Mike Dean was the subject of a HYPETRAK TV video interview where they talked to the producer “from the comforts of his smoke-filled home studio.” They explored how he creates music and Dean shared some stories from his impressive career. He recalled that his first “big job” was for Selena. “I met her father in a music store and got way into latino music for a while.”

“He tweeted some stuff on my birthday. Some cool shit,” Dean told HYPETRAK referring to Kanye West. “That I was like one of the best livings musicians.” That is probably the best compliment one can receive from Yeezy. The producer also revealed he has a lot of new stuff in the works with artists like Lorde, Beyoncé, and more. Watch the full interview above.
