O.G. One joins Mic Check
Mic Check PDX is happy to welcome DJ O.G. One to the team. A mentor for the Portland scene for a number of years, O.G. was a producer and DJ for Mic Check creator StarChile.
"It's such a gift to have O.G. on stage with us at each event" says new host DJ Klyph. "I was ready to retire the night when Star passed away and O.G. reminded me that this is a great way to continue his legacy".
Along with the growth of the team, there has also been growth in the event. Mic Check will be expanding it's features with the addition of a producer beat showcase with some of the city's best and it's only right to kick this of with a set from Mic Check DJ Trox at the June event.
Another addition is the Mic Check Cypher where emcees will have an opportunity to spit there best 16 bars live on stage over the night's featured producer's beat.
The popular Open Mic Check segment will continue to be a part of the event, and to fit all these new segments, doors will open an hour earlier at 8pm with the show beginning at 9.
