Dregs One's "Pushin'" video was shot at Amoeba SF Saturday, edited yesterday, & released today
With the release today of his Leo Docuyanan filmed video for "Pushin'" San Francisco hip-hop artist Dregs One is the latest in a long line of hip-hop artists to feature the San Francisco Amoeba Music store in their music videos - a list that includes such hip-hoppers as Drake and Equipto to name but a couple. But unlike those and most others who typically feature quick shots/edits of Amoeba in their music videos Dregs One's entire video is shot on location at Amoeba SF - both inside and outside the Haight Street, San Francisco store. Today I reached out to the talented young MC/producer to ask him about the video shoot; how long it took and how the experience was shooting at Amoeba?
"Well basically I shot the video on Saturday, edited it on Sunday [yesterday], uploaded it on Monday [today]. The entire filming process took about 10 minutes, we only did one other shot before the one we used in the video," said Dregs One of the incredibly fast turnaround in this production, noting that. "All the staff was real cool about us filming in there, and I've been going to that store since I was a kid so it was an honor for me to be able to do a video at Amoeba."
While, as seen in the opening shots of the video above where he is digging in the Amoeba CD hip-hop section, Dregs One's music is available for sale at Amoeba this song "Pushin" is actually a free giveaway track on the free download The Inspiration mixtape from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?6225tj96e6ydkyu or here http://dregs1.bandcamp.com. As for what lies ahead in 2012 for the always productive Dregs One who was interviewed here on the Amoeblog over the past year on two occasions here and here, he told me that, "Right now I'm planning to go on a benefit tour where proceeds from each show go to a local nonprofit organization in each city. That's going to start in late May. I don't want to say too much about my next project but I'm planning on doing an EP with a very special producer and putting it out for free download and vinyl."
