Introducing Dex

Friday, August 04, 2006

Please introduce yourself.
They Call me Dex "the Riffraff" McGriff...Coming at you Via satellite from Oxnard "the OX" CA...I wouldn't consider myself in the "Music Industry" in the Underground scene we kinda fly our own flag you know... but I've been doing my music street level since about 97.

What's your creative process?

Letting my fingers hit the pads, and if it comes out nice, letting the pen hit the paper, and staying consistent...I feel if I stay on that path I can't go wrong.

How long does it take you to record one song?

It varies. If there is chemistry in the room, then no time at all...sometimes it will take a while if I want it to sound a certain way. I ain't no "ONE TAKE" mc if that's what you're asking. ONE TAKE mc's is what's going on with the radio right now, ya dig...in the OX we strive for perfection...and believe me when I say it ain't always perfect.

Who would you love to collaborate with?
Pretty much anybody with skills. Anybody I can learn something from...OhNo & Madlib of course; J-Zone is tight; I would have loved to collab with Dilla(R.I.P), Blame one, Roc-C, RedMan, anybody from Wu but Ghostface; Helta Skelta...just to name a few, my list goes on & on, but I'm pretty open minded.

How would an artist interested in working with you be able to contact you?
Just hit me up...I collabed with a cat named Ivan- Ice from The Netherlands via email. We have half of a project done. Like I said I'm pretty open minded when it comes to true skills.

What are your current projects?
Sheesh...I'm always in the lab, that's why they call me Dex. Let me see...nothing major, mostly stuff for the heads. I got "Low-Class: The soundtrack Mix tape" floating around from '03. I put out "The Pirate King on 7/4/06". I'm working on a project with a cat named Archives right now, no name yet and as I had mentioned earlier, I'm working with a cat from The Netherlands as well named Ivan-Ice on a Project named "Cold Summer."

How can readers get a hold of some of your music?
I'm not real big on plugin myself. I believe the "if you build it, they will come," but look it up if you're curious, or just hit me up. I'll make it available to download.

Dex is on myspace. Check him out at http://www.myspace.com/dextheriffraffmcgriff
