I played Low End Theory a few years ago with Anderson .Paak and have since been obsessed with his music. It’s just too good, he touches on the same stuff I try to with my Dreams in Static music. #CurtisMayfield x #SamCooke 👊🏽. Also, we got behind the record on Anderson .Paak’s new album, ‘Oxnard’ with my new company, Slay Sonics . It’s one of the most anticipated albums of the year, and it’s finally here! .Paak tells Billboard it’s the album he’s dreamed of making since he was in high school…. Continue Reading
Here’s a vintage photo of my Savta (grandma) and Sabba (grandpa). My family originates from Yemen, where my ancestors had lived for close to 2,000 years. Nearly 100 years ago, my Grandmother’s side of the family decided to move to Adis Ababa, Ethiopia and then to Israel, in 1933 (Southern Syria/Mandate Palestine at the time). On my Grandfather’s side, our family emigrated to Israel in 1924. Jews are indigenous to the Middle East, people need to get their facts right. So many folks throw around anti-Semitic rhetoric acting like Israel… Continue Reading
I saw Banksy’s hateful poster that promotes division. We are pro people (pro Israeli and pro Palestinian), but that poster was disgusting and didn’t promote anything positive and will not bring any good. I worked on this with my friend Sey x Yes as a response, something positive, something hopeful, something that shows the diversity and reality. Now more than ever, we need to come together, and push positivity, dialogue, solutions, not hate and division which graphic propaganda and misinformation does not promote. That poster reminded me of what Hitler commissioned,… Continue Reading
On my way to see these two and do a story on them, and I couldn’t be more excited! The only Beastie I haven’t met yet is sir Ad-rock, so I’m incredibly stoked, as they are the single biggest influence on all the music, art and film that I do.

Playing my mom my next songs in the car and she goes, “I love it, but what do you do with all them, do you make money with it, do people even listen to it?” lol… I’m like, well, some tv shows and movies and some people on Spotify, but mainly me over and over as I produce and mix… For those that have mixed a track and are obsessive, you know exactly what I’m talking about… For everyone else, check out The Bancs Music Playlist on Spotify and Apple Music.
Whoa, I completely forgot about the Hebrew Garbage Pail Kids!!! Good thing my kid is a nosey mofo and went through all the things in my old room 😜🙌🏽
I’m playing back the videos of my kid skating to my kid rn and he asks if I could add my song to it, and says “what about that last one you did that’s your best one yet, and I like the h2the ones a lot..” I freakin love this kid and his support 😉
My kids like, “I like this song” so I let him know it’s a song I made years ago and he turns to me and says, “whoa, music kinda gives me confidence!”
My kid goes, “wait, you’re going out tonight?” I said, “ya, a friends in town so gonna link up for a drink”. He goes , “ cool can you get me one for tomorrow, I’m gonna be thirsty”
My band, Bonhom , along with Jack White and Diplo all have albums coming out at midnight, totally unplanned, but if you listen to Jack White and Diplo’s albums at the same time you get the Bonhom album, enjoy!

I made the best album of my life with James Coleman and it comes out on the 23rd! We go by Bonhom and it’s called, “Love Is Not The End”… but I have to say the album I made with Levi Martinez x Akie Bermiss could also be it… that one is called “Part of the Machine” and we go by Dreams in Static … either way, much love to these guys, it’s been amazing, every moment of music with them!
