Sound Off

Pickster One on RoQ'y TyRaid, Peachcake, and Boys and Frogs

Welcome to the latest installment of our weekly feature, Sound Off, where Jason P. Woodbury is joined by a different guest each week to listen to and discuss three tracks from local Phoenix artists. If you would like your songs to be considered for future Sound Off columns, please email [email protected]. Dusty Hickman, known as Pickster One or Pickster Uno when he's on the wheels of steel, knows music. He's at the forefront of the moombahton movement, and the disc he dropped off when we sat down to for this week's Sound Off was loaded with remixes of diverse artists: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, Bill Withers, A Tribe Called Quest, and more. Read on as the prolific DJ and I tackle songs from local hip-hop firestarter RoQ'Y TyRaiD, electro pop act Peachcake, and a French contribution from Boys and Frogs.
