Justin, tell us about http://www.dyverseproductions.com/ - how did you start the company?
Dy-verse Productions is a record label I started with local talent artists and producers, whose main focus is to expand our music to wider audiences.
Excellent idea to promote locally! What's the story behind its name?
I wanted to start a record label with homegrown talent, and since I was working with a very diverse group of emcees, rappers and other artists, I wanted to name it something diverse and it ended up being Dy-verse Productions.
We'd love to know who is who in the label - please share your background!
Me and my friend used to run a promotions/street team company called Hardlife Ent. I grew a network of local talent while promoting mainstream artists, and I decided to break off and form my own label with talent from our neighborhood and we’ve done showcases, radio, TV, Internet, press and toured around northern California and the west coast expanding our names.

What are your plans for the coming year?
This year our main focus is to make new visuals and music for the people to enjoy.
