DJ Spinna Set To Drop New Project “The West End New York City Classics”

Spinna’s brand new mix CD themed “The West End New York City Classics mix” is Spinna in rare form, venturing into the classic sounds of the early disco days, house and 70’s soul that is simply themed, “West End.” DJ Spinna is something of an anomaly in music. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dancemusic) with no restraints.

As an emcee in New York City , if you didn’t have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just have’nt accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene. At the height of indie-kingpin Rawkus Records heyday, Spinna was in demand, also churning out timeless classics of the era from the likes of J-Live, Mr. Complex and The Polyrhythm Addicts. The mixtape hits the streets and online on 25th March, 2008 through Blaze Imprints.
