I've filled out so many bios Im not even sure what to say anymore that hasn't been said already. Im just going to start typing and see where it goes lol! Lets start with the obvious, Im a beat-maker/producer from Beacon New York. Its one train ride and a transfer away from NYC. I've been at it a decade and change now, I started out using whatever I could get my eager little hands on, keyboards, DAW's, anything, everything. I got into sampling because this is where I found my niche, Im the type of person that if you lay out a puzzle in front of me its going to get put together, I have to do it or it will drive me insane all day. It puts itself together. Re-arranging samples like anagrams to spell out what I want it to. You cannot do what I do if you don't truly love music, I don't do it for other people, I do it for me and if others enjoy it then it means everything to me. I do not quantize, if a snare is slightly off then its meant to be, human element! I don't use any stock sounds, I meticulously chop out each hat, every snare, every kick. Every sound is selected by ear and I lay it down all by hand. I can see sounds with shapes to accompany them, triangular comet-like snares with a tail trailing behind it, hi-hat spikes similar to a heart-beat on an EKG, incendiary circular kicks that resemble BOOM! I truly love Hip-Hop. All I listen to is old soul, rock, jazz, classical, nothing is what it seems. I stopped listening to mainstream rap about 10 years ago, I have absolutely no idea what is "hot" right now. Music is very powerful, in under 3 minutes it has the power to change a person's entire outlook on life stemming into behavioral changes and dress habits. In that regard it is very much like religion.
Anyway, back to the point, I love samples! I used to drive people crazy by playing the same song over and over just to hear a 5 second portion, practically every piece of music I hear has something amazing about it embedded within it where the person's energy and personality somehow became one with sound itself, captured, fused together intensely if only for a brief moment, that is what Third3ar is all about. I absolutely love the sound of vinyl, the texture, to me there is no comparison, not debatable, digital sound is too perfect, it is robotic and comparing MP3 to vinyl is like comparing a flat dial-tone to a symphony that envelops the entire room. Watercolors to oil paint. Every vinyl record is unique and has a life of its own, due to the aging process they all sound different and to me the crackling sound is like street graffiti with light dancing off of the edges, I prefer to buy vinyl from yard-sales and thrift stores because I know it will be extra dirty, it will have a story behind it.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope I've made myself sound insane enough to pique your interest lmfao. Best wishes to you and yours.
