I know that I normally do not post up on Thursdays, but today is a special occasion. It’s been two weeks in a row that I got some shine here in the blogosphere from some good people. Eric over at Dirt Castle was kind enough to put me up with the big boys and their mixes last week, and Evan Mix of Listen In did a feature on FMF yesterday. It definitely excites me that this blog is getting out there to people that are as passionate about this music as I am. Big Ups to all of you, and more great things to come here in the future.
Which leads me to the following announcement: The Flea Market Funk Guest DJ Series is about to kick off at the end of this month. I told you I wanted to do something special for the first year anniversary, so I decided to combine that with my rapid approach to 200,000 hits (which is unbelievable, it seems that I was just at 100,000). I’ve sought out a bunch of people who have been contributing to this Funk and Soul game for a long time, as well as some of my peers, who definitely have some great music to share. This list is far from complete, but as of FMF time today, I had commitments from the following DJ’s:
-Cosmo Baker (The Rub)
-DJ Mr. Supreme (Soul Gorilla)
-Larry Grogan (Funky 16 Corners)
-Jason Perlmutter (Carolina Funk)
-DJ Bluewater (Bluewater Music)
-COOP (the Artist)
-Aaron Soma (Milwaukee, WI )
-DJ Prime (Prime Cuts Ltd.)
I’m pretty excited to start this off, and even more excited to bring some other DJs into the mix. I will keep you posted on the progress of the project and when exactly we’re gonna kick it off. Thanks for all the support and Keep Diggin’!
