I am an ambitious, self reliant asset to any team I have joined in the past & will continue to be toward any future relationships I will have the opportunity to work with. Capable of navigating the many different genres of music including the sub categories of hip-hop, many years of experience has transformed me from a hip-hop fan into a well oiled machine production wise & a respected artist on the underground scene to the more mainstream side. I am excited to work with new artists, and still highly driven to keep the legends reinventing themselves. I have made lots of allies out of the very artists I idolized as a young man, and continue to broaden my contacts with each opportunity. Many of these artists have become friends who i have maintained a reciprocal relationship with, and are a phone call away from collaborating on new exciting endeavors. I own lots of production/ recording equipment & am well versed in pro tools/MPC hardware/Adobe Photoshop to name a few.
I was hired to produce records from the actual beats, to recording vocals and mixing records for artists such as Nature, Kool G Rap, Ali Vegas and many others in which DCM added to their arsenal. I also used Adobe Photoshop to create artwork/logos for several projects & assisted in booking live performances for many of the artists they provide digital asset management for.
My company Orena Records was formed to create my debut album "Each Dawn I Die" which was released under Fat Beats distribution. Production on the album includes Dj Premier, Buckwild & a Kool G Rap feature. These songs were released initially on Vinyl as singles, and upon selling out of vinyl we pressed up CDs & began our digital run. The album is considered an underground classic.
Since that project I have released many others & have also done countless features and produced for several well known artists.
I have experience in touring also as of last year when I joined Apathy and Celph Titled on a west coast tour for his project "The Widow's Son" which I was involved in opening up for the main act (Apathy) & organizing tour support.
This year I will be releasing my next projects: one album entitled "God Laughs" entirely produced by 88-Keys (who produced for Kanye West, Jay-Z, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, SIA, Action Bronson, Frank Ocean, etc) ... and another project I am currently working on with Erick Sermon.
Assisted Erick Sermon in completing his project "Vernia", and came up with a game plan in accordance with Deep Concepts Media who controls their digital assets including music videos, youtube content, and all music streaming. I will be working with them on Erick's newest project which is a compilation of all of Hip-Hops favorite Duos (Styles P & Jadakiss, M.O.P., Redman & Method Man, EPMD, etc)
I also brought in a lot of business as far as people seeking production or features from Erick Sermon & Rockwilder.
