Specializing in dark, emotional, brooding, synth-heavy or sample-based productions. Producing hip-hop for half of my life (last 15 years). Took a 3 year hiatus (2010-2013) to perform, write and produce electro-rock with now defunct band 'Girls Would Kill'
Began beat-making back in 2000 with FL studio, went through a Recording Arts program, graduated onto Pro Tools. Relied on the Akai MPC-1000 for years before finally settling on Ableton Live.
With an MPD midi controller, I'm able to recreate the freedom & playability once enjoyed on the MPC, in-the-box.
My time with the band expanded my musical horizons greatly & now I bring the freedom and musicianship I found, back into my hip-hop and electronic production.
In the last 3 years I've been releasing bootleg remixes and genre-skipping instrumentals under the name Guilty†Priest.
Produced tracks & entire albums for the internet's own, Gorgeous Geordie.
Contributed production for vaporwave's, Eco Virtual ( on Atmospheres #2 & Atmospheres #4)
I'm offering custom beat production & my ever-growing beat catalogue to rappers / singers that are interested in working together or using my unique sound to round out their projects.
