Spesh and I started to work together eleven years ago at Y&R Advertising. I was a Media Supervisor and he was a wee Media Planner. It's been fun to see Spesh's music grow from a hobby to what it is now.

111 Minna

Minna has changed a lot over time. In the early years, circa 1997, Spesh and the DJ's would spin from a makeshift booth located over the bathroom. It was a cramped but fun place--you could hang out and watch the scene below while Spesh pumped up the energy level. Qoöl/Minna continues to expand in size and reputation, with an elevated stage and hanging DJ box added several years back.
