In July of 2018, I got the call that Ableton wanted to do a “One Thing” with me. ..
Viewing entries in
I decided in 2018 to go back to what sparked creativity in me back in 2011. To force myself to make a song in 1 hour every week for a year.
This time around I'm going to do it live on Thursdays at Noon Pacific (depending on my schedule).
2 YEARS AGO...
I HAD ONE OF THE EASIEST SONG WRITING SESSIONS EVER
with a guy by the name Joseph Minadeo. We met when my crew Space Circus had him perform. I started asking him about he got indie scoring gigs. He told me to come by and we can talk and hang out, maybe make some music. I didn't know we'd make an album.
I got some footwork inspired tracks for you. Some fun, some dark all danceable. Check it out and if you want to download the whole thing.
[bandcamp album=2643424712 bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=c4311c size=grande3] My debut EP, of all original music, Man on Mars lands on May 1st.
Man on Mars is a concept album of an astronaut and his journey to Mars and back.
There will also be a Release Party at Grand Star Jazz Club on May 1st at 9pm. If you are in the Los Angeles Area, come out, other Space Circus residents will be performing and Special Guest like Captain Kirk and Repeated Measures. If you download the whole EP you may get a bonus track or two.

Release Party Information:
[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/84015666" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /] Team Supreme is a weekly Beat Cypher here in L.A., that is regulated by a sample and a BPM and is usually available to a select few. This week though, they had open submissions and mine was selected. "The Calm" is exactly that, hope you enjoy.
This sample we all recieved was great, Ventla's "Technical Support", and I had fun with it. Check out the other flips.
[bandcamp track=2291202115 bgcol=fafafa linkcol=1f9e36 size=venti] King Red is a celebration of achievement for our astronaut. Don't know what I'm talking about, well I'm working on an EP called Man on Mars.
