Mike Galloway known more popularly to his growing fan base, by the stage name Dj Big Mike hails from Pendleton, S.C. In 2020 he steps out from behind the shadow of some of his predecessors and mentors as he clearly establishes then presents his very own signature style of sound during this debut mix. Mike has been grinding hard on the local scene Dee-Jaying in areas like Belton to Seneca, SC at spots like the Bistro. His immense DJ mixing skills and talents also has secured him frequent rotation as a premiere house jock at the Anderson County Veterans of Foreign Wars Club (V.F.W. Post 6089). DJ Big Mike is a stalwart artistic brother of the Dj Craft whom in conversation is humbly down-to-earth, it’s not surprising to me at all how rapidly his skills have developed. Good Dj’s do two things well…one is listening well and the other is practice. Judging by this diversified collage of musical genre’s introduced in this mix……. Dj BiG Mike has done his homework. Welcome aboard the podcast mixshow we salute you it’s NOW time for your name and talent to be heard worldwide!!

Mumble Free Pt.2 (Skillz & Bars)Mix is the long-awaited sequel & second installment that is dedicated to TruSkool fans of real Hip Hop worldwide. This time I take you on a rollercoaster ride with notable hip hop icons who release new dope tracks yet as usual got no mainstream love on these so-called new hip hop shows or disregarded by a lot of this new plethora of offbeat non-mixing mumble rap Dj’s. I also unleashed a couple of joints from dope up and coming new conscience artist that are presently making a lot of noise reviving the art of lyrical & poetic skills in Upstate SC. Metcalf The God and Selah Blak Sol. Of course, I delivered classic hip hop gems here & there from the golden era throughout the duration of this mix. In conclusion this almost an hour & a half long ride can definitely be enjoyed by real hip hop heads of all walks of life, from the US to the UK and over to the Far-East. We all have one thing in common, we love lyrical flow and blazing booming boom bap beats served up with a classic TruSkool Dj format. On this edition this is precisely what you’re going to get. The Real Last Forever. Hope you Enjoy. Peace Dj Tuc
It seems within less than 48hrs, looking at the download numbers for the Live audio launch of The Sista Girl Party pt.1 hosted by Wine & Design was a numerical hit. Ricos & Pero the Artist continue to entertain the paint & wine sippers as I go into a classic reggae music set for the island sisters in the house that night. Hope you enjoy this portion of the show.
Peace Dj Tuc
The Sista Girl Party was conceived by Ms. Sisirea (Joe) Simmons. It was officially launched at Wine & Design on Clemson BlVD and a commercial success out the box. ALL SEATS WERE PACKED!! The idea was to invite out the everyday working class of female Queens & Goddesses to come out, represent, relax their minds,socialize,sip some wine,paint, listen to a different array of good music and most importantly have a great time.
Lead instructor/artist Pero Ulmer and Ricos The Poet Of Truth came along for the ride while holding down the mics during this festive affair while yours truly Dj Tuc held down the 1's & 2's.
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT!!!!! ENJOY da Live Action..
This Dj super mega mix crew know as Smooth Groove Dj's from GA, is composed of 5 talented southern Dj's over flowing with diverse skill sets.Dj Smoove B,Dj Quiet Storm,Dj Mop,Dj Master Q, and Dj E-40 heads up the team. Alot of come lately Dj's seemed to think Djing NOW is all about doing gimmicky tricks on stage since the advent of high priced digital mixers & since digi vinyl was introduced in the last decade. As if Dj's down south don't put in work. What they forget is there was an art and craft before all this new technology existed. Dj E-40 reminds all, tricks are good for a contest but not for rocking parties. Now back to the basics on how we do it down south!!!
Dj T-Rock is one of the most unique Dj's in da A.N.D. (City of Anderson)

Another successful Red Velvet Poetry Café Show was hosted on 1-19-19 in the A.N.D. (Anderson, S.C.) at the All New 1421 which is under the new management of Cory (Cadillac) Hatton. There was rain on the outside, but nevertheless poetry and skills still shined extremely bright on the inside.
Red Velvet Café regulars like Blazin Anne came to wreck shop on stage as usual, along with a lot of talented newcomers to our stage like conscience performers David Metcalfe, Selah Blak Sol and Young Pharaoh not to mention the gorgeous and talented sultry songstress Ms Charity out of Simpsonville, S.C. The lovely Tanya Stewart serenaded the audience as always with her grown and sexy soulful voice to close the show this time around. Hardcore Rappers Typhoon and Killa represented for the very first time under the Velvet Café lights. Tru Skool vintage veteran battle emcee Easy E showed why he is still a force to be reckoned with even up till present. Addressing issues most are afraid to say on stage behind the microphone. The Red Velvet Café stays true to its original roots that host Kevin Norris conceived over a decade ago. If you’re looking for change, positive vibes and classic hip hop, rock, soul and funk. Then the Red Velvet Café just may be your cup of tea. Relive the moment here by taking a listen or simply checkout our flavor if you find yourself curious about the fastest growing popular show production promoting unity & true music culture originating out of Anderson…… Peace Tuc
People ask exactly what is the Red Velvet Cafe or where is it? Just who originally started this poetry movement in da A.N.D. aka Anderson S.C. What kind of talent performs there? Who is Kevin Norris & this DJ Tuc? Hopefully this will answer all the questions & set the record straight. Enjoy!!!
