Producer & DJ based out of St.Louis, MO, also co founder of Delmar Records.
Welcome to our new weekly segment dedicated to the DJ. Our first feature mix is by Spontaneous Mixx from St. Louis, MO. Learn more about him below and listen this great mix below.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Spontaneous Mixx has always been a music enthusiast. Even as an adolescent, when most his age were just listening to music, Spontaneous was keen on observing production styles and musical influences. He became interested in the art of mixing songs while still in high school and started learning to spin in 2000 when a close friend bought a set of turntables. In the early 2000s, Spontaneous began subcontracting work for a local DJ company, and taking random gigs with other DJ friends until the mid 2000s when he started to venture out on his own.
At the beginning of his mix-show career, Spontaneous was a hip-hop DJ, but has since evolved to appeal to a larger audience. He now spins the hottest top40 hits, mixed with electronic and pop music. He is, as his namesake suggests, a very spontaneous DJ, in that he does not perform pre-practiced, pre-arranged mix sets, and no one night sounds like the other.

By DJ Epic

Shmurda was born in Florida to a Jamaican Father and Trinidadian Mother. He relocated to Brooklyn New York. This is not Bobby’s first run in with the law. he has spent 14 months in Juvenile Detention and has most recently been charged with criminal possession of a weapon back in June. Bobby became a hit in his rough neighborhood of East Flatbush, NY with his hit single ‘Hot Boy’ along with many other underground songs He has with his GS9 rap crew.

Frigo RevolutionWear is an underwear brand that 50 Cent has been supporting for a while now; 50 hosted their launch party earlier this year. Fellow New York celebrities Derek Jeter and Carmelo Anthony reportedly have stakes in Frigo as part owners. The brand announced a partnership with 50, Derek Jeter, Carmelo Anthony, and Timbaland on its Facebook page a few days ago. Frigo has not confirmed the monetary amount of the deal with 50, or what the deal exactly entails as of yet.
In an interview with Seth Meyers last night (Dec. 15), 50 Cent says that since women “spend so much on lingerie, [Frigo underwear] is the right project for men.” 50 Cent says that the underwear was designed before his involvement, and that they haven’t had to do any promotions for the underwear until now.
Frigo, which sells underwear for $100 a pair, seeks to “revolutionize the underwear industry by offering men optimal comfort, moisture control and support, with style and practicality in mind,” according to its website.
