What up St. Lou, it's ya boy Philly Dondada bringing you the latest happenings about Mixxtape Mondays at Club Es·ca·láde. It was another successful & energetic nite of performances as hungry artists entertained the crowd to see if they have what it takes to blow up out of the LOU. I am not going to lie, I really feel that one or two of the rap acts really have a shot of making it to the BIG TYME! The event was poppin all the way up to 1am and when the acts were all finished the DJ played some tunes and the crowd filled the stage and dancefloor partying it up dancing and having a good time.
The host, Suave Tré, kept the event rolling smoothly with witty introductions and positive feedback to all participants. Suave also kept the audience involved with his impromtu speeches about how it is very important for us St. Louisians to network amongst each other to achieve moderate success. Mixxtape Mondays is a non-biased but very competive atmosphere to be in. You can come dressed up or dressed down and nobody will hate on you because the main focus is all about the talent. Next Level Music Group's CEO, Marlon Payne a.k.a. "P.L.", has something really special going on @ Club Es·ca·láde and I am glad to be a part of it. Also, I wanna give a "big-up" to the DJ who was mixing it up in between acts and mixed it up at the end.
I also wanna give a "big-up" to Mack Shawn who was representing socialpitt.com and Mack Dinero Music Group. Mack Shawn was shooting a commercial for the event and he recorded some performances as well. There were a few standouts that rocked the house and they were The AMP SQUAD, T-DUB and P.K. Da Don Lady. In my opinion, these 3 acts have a shot at making billboard. Now, I'm not saying that any of the other performers don't have a shot at making it big because they do. I am just stating that the artists I named stood out from the rest and had great energy to get noticed by an A&R rep. Let's go STL......let's continue to support each other and work harder at supporting each other by collaborating with each other for songs, beats, video production, marketing, etc.

Marketing developer, Natasha Harris, for Sho Meii Marketing was in the house documenting the event as well. She met with a few artists and exchanged information with them to help market and promote them professionally. I wanna give a shout-out to the security team for providing us with a safe environment. And oh, I can't forget about the lovely Miss Keisha who was working the door and greeted everyone with a warm smile.
Well y'all, I can't wait to see who is gonna rip it next week! Hope to see you there. Peace.
