Public Enemy and Prophets of Rage Turntablist



Featuring Chuck D and Kool Keith


Los Angeles, Calif. (October 5, 2018) --- DJ Lord, turntablist for both Public Enemy and Prophets of Rage, drops a surprise set of tracks today with “AFTERBURN” featuring Chuck D and Kool Keith. Recorded, mixed and mastered during worldwide tours with both groups, the album leads with the single, “Eagle Force,” a collaboration between Lord, his longtime hero Kool Keith and producer Threepeeoh. The accompanying video is a nod to Keith’s fascination with space, adding an unexpected layer to his raw lyrics and Lord’s sound manipulation. “AFTERBURN” also includes “Terrorwrist” (produced by Mike Redman), which originally appeared on PE’s “Nothing Is Quick In the Desert,” as well as multiple instrumentals and remixes by Threepeeoh and C-Doc.


“I personally like to hear the beat rock,” Lord says, explaining why he wanted different versions of each track on the album. “If it’s a dope beat…let it breathe…scratch out to it…rock out.” “I love it when someone else remixes one of my tracks. It gives you another view, like ‘why didn’t I think of flipping the beat to that?’” “DJ Lord is a turntable musician,” adds Chuck D. “To work with him in not one, but two, groundbreaking groups, is a gift I could never repay.”

Lord has spent nearly 20 years behind the decks for Public Enemy and the past two years recording and touring stadiums as a member of The Prophets of Rage. He has been a DMC World DJ Championships finalist twice and has embarked on over 100 worldwide tours.


“AFTERBURN” is available from the SPITSLAM Record Label Group at iTunes and Bandcamp.
