About Me

I'm just a beat maker. Trying to get my work heard and my ability seen. I'm only now starting out in this field. I love music; urban styles in particular.

I'm into art. Not what's popular. I respect skill, ability and intelligence.

I really want to understand the music industry. I hear a heap of talk. I'd really like to see the truth of it for myself.

I want to see if I could make a living off of production as well.

I'm from Trinidad & Tobago. There is no music industry here. The people who've been successful in that field left in order to make it.

J. Dilla showed me how to work an MPC 3000. So you know I'm a Dilla hed. I would like to stand as the next canidate to either make beats for or get signed to Stones Throw records.

I meddle in alot of the UK's urban music artforms as well.

Instruments I play

I'm a drummer by trade. I can play a lil bass guitar and keyboards.

Software I Use

Pro Tools

Hardware I Use

Yamaha Motif, MPC 2000xl
