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.
