Born and raised in the New York City area in the late 1960s, I have been exposed to and had a profound understanding of different genres of music from several eras. It is amazing how much music has changed through 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 phased out 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 a genre played in parallel to the hip-hop art and styles between the genres became infused. Lakeview, NY was, and still is, filled with much of that same kind of talent and I hooked up with a group of influential bruthas 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 was even part of a radio mix show formerly known as WBAU 90.3 FM in Garden City, NY from 1991-1997.
Today, with technology evolving at such a quick pace, 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 precision. 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 analog 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 this, please join me in my quest for success!!
