Meet Wonway...

I've known Wonway since the late 90s, back when we hung with the same circle of people and were both emcees. What's funny is I hadn't found out until within the last 5 months that he was a SUPER DOPE DJ too. We invited him to spin at "the clearing" (photo above - thanks miles)... And I caught his set at "The People". Wow. I'm proud of him and everything he's up to.

When he's not emceeing with his group Secluded Journalists, his band The Park, or lending his acting talents to places such as Intersection for the Arts or La Peña Cultural Center, Wonway is providing the bay area and beyond with his own distinguishable sound behind the turntables. In his short time back to deejaying on a regular basis, he has already played with Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Eleven, Sake One, the Oakland Faders, & DJ Boogie Blind of the X-ecutioners to name a few. Wonway's selection goes far past the expected HipHop, and regularly dips into Funk, Soul, Salsa, Afro-beat, Jazz, Reggae & more. He holds residencies at "Makossa" with fellow Latin Soul Brother DJ Joe Quixx Tuesdays @ Easy Lounge in Oakland, and the bi-monthly parties "Musiquarium" 1st & 3rd Sundays at Oakland's Water Lounge and "Devil's Pie" 2nd & 4th Thursdays @ Namu Bar in San Francisco.
