Intellekt and Dirty Digits


By the time Dillon Maurer (Intellekt) and Dan Chavez (Dirty Digits) crossed paths at a B-boy battle in 2003, they were due for a come-up. Both were staples in Florida's growing indie Hip-hop community. From Tallahassee, Chavez had for several years been the Urban Music Director at Florida State University's student radio station (WVFS, 89.7) and Program Director for "The Undaground Railroad," a popular local Hip-hop show.

By the time Dillon Maurer (Intellekt) and Dan Chavez (Dirty Digits) crossed paths at a B-boy battle in 2003, they were due for a come-up. Both were staples in Florida's growing indie Hip-hop community. From Tallahassee, Chavez had for several years been the Urban Music Director at Florida State University's student radio station (WVFS, 89.7) and Program Director for "The Undaground Railroad," a popular local Hip-hop show. Maurer, then a senior at the University of Florida in Gainesville, was actively booking and promoting tour dates for major label Hip-hop artists, as well as performing shows of his own throughout Florida.

He also started and hosted Gainesville's first indie Hiphop show on Magic 101.3 FM, "Sunday Night Leftovers," which is still going strong today. At the age of 21, Maurer had already earned praise in the local press and been taken under the wing of then Orlando-locals/Sage Francis tour-mates, the Sol.iLLaquists Of Sound (signed to Epitaph in 2005). In need of a master turntablist for live performances and for an album on which he'd begun work, Maurer reached out to Chavez. It wasn't long before the self-released " Intellektual Property ," (2004) Intellekt's first full length effort featuring the wizardry of Dirty Digits, put them on the map as a critic's pick and a fan favorite.

After increased booking and the creation of a solid local fan-base, Intellekt and Dirty Digits decided to officially solidify as a group in August of 2004. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
