Spokane Arts grants Operational Support Grants to local cultural organizations

Spokane Arts was able to fund five cultural organizations with a dispensation from the City of Spokane earmarked for the support of cultural groups. This set of grants was awarded by a separate selection panel, composed of Spokane Arts Commissioners, who made their choices independently from the SAGA process. These five organizations have received grants to support their general operations and events in 2021-22.

Artist
GrandMixer GMS

I am a DJ, turntablist, remixer, music producer, and visual artist. I first touched the turntables as a breakdancer at 11 years old, and in 1986 became the 1st DJ to mix for commercial radio in Spokane, Washington – at just 14 years old. As a turntablist, I won the 1993 Inland Northwest Battle of the DJ’s and began mixing with Tobin Costen on Spokane’s then only all rap show that same year. The follo­wing year I began mixing for music legend Nasty-Nes on Seattle’s KCMU Rap Attack until retiring from music in the mid-90’s. However, I picked up the needles in 2020 to reunite with Nasty-Nes for KFOX Nightbeat where I can be heard mixing every Sunday night from 9-11pm on RainierAvenueRadio.world. In 2020, I became the 1st Spokane DJ to mix on “Sway In The Morning” – the world’s #1 Hip-Hop radio show. My mixes consistently rank in the top 10 on Mixcloud’s Global charts – even hitting #1 on multiple charts – and after working with former Eazy E artist, Tairrie B, on her recent album, “Feminenergy,” I became her DJ/Remixer.
