Des Rocs “Hvy Mtl Drmr” video

Des Rocs "Hvy Metal Drmr" video

Finally. The video premiere for Des Rocs “Hvy Mtl Drmr” is here making it’s debut on Clash magazine last week. This has been a passion project of mine for awhile now which I’ve been been producing and mixing with Ken Lewis (Katalyst).

It feels so great to finally be getting this out there for people to hear. After being holed up in the studio working on this project for over the past 6 months, sometimes you start to go mad and wonder if anything will ever come out and see the light of day. Nothing can be more heart breaking than working on a  project or great song and it just dies a lonely death on your computer. That’s the type of stuff that makes people want to quit the music industry.

“Hevy Mtl Drmr” is a rock influenced song but with a modern twit to it. Almost a Jack White feel. I think Des Rocs is going to be filling a much needed void in rock music so many    songs to come out soon for this project. Can’t wait to show you.

 

“Rounds” K Michelle

 

I produced and mixed the song “Rounds” on K Michelle’s new album (Atlantic Records) that came out today with my production partner Ken Lewis and Bangallure.

Special shoutout to my good friend Bangallure for breathing life into the music on this one. Bangallure’s been sending me music for over 3 years and no matter how many times things didn’t work out with whatever artist we were working on, he never quit sending me music. Just shows you how much perseverance can payoff. So a huge congrats. I’m sure there will be many more to come. Drive does pay off!

 

“Baby It’s Over” by Mani Hoffman feat Matt Hartke

Rarely do I have the opportunity to work with good friends on a song just for the fun of it. The song posted below is one of those. Written by Mani Hoffman and Matt Hartke (two well established artists already on the indie front), this song came about with no purpose, no hidden agenda. Really just goofing around. Kind of the best way songs are written in my mind. Just writing a song because you want too. Knowing you won’t have some political minefield to go through if you were trying to shop it to a major label artist.

The beat is one of my favorite instrumentals I’ve ever done with Ken Lewis as a Katalyst production. It’s got that old soul vibe that I love so much. Almost reminds me of something Gnarls Barkley would do. Produced and mixed both by us.

 

 

Lorde “Sober”

 

Lorde "Sober"I did some drum programming on the song “Sober’ off the new Lorde album. It was a small role but extremely proud to be a part of this record. I wore her first album out just as a fan . If I had it on vinyl that thing would look like it had been through a hurricane..

The album seems to have a lot of buzz going for it. I’m pretty confident it’ll live up to the hype. She’s too talented not too. Jake Antenoff produced. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
