So it looks as though I won the East Bay Express’ “Readers Poll” for ‘BEST DJ’ & ‘BEST MASH-UP DJ’ (don’t laugh)…
It’s an honor to rep the East Bay and Oakland and I appreciate all of you who voted for me. Keep supporting the funk and i’ll keep givin’ it back! Lots more to come so stay tuned…

Pacific Standard Time, Platurn Productions & Sony Classics present the official Bay Area Screening Kickoff Party for “Beats, Rhymes & Life” — the new documentary film about A Tribe Called Quest.
Join the PST Movement for a night of great music, amazing visuals, and probably more than a handful of Native Tongues classics. Filmmaker Michael Rapaport will be in the house, along with some VERY SPECIAL GUESTS.
DJ Platurn of the Oakland Faders makes his return to PST and not a moment too soon, as his A Tribe Called Quest mixtape is highly regarded among hip-hop heads worldwide. PST resident DJ Sake One (Local 1200) joins in the fun, along with our Conceirge Crew of Fran Boogie & Terril Jamon Douglas.
RSVP and arrive early for special gifts from Sony Classics, including “Beats, Rhymes & Life,” movie memorabilia, mixtapes and more. Stolichnaya Vodka provides $4 Stoli cocktails from 9-11pm!!
“BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE” NORTHERN CALIFORNIA DEBUT SCREENINGS ARE ON JULY 15, 2011 IN SF, BERKELEY, MOUNTAIN VIEW, PLEASANT HILL, SAN JOSÉ and SAUSALITO.

And to those of you who have been asking about my affiliation with this film, it’s quite simple. Rapaport heard this mix a few years ago…
Here’s what he has to say about it…
That’s all! Enjoy.
Big news coming plus the Bay premier so stay tuned!
