Those familiar with the DJs on the Milwaukee Hip-Hop scene probably recognize the names Jank One and DJ Venus.
Jank One has been DJing on and off in Milwaukee for over a decade but the newer class of artists and fans might know him better as that short angry black guy walking around with a camera taking pictures of those on the scene.
DJ Venus has also been around on the 1’s and 2’s for a while, most recently really holding it down pretty hardcore on Center St. Some might highlight that she’s one of the few females out there rocking the wheels of steel in Milwaukee but I’d rather highlight that I’ve never been bored by the music when being in a place that she’s spinning.
They recently have teamed up to form a DJ duo known as Him & Her and they have been actively doing gigs around Milwaukee for the past several months. They are even expanding their territory with a gig coming up in Chicago.
A couple of weeks ago they began doing podcasts. The podcasts make it feel like you are almost in a living room with them, just casually chatting over drinks and smokes (if you fancy a cig now and again).
If you have an hour to enjoy interesting conversation, I suggest you turn them on. I like to listen while catching up on the news in the morning. Warning – It will take you a lot longer to read the news when you listen to them.
