Hello everyone! Hope many of you had a wonderful summer. Plus to all the students, I hope you had a great start for this school year. Let’s kick off September on the right foot, shall we?
This Saturday, catch yours truly spinning the hottest music with two of Boston’s hottest DJs in the LGBTQ scene: Ms. Jackie the Mixtress and Ms. Lady J (aka JamilaAfrika). I make my return to the Milky Way (284 Amory Street, Jamaica Plain, MA) joining forces with these lovely, wonderful, and talented ladies on the 1s and 2s. Hosted by the one and only Jha D, you know this party is gonna be turnt up!
Hey everyone! In case you guys haven’t noticed, I am finally back to spin it up for the summer. Please pardon me for not updating my site for the past month or two. Things have been very difficult for me during those times. Due to a sudden family emergency, I decided to take a hiatus from mid-April to mid-May in order to focus on family related events. I am sure you all may remember the saying, “Family comes first.”
Putting family things aside, I really want to start off by giving a big shoutout to my fellow crew: The Audio Chemists. On Saturday, June 8, DMC Champion and X-Ecutioner Rob Swift will be coming to the Boston area to teach a master DJ class at the Paris Street Gallery (101 Paris Street, Everett, MA) from 1-3pm. Rob Swift will be covering major fundamentals of DJing and Turntablism, as well as give a story of his journey as both a DJ/Turntablist and Producer. A live set by Rob will be performed, followed by a meet and greet for attendees to ask him any questions. Additional information and signups can be found here at the Audio Chemists website. Do not miss out on this amazing event.
For all my LGBTQ folks in the Boston area, we only have less than a week until Pride 2013. Saturday night, I will be spinning up the hottest music for the Boston Pride 2013 Youth Dance. On top of that, this Youth Dance is going to become much bigger than the Valentine’s Day Youth Dance back in February. The Boston Pride 2013 Youth Dance will be located at Boston City Hall (1 City Hall Square, Boston, MA). Presale tickets are only $10 and will be $15 at the door. Additional information about the Youth Dance and Facebook invite can all be found here. For all those under 21 who want to celebrate Boston Pride 2013, you know that this is the place to be.
On Monday, March 11, I will be featured on YARR (You Ain’t Ready Radio) in their “Monday Mixup” show. Founded and hosted by Naomi “Beeza” O’Bannon, a former Columbia Records street team member, she made her mark promoting for many heavyweight hip hop artists such as 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., and Snoop Dogg. Beeza has also been a prominent figure in Boston’s urban music scene since the 90s, as a DJ for WRBB 104.9 and a VJ/Promoter for BNN (Boston Neighborhood Newtork) Television.
This Boston based internet radio show broadcasts Monday and Wednesday starting at 7PM EST. Primarily an urban radio stream, their mission is to help promote and support local and global independent artists for listeners to tune in to. It is an EOR (Equal Opportunity Radio), where everybody has a voice to share in many different ways. Music has no limits. You Ain’t Ready Radio has reached 40k listeners worldwide and music becomes more and more diverse week after week. The “Monday Mixup” features guest DJs from all over and respective sets are broadcasted to their listeners. A new DJ is featured each and every Monday. Listeners can also gather additional information about guest DJs in the YARR official website.
