Our very first mix tape has just been released!
Featuring 10 great songs by various talented artists from around the country.
So I went ahead and turned this He Is We song, All About Us, into some acoustic hip hop. I added a piano and a simple bass track behind the guitar, along with a few other bits. She sings during the hook.
I sped it up to a more manageable tempo.
I’m back on my acoustic hip hop thing. There’s, of course, an acoustic guitar, along with an electric guitar and a synth lead later on in the song.
The drums are fairly simple, which I think compliments the rhythm of the guitar.
I also threw a few 808′s in there for you, so I hope the low end doesn’t overpower the rest of the instruments!
I hope you enjoy.
Here’s another very simple guitar instrumental. Not too short this time, as a few of our fans expressed that the 1 Page Letter song was a bit too short. So I tried to make it the typical three-minute length song.
I like my complicated compositions sometimes, but I still believe that the simple stuff can be very effective.
So you won’t hear any special effects, not too many drops or instruments at all. This song is pretty much a few guitar licks and a few drums behind that.
3 verses that are almost identical, repetitive flow, simple structure.
I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for listening!

This little funky thing I did recently. I had lots of fun with this. If you’re a fan of Daft Punk, you should dig this kind of sound. Or if you’re just into funky, feeling-good kind of stuff, you should like this one.
Party, have a good time!

This is a very special song that I put together for a very special somebody.
I decided to dedicate this song to someone on YouTube who totally hates me and every musical thing that I do. So while I have their attention, I thought I’d write a little tune especially for them.
The whole ‘being chased’ theme comes from the feeling of trying to be chased away from what I love to do the most. Unfortunately, I won’t be quitting anytime soon.
Always follow your dreams. No matter what stands in your way.
This is a hip hop instrumental with some minor ethnic influence. This song has quite a nice groove.

There’s really no story behind this song, rather my long time love for rock music influenced this production. From beginning to end, whenever I listen to this music, I can’t help but feel like I’ve come a long way. So I called it All Growed Up.
The most important thing is I hope you enjoy listening to this.
Hola, it’s me again.
So the feeling I immediately get from this song is sitting in a coffee shop or a cafe downtown somewhere. It’s just the vibe I get when I’m in the city on a nice day and I feel good, people walking by, sounds of life behind me, and some good music playing from above.
Kinda makes you want to snap your fingers or clap or something.
So I went ahead and ran with that feeling by adding some cafe shop sounds behind the music.
The effects you’ll hear are of a shop opening up for the day and the employees getting the machines ready, some coffee brewing, etc.
I hope you enjoy!
