DJ Heat launched DCMumboSauce.com on November 21, 2007, and at the time there were few media outlets of it’s kind. She said, ”I started the site because I would visit hip-hop blogs such as NahRight.com, 2DopeBoyz.com, etc. and noticed that there was nothing like that for the area. The industry stresses that people need to increase their Internet presence, but how does one do that when there is no breeding ground to start that presence?” said Heat. “I created DCMumboSauce.com as that breeding ground for up and coming artists in the DC/MD/VA area. My goal was to expose the area to other artists besides just the Wale’s and Tabi Bonney’s who were the most visual at the time. And at the same time, help artists get exposure as well.”
The Hi-Five Honors will be a highlight of the evening, recognizing the most-successful artists in DCMumboSauce.com history as well as honoring important supporters. Recipients includeThe Washington City Paper Arts Desk, Hip-Hop Artists Lyriciss and Marky, Andre Banksof ABB Video and Writer/Account Executive Marcus K. Dowling.
A pioneer media platform of sorts, DCMumboSauce.com has been highly regarded by fellow media outlets, including the Washington City Paper, and referenced by The Washington Postand Complex Magazine, as well as voted the best and most-supportive site by members of a broad and growing entertainment scene at the DMV Music Awards. Please celebrate this exciting occasion on November 18th.
