Music Production

On any given night that I am not out rockin’ the ones and twos, you can find me in the lab, sampling, chopping, pushing buttons and sliding faders. I have been producing since 1996. My first production releases was for my former Turntable Band/Crew The Elefaders. We released two now very hard to find albums circa 2003-2006 Elefaders One and The Moon EP. Since then I have steady been producing tracks for my crew: Specs Wizard, Silas Blak, Tulsi, Black Magic Noize, Suntonio Bandanaz, Wizdumb, Alcazar, and more. I have contributed scratches to countless other projects including the intro track Contact HI (video here) to EarDr.Umz’ power packed Hear To Heal LP, as well as Wizdumb’s highly regarded Mostly Crew album and Tulsi’s past 5 releases including the team-up EP that he Specs Wizard and I released in 2009 titled Nothing To No One.

Graphic Design and Web Design

Most daylight hours will find me working away in my studio designing all manner of cool things, including logos/branding, print pieces, web sites, WordPress themes, album covers, posters, stickers, PPT presentations, info graphics and soooo much more. I’ve been a professional freelance designer since 2005. My design portfolio can be found at FADE Graphics http://fade.graphics.com
