2016 was a tough one. Luckily, in swoops Oakland, CA’s 21 year old rap superhero Kamaiyah and drops her debut mixtape, “A Good Night in the the Ghetto” to save the day/year. “AGNITG” is a fonkay feel good record about being young (I’m not), having fun (I’m allergic), and partying West Coast style (allll day) over vintage Bay Area styled blaps of 80’s and 90’s R&B. On the mic, Kamaiyah is a natural spitter brimming with confidence and honesty whether rapping or singing or somewhere in-between. Hoochie Hoooo!

About Spencer Manio

Hi, my name is Spencer Manio and I am a senior music supervisor at PlayNetwork. I have been in the industry for 27 years.

Here is what shaped me into what I am today: AM radio, legal substances, buying old records, James Baldwin, graphic design, making beats, and Hammer pants (because who doesn’t love Hammer pants). I started DJing when I was 16 at school dances, which led to work at clubs and weddings. Naturally I started working at a record store, moving to record labels, starting my own street promotions company, and making music. All of this was a natural progression landing me at PlayNetwork in 2005.

I spend my days making sure all my clients have the freshest, on-brand, classic, and most importantly to me, the most progressive, cool new sounds that are appropriate for the brand. If you’re not pushing it forward you’re dead. However, the best part about my job is exposing the public to artists and songs they would normally not expect to hear at retail—and hopefully hip them to something new and cool to their ears.
