I make hard hip hop and dance music, My music has been played by Diplo, Skrillex, Carnage, Krewella, and more on some of the biggest festival stages in the world.
I have been producing hip-hop since I was 13 years old (25 now) and have since evolved into producing a wider range of music. I work almost exclusively out of Ableton but also familiar with Logic. I have done remixes for LNY TNZ released on the Barong Label and many other unofficial remixes that have accumulated millions of plays online (youtube, soundcloud, etc). I have nearly 40k followers on soundcloud and will include a repost of any track that I produce or remix as a bonus to any work purchased. I'm always open to new ideas and fresh perspectives, very flexible, hit me up if you want your next track to bang!

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Malachi Mott, he is a mentor of mine and extraordinarily talented at what he does.

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A lot of people think that, what producers do is really just pressing a few buttons and dropping in sounds to make a track. Talented musicians make what they do look easy, just like all experts, it takes years and years of work to get to a level where you can work out a decent track in a day.

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If a customer wants to hire me, I would suggest they take a listen to my past work and see if what I do best is what they are looking for. I am flexible and can make anything, but if both me and the customer are both on the same page as far as what they want vs what I excel at, we can do some amazing work together.

A: Ableton, Kontakt, KRK Rokit 10's, an apollo interface, and a solar powered generator.

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Hood music meets the epic scale of a movie trailer with the dynamics of a roller coaster.
