This week's entry for Mixtape Mondays is called "Snitch-The Soundtrack" from my homegirl DJ 88. "Snitch" is a weekly party at Ghostbar inside the Palms Casino & Resort in Las Vegas where 88 is the resident DJ. In just a year, "Snitch" has become one of the most successful weekly parties in town. Just like the party, this mixtape consist of an assorted mix of music which 88 calls "ElectroClassicHipHopFutureDiscoDopeness". This mixtape has everything for the latest club bangers (Martin Solveig's "Hello") all the way to classic jams from way back in the days (Freeze's "I.O.U."). Snitch-The Soundtrack is definitely a must have to add to your music collection.

I've had the pleasure of knowing 88 for a minute. Originally from Los Angeles, but now in Las Vegas, 88 has been DJing for nearly 8 years but her grind shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. She's built quite a resume in a short period of time, holding down residencies in some of Vegas' hottest venues to opening for artists such as The Roots, De La Soul & Snoop Dogg (just to name a few). Not only is 88 a great DJ but she is also known for her philanthropy work. She does a bi-annually event called "Sunday In The Valley" (which Knyew was honored to be part of a while back) that raises awareness for animal-rescue and adoption. So far the event has raised over $40,000 for various animal rescue organizations. Good looks for the mixtape 88 (I'm still waiting for soul food sunday's at the crib) & a big shout out to the Snitch crew DJ Mike Attack & Dave Fogg. Enjoy Knyewtrons...Neva.
