Deep & Ben Boogie were resident DJs at New York City’s legendary NUYORICAN POETRY CLUB. They have traveled around the states with Artists LIFE LONG & FRESH DAILY. The 2 producers, raised in New York City’s (pre-gentrified) L.E.S., call themselves the 2 Hungry Bros. They have been friends since the 1st grade. They’ve produced break through hits for artists Lodeck, Many Styles, Homeboy Sandman, L.I.F.E. Long & Fresh Daily.
They have also worked with known Hip Hop Artists Substantial, Hangar 18, Reef the Lost Cauze, Tanya Morgan, Breez Evahflowin, U.G. (Cella Dwellas), Mr. Sinister, Mickey Factz and many more.
Deep has performed with the 2 Hungry Bros’ respective artists at such events like City Sol ’08, Rocksteady ’08, Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival ’08 & ’09, Scribble Jam ’07 and their music has been performed by artists in the continuing years. Deep has shared the stage with Das Efx, Jeru the Damaja, Heiroglyphics, Rakim, the Roots, Boot Camp Click, Brand Nubian, Chip Fu, Immortal Technique, Louis Logic, J-Live, Aesop Rock, Slug of Atmosphere, and many more.
“If Deep hasn’t spun at your east coast party, then he’s produced a track for one of your favorite independent artists… A notorious doctor of sampling, Deep – along with his fellow Hungry Brother Ben Boogz- can surprise masses with rare flamenco samples or even a video game loop. The New York native’s beats are completely unpredictable, much like the night of your deflowering.” … Kathy Iandoli for Skope May-June 2007
“Most of ya’ll know that the 2 Hungry Bros have got that heat when it comes to the beats. It’s only a matter of time before their payday comes.” Thug E. Fresh to Def Interboro Rock Tribune summer’06
