Tune in as Audiofix interviews CEO, DJ and Chopped and Screwed Ambassador Michael "5000" Watts.
Known primarily for his chopped and screwed Swisha House remixes, Watts has successfully turned regional mix tape distribution into a record label empire. 2005 brought about national notoriety for Michael “5000” Watts. His company,Swisha House, celebrated with the chart topping victories of Houston hip-hop rookies turned luminaries Paul Wall (The People’s Champ, 2005) and Mike Jones (Who Is Mike Jones, 2005) as well as a number of highly acclaimed independent releases featuring a gifted mass of up and coming artists including the unforgettable The Day Hell Broke Loose: Parts 1 & 2 (1999, 2003).
He quickly moved on to become a household name on the streets of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The rest of the nation has officially adopted the sound of a genre in itself, chopped and screwed music. Also to his accomplishments, Watts adds being the first DJ to have a screwed and chopped major label CD when he remixed Eightball & MJG’s Space Age 4 Eva in 2001.He followed this feat with the release of David Banner’s Mississippi: The Album.
I have a mix show that I’m doing on KBXX 97.9 The Box in Houston, Tx. every Sunday 9:00pm-11:00pm and we do straight Swisha House mixes, screwed and chopped. I’m dedicated to doing those shows every week. I try to make sure I stay in the streets and in touch with what’s going on.” says Watts
Now he’s starting a new venture in his career by teaming up with Tx electronic music master Badbowy BMC Trill Step. Trill Step is a southern version of Dub Step created by Badbowy BMC. The first mix Return 2 Trill Step is available on line now.
