Releases:[The Foundation] [Turntable] [No More Games] [Mixopolis : Crate One] [Starting From Scratch] [Reintroduction of the DJ]
Info:Since the early age of 8 years old DJ Skillspinz, hailing from Georgia, has always been close to a turntable. Skillspinz is now the official DJ of the Gotee crew Grits, since September 2003. Coming into the hip hop game DJ Skillspinz held it down at a single event called Cru-vention in 1997 as the DJ for legendary groups such as LPG & The Tunnel Rats, Sup the Chemist, and Knowdaverbs.

Attention
Skillspinz quickly gained the attention of artists such as Grits, Crossmovement and Verbs formally Knowdaverbs and soon after recording his (Verbs) e.p. "Knowdaverbs" and provided the cuts on "I Got It Made." A remake of the old school song.

Mixtapes
After making many mixtapes Skillspinz achieved a record deal with Rescue Records releasing his first official solo album "Reintroduction of the DJ" in 2000. He was the first to release a record of it's kind with "quick tornado" type heavy scratches (which he likes to call) and a barrage of mixing with hard beats.

Artists
Skillspinz served as the DJ for such artist like The Ambassador (Crossmovement Records) to Gotee Records artist Grits in 2004, which he can be heard on their 2004 release "Dichotomy A." He can also be seen in the video "Hittin" Curves." With his skills on the turntables over shadowing his beat making skills, he produces some of the tightest joints like "Shadow Dance" from Playdoughs album "Lonely Superstar" (2002) to his fully produced record "Reintroduction of the DJ" (2000), which garnered a Dove Awards consideration.

Focus
The DJ states about his focus on his life: "The Lord spoke to me and said in order for me to have longivity, I will have to abide in Him and seek His face. My gift will only take me so far but people will want meat to eat which is His word." Tired of playing games, Skillspinz devotes not only his music, but his life to preaching no other gospel as Paul says in Galatians 1.

Awards
In 2005, DJ Skillspinz was nominated for a U.G.A (urban gospel association) award for the best gospel mobile DJ. He's also shared stages with Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, and Mary Mary just to name a few.

Distribution
The new upcoming release called "The Foundation" scheduled for the DJ in 2007. His record Mixopolis : Crate One was very hard to get, because it did not have any official distribution.
These problems should be over, since DJ Skillspinz entered a distribution deal as of March 15th, 2006 through the Atlanta-based Holy Hip Hop Music label. The label announced, that it will use it's multi-year Strategic Alliance with EMI Gospel to exclusively distribute, the new DJ Skillspinz products.

Albums
The DJ is released The Foundation, through Holy Hip Hop, in 2007. This record is evolved from the album announced earlier "No More Games" (2005).
The project "Starting from Scratch" did not see the light of day because of label problems.
