For me it usually starts as a number scheme like, “Mic check 1-2—30”. Followed by some free styling about the folks around me until the sound man says to shut up. I immediately close my trap because I want the sound guy to be my best friend for the night. By that time I should have had ample time to check my surroundings. Looking for sweet spots in the sound and where not to venture towards because of feedback in the mic.
Recently, I was testing a new microphone I had bought at a hip hop show. The Fifine K025 is truly a wireless mic. You literally, just plug into a quarter inch input jack, turn it on and go. At first glance, I loved how small of a foot print it left for storage and travel. The quality of the components and the cosmetics of the mic itself seemed to be great for the price of the unit. Back to the stage. It sounded great!
With 80 solid feet of range and 20 UHF frequencies I was able to cut out feedback from the tops and monitor speakers completely. Which, really made using this microphone for performance a whole lot of fun. I move around from one end of the stage to the other frequently and I had no worries of that god awful screeching sound.
To set up the K025 all you will need is two AA battery’s and two AAA battery’s. I do wish FiFine Technology would have went with one battery type or the other but, It’s ok. I can definitely move past that quickly because of the quality and price of the Microphone. It really compares to higher end brands out in the market today. Add that to being compact and easy to use and I believe we’ve got a great little budget mic for sure. Plug and Go! Happy jamming folks!

I’m extremely proud to present my newest video for the single I’m Dead! Filmed in Denver by Producer Colin Floom, Directed by Matthew Dean Russell with a guest appearance from none other than Chris “Birdman” Andersen, this video shines a light on my talents and mostly my ability to have a sense of humor. I don’t take myself as serious as most rappers do, my approach is humble and appreciative to the art form I use to express myself. I Love hip-hop! The Choreography is masterfully done by Kyla Beardsley White of Springfield Vermont and Kate Patterson of Denver Colorado. In my opinion it was a great collaboration and I expect most viewers would agree they captured the message. The Art crew were spot on (and really fun to work with) they were excellent people; featuring Paldo Ramirez: Art Director, Sonja Fasen: SFX Makeup and Brent Maxwell Fasen: Production Designer. They brought every scene to life in a major way. The video editor saw the story in the clips he was presented and told the story perfectly, I couldn’t be more happy with how it all came together, thank you Nicholas Deistler and I’m happy you are joining the team at So. 802 Studios. Finally, the man who saved the video Wil Evans. This video may have never came out if he hadn’t have saved that footage. Thank you Wil! If any of you viewers are ever in Denver Colorado go visit the bar at Society Sports and Spirits in Downtown Denver. You will be sure to enjoy yourself, Wil is a great guy. Now check this thing out and share it if you enjoy it :)
