In this week's City Paper I wrote a feature about DJ Jonny Blaze and his fusion of Baltimore club music and gospel on the new album The Transition.

Also in this week's paper, as usual, I wrote the Short List of concert listings.

The Baltimore City Paper's annual Big Music Issue is out this week, and in addition to the many articles, it features the introduction of several new genre-specific columns of music news that will be regularly running in CP from now on. I am writing two of them: Rap Sheet, which is about hip-hop, and BPM, which is about dance and club music and DJ culture.

Also, as usual, I did this week's Short List of concert listing.

Voting just closed today and Femi The DriFish was voted into the top 16 to compete in the battle. Congrats to him!

Urbanite Magazine's hip hop issue is out, and I interviewed Rye Rye and Blaqstarr for the cover story. I also wrote a brief overview of the checkered history of Baltimore rap and club music artists that have had national attention and/or major label deals in the past.
