Louisiana Record Breakers: Dj Ro, VirDIKo, and Dj Poppa

In the 21st century where technology has made a serious impact on record promotion, The Heat Magazine highlights some of Louisiana’s record breakers.  New Orleans can be classified as a “music renaissance” city with more than 20 years of urban music being showcased in books, movies, and museum exhibits.  Often the men or women behind the music are not easily identified.  As a simplified road map for novice artists and labels, The Heat Magazine suggests you develop a relationship with the following stakeholders.

Ro Watts (D.J. Ro) is WQUE’s mixologist with more than 20 years of experience.  Hear him on on the 5:00 pm mix Monday thru Friday, and the weekend mix show (10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.)  Watts is the first African American disc jockey to mix on WQUE and basically changed the station’s format from pop to urban.

Big Daddie the Dj is the director of operations with The Definition DJ’s and has the service, VirDiKO(Virtual Distribution KOmpany) One of the most sought after event DJ’s in the game. A native of New Orleans that breaks records in the Dallas area and basically brings thousands of disc jockeys together under VirDIKO.(More Information coming soon on Big Daddie from The Heat)

DJ Poppa is the disc jockey that you can hear at Club Caesars and House of Blues on Sundays.  Poppa also spins on WQUE on Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.  Social Shakedown aka Tweet a Beat, a show largely catered to bounce mixes.  On any given night, you can catch DJ Poppa at your club of choice putting in work.  His work ethic is showing up all over New Orleans.

Although several businesses can assist artists and labels in the growth and development of artists, The Heat Magazine wanted to offer you some concrete examples.  The Heat Magazine wishes everyone a productive 2012 and beautiful holiday season.  Conclusively, the fans are extremely important in promoting the music.  The stakeholders we mentioned can help you develop a bond with Louisiana lovers of music.

He is also a stakeholder in the newly found New Orleans Union For Entertainment which is a new resource provider for New Orleans artists and businesses as well as a collective.
