Although DJ M2 may pay the bills with his weekday morning shift on Power 98.3, the talented turntablist has much more than Top 40 and hip-hop hits up his sleeve.
Just listen to his Nitty Gritty mixtape, where he splices smooth jazz samples with classic soul and banging hip-hop tracks, interspersing the proceedings with his kinetic and frenetic scratching. M2s serious skills have won him more than just the accolades of loyal Power 98.3 listeners; the judges at this years Red Bull Thre3Style regionals crowned him the winner of the DJ competition.
M2s varied, multi-genre approach is also one of the reasons why Groove Candy, his Thursday night party at Scottsdales Dirty Pretty, has become a destination for clubgoers seeking his signature blend of eclectic funk, neo-soul, reggae, and hip-hop.
