I have been producing music for the past 5-6 years. I use an akai mpc 1000 and record into garage band. I am heavy sample based usig deep melodic piano chords, rich orchestral sounds and heavy 808's. I try to take lyrics from songs that everyone knows and manipulate it in a manner that it sounds new. I really like using foreign opera music and I try to make myself laugh from beats as much as possible. I can not really classify myself in a genre of music because I wander around a lot on the pads. I have a lot of fun with the music I make, I am not in this game for money, I am in it for expression. All my music can be downloaded for free.
I have been influenced mainly by Rza, J.Dilla, MF Doom, DJ Muggz, Premier, Dan Deacon, Harry Fraud, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Pharell, David Bowie, Nina Simone, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Justice, Vitalic, Mononome and Most of All Philip Glass!
I also perform with my older brother Dyaphonoyze in the all hardware bass music group W.B.O.D. We have our own take on the bass music craze going on in the world. We pride ourselves by not having a computer on stage when we play or being used in production other than sampling youtube and soundboards. We use an Mpc 1000, Korg EMX-1, Korg EMS-1 and a Korg Micro Sampler.
We have performed with the following acts: Builder, Megalodon, Liquid Stranger, Skulltrane, Audiobomb, Energy Alchemist, Supplying Demand, Foobz.
Thank You for supporting my expressions of music, I bought my mpc used with the money left to me by my mother, rest her soul. As an outlet for me to express my feeling through the beats of my life. I never read a manual and I still teach myself something new almost every time I use the machine. When you keep learning you keep progressing.
