VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Tista
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with DJ, producer and curator Tista, who is co-founder of event planning group Non-Pop. He’s also co-founder of Drop the Needle, an organization that raises money to battle opioid addiction. They discussed Tista’s beginnings DJing house parties, his EP with Tanner Dixon, Non-Pop’s concept, Drop the Needle’s mission, and navigating quarantine.
