For a while now, I've been producing chill/lo-fi tracks (some of which you might see clips of on my Instagram). Years ago, before any of my YouTuber remixes and before making those viral troll songs, I was mainly producing chill/lo-fi style hip-hop beats (back then they were sometimes referred to it as "trip-hop"). So, I've been getting more active with producing that style of music again and I'm in the process of creating a collection of these tracks which I will be releasing as a "lo-fi" album. I'm aiming to release that album online in the next few months. While producing this album, I'll also still be actively working on YouTuber remixes and my other "regular" content as well :)
New Chill/Lo-Fi album dropping!
After months in the works, I will be releasing my new chill/lo-fi project. I've uploaded many videos on Instagram of partial tracks that are short and unfinished. This new album was built by selecting some of the best ones and going back and building them into full tracks/songs.
My vision for this album is trying to create a soundtrack/soundscape emulating the journey of altered states of consciousness, most specifically falling unconscious and dreaming (and that strange/trippy fluidity that your subconscious creates while you’re under). In addition to the various instruments I played on the tracks of this album, I also used the turntable as an instrument using "platter play" technique (using a keyboard to control the speed/pitch of the turntable in order to play melodies at will). DJing (specifically turntablism) has been a love of mine for years, and to create an album which heavily features the turntable as a lead melodic instrument is truly exciting for me - I love it. I'm really excited about it and I will update more info shortly :)
I make music… from many angles.
Musician, Composer, Producer, Vocalist, DJ, Band Leader, Looper, Remixer, Gamer, …Everythingist.
I’m a self-taught, multi-instrumental musician with an innate passion for creating and performing. I’ve been writing and producing all styles of music for many projects and contracted assignments for many years now, as well as performing live on stage as a musician/vocalist (with my band Aquavibe) and also as a DJ. Some of the music I’ve created has been licensed and featured:
-on TV commercials (ie – Victoria’s Secret, Gillette, etc),
-as network theme songs (on ESPN, MTV, etc.),
-in film soundtracks and video games (with my band Aquavibe),
-and also on YouTube (ie- gaming videos by KYR SP33DY, MiniLadd, Vanoss, Lui Calibre, FaZe Clan, Seananners, Sandy Ravage, etc.)
The Crew, Mix 2
This is a video of the song "Covered" I made under the "Stereodome" project in collaboration with Lyle Greenfield of Bang Music. Lyle wrote the lyrics and asked me to create a pop-style song around them, with an organic, somewhat retro vibe to it. All music and vocals are written, created, and performed by me (lead/backing vocals, guitar, bass, piano, etc.). The video was shot and produced by Unarmed Media Inc. on a very cold day this past November on the Highline in New York City. We were out there FREEZING all day but we had a bunch of fun! The cast, and movie crew were all awesome people and we really had a great time - loved meeting and working with the for sure. On of the main goals of producing this project was to create fun catchy music, and maybe in the process have it featured in media (movies, shows, etc) - we think it's a great fit for that :)
