little Lucas looks real confidant handling the turntable in the photo.
Avatar 7:20pm Billy Jam:

@ ADA - yeah she's right - it does look just like you
Avatar 7:22pm ADA:

some glitch in the matrix surely... either that or it's a Terminator in disguise of my guise... be wary if approached.
Avatar 7:22pm Marcel M:

It was 420 in spirit over here in JC moments before showtime as well Billy.
  7:29pm Pete in MA:

Dizam! this mix is tight as f**k!
Avatar 7:30pm Billy Jam:

@ Marcel M - good - as that is the number one rule ….******
Avatar 7:31pm Marcel M:

Indeed! And it will be that time again momentarily ;-)
  7:31pm Gabriel:

I am so thankful that I can still turn on my radio and hear stuff like this
Avatar 7:35pm Billy Jam:

me too Gabriel - hope u are doing brother!
Avatar 7:37pm Marcel M:

I have that feeling often when tuning into WFMU, Gabriel.
Avatar 7:37pm Billy Jam:

Love how Quest can flip anything - sometimes he goes off all electro (his roots) but then he'll flip it into Latin or dancehall or all breaks….>>>>>FUCKIN WOW>…..DJ Quest is fuckin amazing - in everyway - producer, DJ, but most importantly - person -- such a cool down to earth nice guy who is so humble considering what landmark figure he is in his field -
