Born and raised in the New York City area in the late 1960s, I have been exposed to and appreciated different genres of music from several eras. It is amazing how much music has changed over the years and how it has been so influential in my life.
When I was younger, I admired the music my parents would listen to like blues, jazz, big band, and disco. After my mother passed away in the late 1970s, I became more active musically and decided to create my own signature sounds and break beats. In the 1980s, disco began to die down and hip-hop became more and more prevalent on the streets and on the radio stations. Many of those artists inspired me to become one of the premier hip-hop producers in the local town. R&B, was and still is, a rival to hip-hop and adopted the styles of many of those artists. Lakeview, NY was, and still is, filled with much of that same kind of talent and I hooked up with a group of gentlemen known today as X-Fakkta Entertainment. After countless house parties, studio recording sessions, talent shows, and radio interviews, X-Fakkta Entertainment became my 2nd family. I even had a radio mix show on then WBAU 90.3 FM in Garden City, NY from 1991-1997.
Today, with technology evolving at such a high rate, I have recently become acclimated to the modern methods of producing, arranging, engineering, mixing, and mastering music. You would never believe that the creation of songs of today’s era requires this level of detail and care. But it does!!
What sets me apart from the rest of today’s producers is the ability to create hit music material by infusing modern digital sounds and effects with classic instruments. Rest assured that what I bring to the table is deep, skillfull and soulful with the sounds of ambience and full emotion. This is how I do! If you feel the energy and power in these words, please join me in my quest for success. It is not easy being me BUT it sure is a lot of fun!!
