I had the pleasure of performing alongside Rav-E at Non Stop Bhangra, which is a high energy monthly event in San Francisco. Rav-E plays the dhol and DJ's for the collective...and we jammed out on some dancehall infused bhangra vibes in a dhol vs beatbox session. He is showcasing his versatility here launching his production via this new video. Have a look and read below for more info. It's hard to put into words how fun and inspiring Non Stop Bhangra is, but you will for sure get a taste here! Much respect.
IN THE NOW, my collab with Grasp The Erro is out today on Bombeatz Ink.
Purchase the release on Beatport here. Grasp's dark and deep bassline goes over my vocals in a subtle yet eery manner. I went in the direction of feeling alienated and introspective as I was writing the lyrics. In the end, what surfaced was a vision to just live in the moment regardless of backwards or forward motions.
This life's right on track
Used to wish time would speed up
You can't rush progress
Teaching myself to live in the now
When I think life should slow down
It's a gradual process
Live in the now...
The second track on the release, Whitness is more of a dance floor roller which rounds out the EP nicely. We are very excited that it's finally out.
Big respect to Actors, an indie new wave band outta Vancouver. I've been really digging their Post Traumatic Love song as of late, and they have it up for free download.
Woodhead did a slick remix of the tune as well. The drums add a bit more of dance feel to the song while not taking anything away from the vibe. Great to see all the artists crossing over in our city right now...

It feels great to take beatboxing into a new realm. At my shows it was almost like people understood a bit more of what was going on when I broke it down by doing the sounds vocally and on the pads. Looking forward to posting more clips and gig footage very soon.
