On March 11, 2011 I released my first EP titled the “Hourglass EP” and am now in the process of a putting together a new project. This summer is dedicated towards working tediously on music, and it’s madd fun. Since recently reinvesting in my musical roots, you should expect to hear tons of trumpet in my music in the future. I’ll be posting all music related updates on here from now on, be sure to keep an eye out for new materiel.
Recently I had a dope performance on the upper east side alongside DJ Static. Plain and simple, Static is a beast. I’m honored to be able to work with him both in concert and in the studio. Please check his music out on http://www.reverbnation.com/djstatic222 and keep an eye out for his upcoming album! Static is the main reason I’m investing time in my trumpet again. After asking me to lay down some horn lines on some of his beats, I’ve discovered the importance of incorporating the trumpet as much as possible. Thanks Static, keep being ill homie.
In the process of exploring my voice musically, I’ve spent hours listening to, and studying, artists I’d consider masterful MCs. This music has absolutely influenced the new sounds that I’m experimenting with. It seemed relevant to post some this music so, I hope you dig it
Frank Ocean – Super Rich Kids (Ft. Earl Sweatshirt)
Turnip The Beet – Asher Roth
Asher Roth is one of the dopest MC’s in the game right now and unfortunately isn’t well respected. His most recent project, “Pabts and Jazz” demonstrates jaw-dropping lyricism. This track, released separately, does the same. Peep it.
