Joe Quixx interviewed by DJ Matthew Africa


This installment of 2 Busy Saying Yeah is something completely different– it’s an entire episode devoted to a conversation with a key figure in the Bay Area hip hop scene, Joe Quixx.

Joe Quixx began DJing as a high-schooler in Hayward in the mid-1980s. After making a name for himself, he joined up with a crew that revolutionized the sound of radio in the Bay Area and beyond. As the primary DJ for the Wake-Up Show and the 10 O’Clock bomb, Joe broke records and introduced a generation of listeners to uncut hip hop and to digging in the crates. As a producer, Joe created a number of underground classics. His style influenced a generation of listeners and he continues to inspire other DJs with his uncompromising, eclectic sound.

In the interview Joe talks about the formative influences that shaped his DJing, how the Wake Up Show came together and his classic productions for the B.U.M.S., Mysterme and others.

  7. This was a great interview. I’m from the Bay Area (Milpitas) and was listening to the Wake Up Show since sometime in ’91. I ended up meeting Joe Quixx around ’98 and became cool with him. He was working at Amoeba Records in Berkeley for a while too. Haven’t seen him in a minute though. Pretty soon I’m gonna make an 80 minute Mix CD of most of his Productions since I have almost all of them on vinyl! =)
