I've been doing this music thing professionally for a while now, but I've been surrounded by music all my life. I was raised in a house that played everything from Sam Cook and Miles Davis to Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Classical music and Salsa (and everything in between). I played the saxaphone and french horn in middle school ( I was a soloist on the french horn, holla atcha boy lol), up until high school. Around the same time I was also introduced to D.J.'ing by a d.j. from D.C. named D.J. Ichiban. Even though I was pretty good at both the sax and french horn, I became obsessed with D.J.'ing and began to focus more on that than my middle school band. I listened to the radio everyday at 5 o'clock and 9 pm to hear the radio d.j.s do live mixshows on the radio. I grew up on D.J. Ceelo, D.J. Iran, D.J. Sixth Sense, D.J. QicSilver (The white one, no disrespect to the black one lol) and D.J. Exclusive. I would mimic their sets on my stereo and create my own mixtapes. I didnt have the bread for turntables back then so I broke my stereo so I could overdub and fade, and I also figured out how to scratch on it too. Genious level shit lol. Eventually, I got some money and grabbed some turntables and a mixer. Around age 15 I started branching out into recording, and eventually beat making. That quickly became another obsession. I made beats day and night and would skip school, parties, and other less important shit to stay up in the lab and bang out joints. Once I felt I was good enough, I hit the streets with a beat tape and sought out to find an artist to work with. I would just walk up to anybody who looked like they could spit and would just be like " Spit something, Im a producer" (My approach has changed and gotten a lil more professional since Ive gotten a lil older lol) Eventually I came across Shakklez, the HOTTEST NIGGA SPITTIN'. PERIOD.We did a few albums worth of material and a mixtape during my last few years of school and then eventually I left West V for Arizona to go to engineering school. While I was out there I realized that engineering was cool, but making beats was my thing. I made beats and engineered for a lot of west coast artists while I was there and got my productions credits up. After school I turned down two internships to start my own production company called Ontrak Productions ( Ive since changed it to Ontrak Music Group). Back then the company was a full recording studio and also specialized in production. Some past clients include Domination (formerly of G-Unit, now Silver Back Gorrillas), Chic Raw (Top Shottas), Enterprise Car Rental ( yeah, the Rent-a-Car place lol) and a number of local artists ( damn near everyone that did anything with music from my town lol). Currently, I've closed the studio to the public to focus on my own production and artists ( I know, Im a selfish bastard). For any inquiries about beats hit me up at www.myspace.com/alistenmusic. Hope you enjoy my work and the works of my company and artists. One.
