My music

This section of the Lofiles menu is divided to 2 sub sections. The first one is my music resume that contains music that I have either produced, written, mixed or did all of the above and showcases my New York 80`s alternative projects, The hip hop era, while I was mixing and producing, working as co producer on soul and R&B projects, and later on doing remix work, writing music for film and experimenting with music. My sound is mostly ragged, dirty and is never too “pretty” or over produced, as I had learned during my East coast Hip Hop days while working with the biggest names such as DJ Premier, Easy mo be, Guru, MC Lyte, Lord Finesse, and later on with multi platinum producers such as Troy Taylor & Charles Farrar and Axel Kroell.
The second subsection is music of my closest and dearest friends in New York, music I was afraid you are not going to get a second chance to listen to, some of those indie projects I was a part of or helped create.
