Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Producer Divided Thoughts (along with counterpart Tott Bebop) was born in Tokyo, Japan and was lucky enough to experience the vast influences of different cultures from around the world from a young age; from Tokyo to London, Paris to Sydney, Divided Thoughts was well traveled by the time his parents moved him to New York in 1994;
There, Divided Thoughts became heavily influenced by the sounds during the East Coast's golden generation of Hip Hop, before again relocating to the West Coast for his high school in 2000 as Dr Dre's 2001 album dropped, further expanding his interest in hip hop. However, due to the direction of hip hop in the mid 2000's and Divided Thoughts took a self imposed exile from Hip Hop, while continuing to remember the multicultural influences his parents exposed from a young age, and began to explore the likes of all music from, Classical to Ska, Punk to Dubstep.
Now though, Divided Thoughts is back from his self imposed hiatus after rekindling his love for classic Hip Hop, as well as arming himself with a sphere of multicultural influences, and has begun to emulate his street heroes such as Slum Village's J Dilla, De La Soul, Mos Def & Talib Kweli, the Roots, Nujabes & Tsutchie with his love of vast love of multiculturalism in his music;
****Divided Thoughts also encourages the idea of free sharing of his music for no profit, only credit if his instrumentals are used*****
Seriously, just a shout out will do.
