Mike Dean, the legendary Grammy Award-winning hip hop producer, engineer, and writer sat down with us to give us a glimpse into his creative process. Mike Dean’s career spans across decades and his longevity has allowed him to work alongside some of the biggest artists of our generation including; Kanye West, Travis Scott, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kid Cudi, and 2Pac to name a few.
Dean's unique production style has been instrumental in shaping the hip-hop landscape over the last three decades. Jon Platt, President of Warner Chappell Music once said, “Few producers have the talent to sustain a career as long, diverse and prolific as Mike’s. From 2Pac to Kanye and everyone in between, Mike has helped great artists define new sounds. He’s always innovating, not only within hip hop but across pop music in general.” “Working with Mike and Distrolord Digital was a pleasure. They have such a relaxed and chill approach to working that you feel as if you’re working on a project with friends. Nothing feels corporate or faceless with Distrolord.” - AZE
