Guru Piece on SoundBetter

Soulful, psychedelic and street-wise at the same time kinda music. If you need to create a whole movie’s worth of vibe and atmosphere in just a few minutes of song time, look no further.

Able to provide unique and nuanced beats, overall production assistance along with basic mixing/mastering.

I’ve been producing Hip-Hop music since I was 15 years old. I’m now 21 and have grown to be able to produce at a highly efficient rate without compromising on quality and detail.

The style of music brings a new flavour to the realm of alternative Hip-Hop, combining the organic and gritty sensations found in the work of Madlib and J Dilla with fresh and unique sounds that paint a picture of the London urban scene.

    One of the best producers I’ve ever met. I don’t know anyone else in our generation who can flip old school samples the way he can. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can vibe to his music.

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I hand-craft unique and nuanced production for rappers and singers that help elevate the quality of music that they make, giving them a sound that will intrigue their audiences like no other.
