We can’t wait for The Solution’s 6th annual celebration of the life and music of James Yancey aka J Dilla on Wednesday, 2/22.  We’ve teamed up with the infamous Red Bull Music Academy and Beta Nightclub (1909 Blake St) to bring out some amazing artists and we wanna make sure you’re familiar.  With that said, let me introduce you to New York production/DJ legend DJ Spinna.

New York’s DJ Spinna is legendary producer/DJ who’s worked with everyone from Eminem to Mos Def to J-Live to his group The Jigmastas, was tapped to remix songs by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige, George Michael, De La Soul, Das EFX & MC Eiht before making himself into a force to be reckoned with on the house music scene (his Shawn Escoffery’s “Days Like This” remix is a house classic).
