I’m a nerd.  I love hip-hop and I’m a grown ass man, but I’m a nerd.  I love researching and reading the stories behind things, watching documentaries, etc.  For this reason, Brian Coleman is the shit.  Brian has been a music journalist for a long time but I first heard about him from his book Check The Technique.  Through his books Brian has essentially written the liner notes which previously didn’t exist for 60+ hip-hop albums.  If you’re a hip-hop fan, some of these albums are undoubtedly your favorites.

 

Brian was in town to do a signing for Check The Technique Volume 2 and was gracious enough to swing by my house for an interview.  Listen to his story and cop his publications.  Shouts to DJ Platurn for the link.

 

…and please follow Brian on Twitter.

If you’re in the Carolinas, I’ll be giving a talk at the University of North Carolina on Tuesday, April 7th.  I’ll be discussing the documentary, the importance of DJing in popular culture, a wide variety of other DJ-related topics and there will be a Q&A.  (I’m also hoping for a BBQ&A on my trip. Ha.)  The discussion will be held at 2pm in Hill Hall.  Please forward this to any DJs you know in the area and reach out to me with any questions.  Major shout out to Mark Katz and DJ A-Minor for hooking this up.

 

To schedule a discussion at your school, please email through the contact page.

Later that evening I’ll also be rocking alongside A-Minor on Chapel Hill.

My man DJ Klyph is definitely one of the good guys.  He’s always super positive and all about connecting people in the Portland music scene with each other and the rest of the world.  I’ve been on his radio show at KZME twice and recently he interviewed me for his podcast, Klyph Notes.  Peep game…

Last week my SoundCloud page reached 200,000 plays!  I will always find it inspiring to know that people around the world listen to my mixtapes and remixes.  I post everything for free because I want to reach as many people as possible and I can’t thank everyone enough for supporting what I do.  Cheers!
