Welcome to the Jazzadelica website: a tour through the musical landscape of
Bay Area DJ Rocky Rococo. Jazzadelica champions the influence
of jazz on dance music culture. From well-established genres like house, techno, and
drum'n'bass, to the burgeoning "leftfield" genres of nu jazz, broken beat, and downtempo,

Jazzadelica touches upon all of these, and mixes them up with some hip hop, funk,
soul, disco, and worldbeat sounds from the African diaspora. It's all good!|
