Petey Wheatstraw (aka Pete Bekke)'s interest in DJing began during the hight of the DJ battle scene. Petey took that interest and made it a reality in 2003 when he got his hands on his first set of turntables. Petey got his start in the Minneapolis underground hip hop scene playing hip hop shows and parties but as his love for the craft increased he grew more and more interested in playing music that got people dancing. Stepping out of hip hop clubs and into dance clubs he saw the joy and success his playing brought to crowds who were interested in dancing & partying.
