Plus the Instrumentals!
10 Years! Wow! Yes, 10 Years ago me and my Crown City Rockers brothas released our album “Earthtones”, now, considered by many, an underground hip hop classic. We had so much fun recording, touring, and sharing our music with everyone. This album and the experience it gave us opened up so many doors to different adventures and relationships. If you were ever a part of a live show, you know what I’m talking about. If you never had a chance to check us out live, Headnodic edited together this awesome footage of one of our shows at the Independent SF. On Tuesday we’ll celebrate by giving Earthtones, plus some unreleased joints to you for FREE! We all wish we could’ve gotten together to do another show, but alas, that show will have to wait. Congrats to Raashan Ahmad, Pete Woodstock Alvarado, Max MacVeety& Ethan Headnodic Parsonage. Love you guys and everyone who we’ve had the pleasure of meeting along the way! Do you have any specific memories of Earthtones? Let’s hear em!!!

Check out this awesome remix that was unearthed in the old and forgotten hard drives of People Under The Stairs!
We did this remix for fun a long time ago. So glad Thes found it and wanted to put it out
It gives “Nebulous” a new facelift and is the perfect summer jammy jam to bump with all the windows down!

Since March 2013, I’ve been working as Composer for the SF based start up, ToyTalk, founded by Oren Jacob, who was Disney’s Pixar (DIS) CTO before becoming CEO of ToyTalk.
It really has been an amazing experience! I get to compose all different genres of music, and in turn push my composition skills and orchestral scoring.
Here’s what it’s all about:
The 1st release from ToyTalk is an iOS app for iPad called The Winston Show. It has generated quite a buzz for it’s cutting edge voice recognition technology. The Winston Show became the No. 1 most downloaded entertainment app in Apple’s App Store; downloads number in the six digits, exceeding the company’s initial expectations.
