Taught by one of the Hip-Hop industries well-known producers and an international scratch champion, DJ Swift, you can often find the two collaborating on new tracks. DJ Bossa Nova produces weekly mini-mixes for his friends and fans to download for FREE, while maintaining residencies in both Hollywood and Santa Monica.
