In Memoriam: Deep River

My heart has been hurting these past few days. I have been at a loss for words, and unable to cope with recent events. Too long has the knee of tyranny lay upon the neck of the weak. Know that we are not weak. Know that we will not be silenced. Know that we do matter. Know that we will not allow this to continue. Know their names.

Because I am unable to participate in the protests in New York, I have released this cover of the spiritual “Deep River”. This piece means so much to me, and painfully captures what so many around the world are going through each and every day. This piece has always comforted me in my times of need, and I hope it can do the same for you. Please follow the links below to help out in any way that you can. If you have a charity you think should be on this list, please feel free to donate to them instead or reach out to me and I will add it to my list.

New Releases – Rum Runners!

So excited to announce the release of these three singles. I’ve been working with Paul James, Jay Mcoy, and BYNX for over a year now on their debut projects, and I am so proud of how far these guys have come. When we first started working on these, we were recording out of my home-studio in my apartment in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Thank god there were only three of them, because there was only enough room for two of them to sit down at the same time! Within just a few months we had recorded 3-4 demo tracks each, had landed recording time at Red Bull Studios in New York, and I had moved into a larger space for us to work in. It took a lot of hard work and determination but these guys really pulled through. Click the links below to check out the new music!

New Studio!! – Youtube Channel Announcement

64E8333D-0042-4699-B9E4-365034168EDA.JPG

I recently upgraded to a larger studio space. Took a while to get everything set up, but I’m very glad I made the move. I even converted an old closet into a make-shift vocal booth, which sounds great!

I filmed a time-lapse of me tearing down my old studio, and building my new one from scratch. The video will premier later this year on my brand-new Youtube Channel! Be sure to subscribe, I’ll be posting production tutorials in Ableton, Mixing tutorials in Pro Tools, and regular updates on my life as an audio engineer. Hope to see you there!

N-amouR: Red Bull Music Studios

I am so excited to announce that I have been selected to produce for the Red Bull Content Pool! Over the course of seven days, I produced, mixed, and mastered 16 tracks across multiple genres. From hip-hop and trap beats, to pop, riddim, and dance music, this collection is a representation of all the creative energy I had in 2018. You can have a listen below:

These tracks are now available to license for visual media with Red Bull Content Pool. Have a listen and let me know which one is your favorite!

Updated Credits:

It’s a great feeling when the credits are released for a record you worked on. The early mornings and even later nights spent working summed up in just a few short lines of text. I’m truly honored to have been a part of so many incredible projects over the last year. Now that they are starting to emerge, it feels good to reflect on all of the hard work and dedication that the artists, engineers, and myself have put towards making great music.

I’d also like to give credit to those who aren’t mentioned on official credit lists. To all of the friends, family, and loved ones who support those who take on such an enormous task:

Thank you for your love and support. I know that I wouldn’t be here without you, and I’m sure that many can say the same.
