"Working Progress", is Destro's newest EP!!! Hella Free! So catch feelings Here!
Destro has long established himself as one of the premier Emcee’s in the Northwest Hip Hop scene. As one half of Boom Bap Project and a founding member of Oldominion, Destro has performed around the globe sharing the stage with Del the Funky Homosapien, Blackalicious, Brother Ali, The Roots, and many others. Destro grew up in Portland OR and started performing at local clubs in the late 90’s before moving to Seattle for a few years. While in Seattle, Destro joined forces with Karim, and with the help of super-producers Jake One, Vitamin D and Mr. Hill, they released “Circumstance Dictates” and “Reprogram,” the latter on the mighty Rhymesayers Entertainment label. Destro moved back in Portland in between the two records and continued to tour. While back home, Destro helped in creating “Thorn City Improv,” an all-freestyle collective/ live band that did a weekly night for almost 2 years.
Fast-forward to 2010 and Destro is set to release his first solo project in partnership with Vinyl Fluid Records. The EP titled “Working Progress” is a collection of six new songs and a bonus track that serve as a primer for his full-length album “Ill.ustrated” due out in early 2011. “Working Progress” is a tribute to independent thinkers everywhere and deals with the struggle of chasing one’s dreams.
