Julian Marshall’s Obey The Giant is doing great to be quite frank. Posts on USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and Hypebeast along with a Vimeo staff pick and front page feature have garnered over 40k hits in the past few days. I can’t say how honored I am to have scored the film; knowing that so many people around the world are hearing my music is a dream come true.
To couple the film’s release, Julian just finished a new spec. When he hit me up to work on it, he said “no music; just sound design.” I couldn’t have been happier. Here’s the product, a sleek spec for OXO kitchen ware.
Last year I scored a film called Obey The Giant, which is the first biopic film about Shepard Fairey. After almost a year of festival drama and other shit, the director Julian Marshall is finally releasing it on April 15th via internets everywhere. Be sure to check my soundtrack, which pulls influence from modern electronic, ambient, punk, and even a little classical.
Cambridge rapper CeeDee is only 17 years old, but I’ve never seen a rapper work in the studio so efficiently. When we had our first session last Saturday he came in, had all his verses memorized, and recorded three songs very well in about 2 1/2 hours. We recently interviewed him over at the blog I write for, Cypher League, and he speaks and spits like a guy way beyond his years. He is affiliated with Cambridge’s Fast Life collective. I’ll be recording, mixing, and mastering his entire next tape.
HNDMD has released my debut track for the label on their Bandcamp!
I met B∩MSTEAD last year while travelling to Rhode Island to work on the Obey The Giant score. He blew me away with his music and I’ve been following his output ever since.
This track dropped today on Belgian Man Records. I’ll let it speak for itself.
DC rapper Skinny is a long time friend who I have collaborated with on multiple projects, and he has graciously offered to let me provide the final touch on his upcoming mix tape “Smoke Kings Volume II: Dope // Sick.” I can’t express how excited I am to be a part of this project.
I’m excited to announce that I will be part of the Together Festival, Boston’s premiere electronic music and arts festival May 13th-19th.
