Los Angeles Studio Work and Collaboration


Hey everyone, an update, the last couple of weeks, I’ve been in LA since NAMM, doing lots of meetings and business as well as studio things. :) I was in south central working on some hip-hop/rap beats for some super talented rappers and artists. And I’m working with my other clients on lots of cool new stuff in the works.


Up in silver lake, I’ve been working a lot on the Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 08 on a couple dozen new songs and concepts for various game and music projects. I’ve been having a lot of fun with all the things you can tweak, and just the cool sounds this thing makes in general. Super warm analog goodness. :) It’s been interesting and therapeutic to work through emotions with a synthesizer like this. I’ve also been able to get pages of new poems/lyrics and melodies completed. Making progress.


I’ve met so many new amazing artists and performers at CES and NAMM, and many collaborations are being worked out. I love working with fresh unknown and up-and-coming as well as obscure and avant-garde artists. So many great inspiring people out there in the world, creating beautiful art. Keep creating, stay inspired, never relent. – j :)
