DJ Drop, the nightlife luminary who helped popularize the D-Town Boogie way back, oh, a year ago, is the subject of Pete's sidebar in this year's Best of Dallas Scenes section, and in the video above, you'll hear him talk about how he worked his way into such a central role in the nightlife scene.

You'll also see Drop and the rest of his Definition DJs collective in one of their regular meetings, where they go over the hottest tracks in the club lately, hear from new artists and decide which they want to promote. It's a behind-the-scenes look at a crucial step for any local hip-hop artist hoping to make it.

Whether you're into the Stanky Legg, the Iron Cactus or the red-tailed hawk, you'll find someplace that fits your style in the Best of Dallas issue online--and for a more visual angle, check out our scenes slideshow.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
