No one knows Detroit music more than K-Fresh

When it comes to historical, deep knowledge and experience in the Detroit scene...there’s no one close to K-Fresh. From running the first Dilla website, to bring the first Detroit DJ to discover and spread the word about Danny Brown to his awesome work with Huffington Post and Real Detroit Weekly, K-Fresh is the definitive source for Detroit music coverage. Hearing him expand beyond hip hop to other classic Michigan music is a welcome adventure and the first episodes of this podcast are a treat.

Don’t sleep on this show!

The city needed this...

I dig the podcast. Nostalgic and takes me back to the days of being eager to have my music posted on the Renaissance Soul website. Looking forward to seeing this platform get its proper due. Keep it going Fresh.
