The Re-Up is back again and so are 4 DJs with 4 turntables ready to bring the house down. Yall were there for the summer jump off and if you weren’t here is another shot! JDL, DMT, Contact and myself all will be rockin’ on 4 turntables, yes 4 turntables all night, while you get on the dance floor and party for 4 straight hours! We start at 10, but you should get there early just so you are ready when it starts.
TRUE Skool, Inc. will also be in the house as we celebrate them moving into their new, much larger space in the grand ave and the birthdays of Sarah Dollhausen and me…I guess. Donations will be accepted so make sure you support.

For all my peoples who leave near the State Farm Center (formally Assembly Hall) on the University of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign campus, get some tickets now. On November 6th, Kendrick Lamar is officially making this stop on his Good Kid Maad City world tour and I’m lucky enough to be opening for him.
Vic Mensa is on the line up as well so it’ll be a good time. You can get your tickets here and while you wait, enjoy my favorite Kendrick song below.
Take a listen to my October mix for Vocalo Radio’s Friday Night DJ Series. Got a lot of nice stuff in this one, a few remixes and re-edits too. And you can always catch me every 3rd Friday at Vocalo.org or on 90.7FM in Chicago.
For all those who couldn’t make it to the actual battle, here are the studio versions of my two winning sets from Vocalo’s 2013 “Quest For The Best” DJ Battle. There was a prelim round and the final so double the fun. Tons of great music in these and I would post the actual playlist, but I can’t tell all the secrets… But, I want to thank Vocalo Radio and everyone who supported me throughout.
I’m am now an official member of the Vocalo DJ collective and you can catch me every third Friday on 90.7FM Chicago/89.5FM Indiana for the Friday Night DJ Series. You can stream live at www.vocalo.org if you don’t live in the area.
This Thursday, I’ll be heading down to Chicago to battle in Vocalo Radio’s “Quest For The Best” DJ competition. If I win, I’ll be apart of the DJ collective on Vocalo, joining the likes of Big Once, Kid Cut Up, Pumpin’ Pete and more. If I win, I’ll get to do ah hour long monthly mix of open format, non top 40 music. Basically, I get to play the music I want on the radio, which is what every DJ would love to do.
If you are in the Chicago area check it out. If not, enjoy my submission below. We had a time limit of 20 minutes to showcase our technical skill, music selection and overall story telling through a mix. Vocalo Radio is an independent radio station so the music had to fit that vibe, but also be varied.
This also marks the beginning of my monthly “If Bizzon Had A Club” mix series where, as the name suggests, I mix the music I’d want to party to if I had my own spot. Stay tuned…
