DJ Of The Month: Revolution

DJ Revolution is not your average DJ. In our opinion, one the most well rounded musicians, he's done it all. From the world famous Wake Up Show LA, to his innovate mixtape series (if you havent heard The Wake Up shows Vol. 1-6, your sleeping), to producing for a handful of famous rappers to just recently signing with Duck Down records-not to mention he's deadly on the cut too.

Producer Of The Month: Timbaland

Timbaland's new album Shock Value 2 out now. Get it. In the mean time, enjoy this classic cut Ginuwine "pony" produced by Timbaland DOWNLOAD HERE
