What used to be a musical movement enriched by culture and heritage and energized by struggle and oppression has become all too lollipop and gumdrops. That’s where Depree comes in. Inspired by the founders of the Differential Flavor Crew, Tony Estevez and Infinite, as well as other gurus of the game like Storm and Ken Swift, he began breaking in late 1999 and hasn’t missed a beat since. His dedication to the art—and it is an art—of breakdancing has made him the current leader of the Differential Flavor Crew as well as a much-respected b-boy in the community and the like.

In 2005 Depree founded Verve Dance Studio, which has become the home of the Battle @ Buffalo, a monthly event where b-boys and b-girls show up to display their skills. The Buffalo native has become a driving force behind Buffalo’s own breakdance and hip-hop dance scene.
