I think in many cases, there were snippets or clips of music and film that scared and disturbed me greatly. I feel the music I make has a texture or at least reverberates the generalized fear and anxiety children face.
I grew up around ultra violent media, the dawn of the computer age and a community ravaged by crack cocaine and AIDS.
I feel that some of these images, feelings or sounds, never quite leave the subconscious mind. People speak of ghosts and the supernatural. What I surmise is that the human mind can be haunted. What is the difference between a civilized and uncivilized society? The Killers kill. No matter whom the killer is, it is murder. No one idea is better than another, no God more forgiving and no sense of heaven or nirvana will satiate our wanderlust. We give ourselves such a great deal of credit, when really, the animals are better than us. We create filth, crime and desperation. Animals merely, in an instinctual sense, just want to survive.

Sounds Like: Ghetto Gothic... Mash-Up's....Urban Horror...That's my sound. Really the bastard children of Metal, Hip-Hop and Electronica. We all grew up loving those genres and I believe the lines have blurred. So when I put a song out, I suppose there is a parameter of what to expect. However, my goal is cohesively blend all these genre's and artists I admired. It would be far too pretentious to sit here and try to compare myself to any of my heroes.
My career has only just begun, so day by day, the sound changes and I redefine who I am on an artistic level. I have dreams about producing a track with Bjork and Eazy E. I like combining the flavors and textures I have been exposed to.
Record Label: None (and it shall remain that way)
