Current project: Conscious Postulate Chamber of Rudiments, is an amalgamation of different genres in a consortium of visual trajectories, head bobbing beats, ill basslines, vocal studies & rare grooves that represent the Hip-hop culture. The whole essence of this undertaking is to celebrate Hip-hop’s culture / tradition and create the audio aesthetics that we want through our creative influences. Abstract, Spoken word, Surreal, talkin’ drums, Jazz, Cubism, Funk, Latin, Afro-Cuban, Bossa Nova, Rock and other forms of sound and visual art will all be fused with Hiphop to achieve something that represents my concept.

Why this name?
it just came to me
Do you play live?
i play at different spots, it's been a struggle trying to push the authentic hiphop flavor, Cats out here in Philippines won't bother to trip on Main Source or even That whole KMD thing. whatmore with this type of sh*** that i'm creating and performing. But i get the good vibe from people that come from other genres like, electronica heads, goth, rock, Jazz and all sorts of heads.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
it opens up minds, gives us a taste of different flavors of music all over the world
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Why not
