After the success of our Glow In The Dark cover for issue 15, we knew we had to up the ante with Issue 16, so what better way to get you bumpin' than our very first DJ mixtape. After scouring through tonnes of turntablists, we hit up party starter extraordinaire DJ Zimmie. Hailing from the pitts of burgh, this tattooed wonder gets any shindig shakin' with his extensive mash of rock, metal, jazz, hip hop and of course that jam that'll make you holla "this my joint!!' We gave Zimmie full reign to make a mix and with over 80 tracks in just over 60 minutes, he delivered the goods and then some.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, DJ Zimmie was brought up on an eclectic mix of classic rock, metal, jazz and hip hop. As he matured, his tastes expanded and he explored musical instruments and turntables. After living in several major cities around the country including Philly, NYC, Portland and LA, Zimmie returned to Pittsburgh to make his mark. In a short time, DJ Zimmie had quickly built a reputation as a first class party rocker. His vast musical knowledge, eclectic song selection and creative mixes made him a staple in the nightlife scene of Pittsburgh. His skill and professionalism have made him the DJ choice of companies such as SCION, Puma and Red Bull as well as a fast-rising talent nationally. He's shared the stage with legends such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ AM, DJ Premier, Z-Trip & De La Soul in cities from NYC to LA to Vegas.
