Hot on the heels of his groundbreaking new remix project with K’NAAN, J.Period is pleased to announce his role in the highly-anticipated new video game, DJ Hero™. With an unprecedented roster of talent including DJ AM (R.I.P.), DJ Grandmaster Flash, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Shadow, and DJ Z-Trip, DJ Hero™ celebrates the best the DJ world has to offer, and affirms J.Period’s status as one of its elite class.

With a diverse array of styles represented in DJ Hero™ - from club to old school, mash-up to trip hop, electro to house - J.Period joins the cast of A-List turntablists as the group’s most celebrated Mixtape DJ. Known for powerhouse projects with Mary J. Blige, The Roots, Kanye West and Lauryn Hill, J.Period continues to hold the mantle as one of the world’s Top Mixtape DJ/Producers.

Adding to his growing track record (and fanbase: his collaboration with Q-Tip has received over 600,000 downloads/streams since February), J.Period’s latest project, “The Messengers,” has also had a powerful impact, earning nearly 75,000 downloads/streams since its release only weeks ago, on September 1. Remixing the music of legendary artist/activists Fela Kuti, Bob Marley and Bob Dylan with rising hip hop star, K’NAAN, J.Period’s latest Mixtape is already being called one of the year’s best by top hip hop journalists.

With DJ Hero™, J.Period takes part in an epic collaboration featuring the biggest talent and hottest mixes ever amassed on a 93-mix soundtrack, producing 2 exclusive remixes. For his first, J.Period holds down New York’s legacy as the birthplace of hip hop, remixing 2 of its greatest hip hop anthems: Gang Starr "Just to Get a Rep" vs. Mobb Deep "Shook Ones, Part 2." For his second mix, J.Period turns to more traditional turntablism, cutting and scratching Billy Squier’s classic break “Big Beat” alongside a previously unreleased gem from Q-Tip called "Good Thang." The result is turntable artistry at its finest.

Expanding upon the revolutionary gameplay mechanics developed and refined in Guitar Hero®, DJ Hero™delivers an all-new interactive music experience that allows players to start the party and not only experience, but to hear music in an all-new way.
