The first record pool in Memphis in many years was launched last night, February 27, at the Sahara Cafe and Grill on Ridgeway. It’s called The Music Exchange, or TMXMemphis, and it’s being sponsored by The Mixtape Magazine. Last night’s hosts were Edward “Big Ed” Gardner and DJ Kojak, with music provided by Hot 107’s DJ J-Rock, and a lot of other DJ’s were in the house, including Memphis’ legendary DJ Care Bear, strip club DJ Herschel B, and DJ Bay. Memphis-based Select-O-Hits was also present, as well as a number of familiar and not-so-familiar Memphis artists. TMX Memphis offers artists a chance to get their music exposed to and critiqued by DJ’s, as well as a chance to network with industry movers and shakers and other artists. This event will be held six times a year in Memphis.
