DJ Fresh is a DJ and producer who makes more rounds than his turntables.

His original home of Baltimore, Maryland is just one of the many places DJ Fresh has called home. He moved from B-More when he was nine years old, to the South Bay city of San Jose California. It was at this time in his life "Fresh" kid decided to add the DJ to his name and committed himself to music.

DJ Fresh is now a veteran producer and DJ, who's name rings bells and beats rattles trunks. His resume boasts projects and performances with Hip-Hop heavy weights like Nas, Common, and Raekwon. His travels has lead him to the East coast, the West coast, and now he's poised to go on an international tour with Lil Kim.

But before he embarked on his next journey, I caught up with DJ Fresh, as the workaholic was poised to record yet another track for the upcoming "Tonite Show" project. He and San Quinn couldn't spare a minute to pause the track as they were grinding away on the upcoming DJ Fresh album.

In this brief video interview, Fresh gives us insight into his formula.

DJ Fresh's "Tonite Show" album series can be seen via advertisements floating in the Bay Area streets, and can be heard rattling avenues in the Bay and beyond. He has teamed up with a number of talented producers, and formed the group, "The Whole Shabang." The Whole Shabang production team works with the top local artists J- Stalin, D-Lo and Messy Marv -- among others. To get a taste of what the combination of talented producers and top artists sounds like, here is a three piece special:

A new track titled "I Am" by an up and coming artist, Young Gully

Secondly, a track titled "Hardest in the Bay" by D-Lo.

And lastly, an older track, but still one of my favorites.

"We go dumb in the bay"- Mistah Fab.
