Since he first grabbed the spotlight with his hit "Born and Raised in Compton," DJ Quik has become legendary, producing tight and funky tracks both for himself and other artists. While he never reached the mega-star status enjoyed by fellow G-funkster Dr. Dre, Quik was also very instrumental in pioneering the Parliament/Funkadelic inspired movement. His tracks have all the key ingredients; full-bodied bass grooves, wheezing high-end synths, and beats custom-made for the ride. Quik has released five albums between '91 and 2000, in addition to lending his skills to a variety of artists from both coasts. His dance inducing "Pitch In On A Party" single rocked the airwaves during the summer of 2000, and 2002 saw him return with Under The Influence. A hits compilation entitled Best of DJ Quik was released that same year, Platinum & Gold Collection followed in 2004.
