Founding & core members producer/engineer/drummer/DJ, Skelli Skel and bassist/DJ, EmVKush played together in a progressive jazz metal band nearly 15 years ago and now find themselves focusing on the roots and foundation of music as we know it; rhythm and bass. Skelli Skel, who draws heavy influence from UK Garage and Bay Area rap like Mac Dre, is also very involved in the Hip Hop community in Portland, having provided production and engineering for the likes of Grape God, Slick Devious, Ripley Snell, and other known and respected Portland MC's & artists.

With a weekly radio show (Beats, Bass & Beyond) on Portland's cutting edge and community centered radio station, XRAY.FM, the PDX Mandem plan to continue to showcase their own music and productions along with the incredible amount of artistry and talent hailing from Portland, the west coast, the rest of the United States and beyond.THE PEOPLE'S DISPENSARYWe created The People’s Dispensary in 2016 because the medicinal herb market was not serving our needs as people of color, women, ***** people, veterans, formerly incarcerated and people with chronic illnesses. We started in Oakland thinking we’d serve a few hundred of our friends – but we quickly developed a loyal, diverse, active client base of almost 4,500 members, with a monthly retention rate of 84%.As we began to expand, however, we realized we were only solving part of the problem. The medicinal herb industry was (and still is) exploding, but the communities we served which make up the largest segment of this industry, were not being reflected in the new, legal cannabis market. Here is what we know:- Communities that surround the dispensary create the most value for our company.- Communities that know we are invested in their wellness and health are our best brand ambassadors.- Communities that see us providing workforce development and workforce opportunities will invest in our success because we are invested in theirs.- Communities that buy from us understand our commitment to them.The medicinal herb industry is projected to become a $500 billion market. The People’s Dispensary takes this unique opportunity to bring, the best medicinal herbs to its communities, financial wealth to its investors and create many opportunities to uplift the communities it serves.
