Took my kid out for some Chinese and he asks me if fidget spinners were made in China. I said yea, and he goes, so are they making them in the back?

h2the Sector: AB Motion Graphics

I played my new h2the video/beat to my friend Natan Winkler and he told me it reminds him of ‘Ready Player One’, Ernest Cline’s novel that Steven Spielberg is turning into a movie. Click here to listen/watch! with visuals by UM

I was trying to explain to my kid that you can’t always get what you want. So, I said, “All I want to do right now is put on every Chaplin flick and make some pop corn and have some chocolate and watch all of them with you.” He goes, “yea, me too, that sounds awesome.” I’m like, “no, no my point is that we can’t do that…lol”.

Pre-Game and an old friend

Just got a message from an old high school friend of mine and he goes, “Fyi my almost 5 year old daughter loves pre-game. We listen to it in the car all the time.” So, i just replied, “This is the best thing I have ever heard in my life” and he continues, “She loves hip hop beats and quality instrumentals are few and far between. It’s really a piece of art and you should be really proud.” I’m so stoked right now, gonna make some more of this music….for… Continue Reading

MCA DAY

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since MCA passed. I’m not sure there is anyone who has inspired me artistically more than Adam Yauch. His approach to creating music, bringing people together for good, his humor, and his clever video production under the name Nathanial Hörnblowér all made me (and all my alter egos) who I am today. I met him in DC years ago and you could just feel the unique energy that was and will always be MCA.

Our Karma Music Video is Finally Out!

Was anxiously awaiting for the world to see this one! INFO: Marky Style & Guy Gabriel, the producers behind the smash, Karma, came to the US from Israel to make hits and that is exactly what they have been doing. Out of their studio in Los Angeles, the two teamed up with vocalist, Roxanne, for their latest single, “Karma” which opens on a trapped up Mediterranean riff and explodes into a pop sound with trap undertones. The music video, produced by Bancs Media’s Erez Safar and directed by Jonty Fine,… Continue Reading

Face in the Crowd

I’ve made a slew of tracks with people I haven’t met. I ended up making a few with Michael Grossman and a few with Nissim ניסים and one that included both of them along with Open Mike Eagle. Here is a remix of the one I did with Michael. David Handsman def murdered the remix on this one!!! Much thanks and blessings to everyone who’s been down to collab since day one. New Game: Remixed by Bancs

“If you look at our country’s history,” Aziz said, “change doesn’t come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people — and if day one is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen. Good luck.”
