*Attention* Any artists with questions regarding the demo instrumentals in the music section can contact me via e-mail at NiceBeats1982@Yahoo.com or through AIM: VanillaNice1982 I was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1982. I moved to upstate New York in 1987. I have been writing lyrics sence I was in third grade and have been making beats for almost four years. In addition, I have been a D.J. for eight years under the alias of "D.J. Uh-Oh" in notable clubs such as Johnny D's, Hurricane Billiards, and Club Escape. I am currently out of school; however, I plan on returning to Corning Community College for my second year. I'm not a part of any specific band or group. However, I have worked with many local artists and even shared the stage with Lil Flip! I make a living selling instrumentals and occasionaly ghost-writing for different artists.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
I just recently, was part of an opening act for Lil' Flip on October 22, 2005 at "Club Escape" in Binghamton, New York. I have also performed live on numerous occasions at the now closed "Hurricane Billiards" and dozens of local house parties.
Your musical influences
I grew up listening to west coast hip-hop as a teenager but, when hip-hop began to re-surface on the east coast I began to listen to Gangstarr, Canibus, and M.O.P. (my favorite artists)

The Akai MPC-2000-XL, various keyboards, and the Boss BR-1180 for recording vocals.
Anything else?
