A few weeks ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to interview one of my favorite DJ’s Mick Boogie after his set at an Above Ground party in SF. We spoke about his days in college radio, DJ-ing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, how he chooses the artists he works with and the process behind his projects. We also spoke about where he found the Pharrell intro on his Pharrell tape, the process behind the Dilla tape, working with Nitty Scott, MC, his favorite project he’s done, his favorite artists to work with and his favorite tracks to play when he does live DJ sets. He also spoke about Little Brother, doing an upcoming Beastie Boys tribute project, possibly a Neptunes Side B project and more.

Dallas new comer, by way of Tucson, AZ, emcee/producer Dibbz Dreek of Fresh Life Curriculum has been cultivating his craft since age of 11. Early motivation to be a hip hop artist came from his uncle who was a house party DJ and had every virtually record related to the genre released in the late 80’s. The true inspiration to rap came from the first CD he ever owned, Ice Cube’s “Death Certificate”. Shortly after his freshman year at Tucson High School he became known for his knack to freestyle about everything from current events and to high school rumors and do so with detailed imagery. Not long after high school he teamed up with high school friends to create” The Corp”, a 4 emcees- 3 producer collective. Several years later, The Corp would split into 2 factions, one of them called “Fresh Life Curriculum” who Dibbz Dreek remains aligned with. Now residing in Dallas, TX the artist has reemerged and has begun to showcase his talent and passion via his newly claimed solo stage.
