You can't have a conversation about the old school Cleveland/Akron scene WITHOUT mentioning the name DJMC Jinx. Entering the Cleveland scene in 1989 as an MC, he was first introduced to the Underground via Red Zone Productions underground 4th street parties. In 1990, he won an MC battle in the VIP room of the legendary Metropolis in the Flats and was immediately picked up by Counter Culture Collective. He got his DJ start both from legend Scott Forbush, who furnished him his 1st vinyls, and from super promoter Mel Arnwine of CCC who had him opening after hours. Under the tutelage of Cleveland underground's best DJ's he morphed into a house music force, playing sets regularly at Club One, Smart Bar, Alter House, U4IA and others. In late 1993 he hooked up with some rave kids from Akron and became a member of the Eternal Peace Tribe Family, and later helped underground party genius Ras I Free in launching Underground Peace Society. A regular fixture at the Attik, Jinx had aspirations to branch out musically, so in 1996 he moved to Columbus Ohio and set out to re-invent himself. Jinx has played over 1000 events, has had multiple residencies in clubs, bars, parties and raves for over 30+ years, and after a hiatus, has returned to the scene wielding house, drum and bass, acid jazz and hip hop as his weapons of choice. Jinx currently hosts his own weekly internet radio show, "Underground Soul" which airs Monday nights from 8p-10p EST.
