Zap Rack Performance Clip

Soooooo, I told myself I would start posting more short beat-performance videos. This is one I put together while working on an all new, layered drum rack. Working on the left-hand technique and testing out the stamina of my wrists, all in the name of good musics.
Enjoy!

Official “Hello Hi” Remix & Kickstarter Campaign

There’s an upcoming album being funded through Kickstarter right NOW with an official Okay Tony Beats remix lined up for the single! At the helm of this exciting project are singer/songwriter Bochan and producer Arlen Hart. From Bochan’s Facebook page:

Bochan has dedicated her life to spearheading and continuing to sow the seeds of the Neo-Cambodian musical breakout movement. By collaborating with adept pianist and producer, Arlen Hart, Bochan effortlessly bridges the East West gap with an inimitable, soulful yet sweet indie-pop vibe. She authentically draws on her dual country upbringing; combining influences from the ultra urban Oakland scene,coupled with her deep rooted Cambodian inspiration and fellowship, to create her infectious new sound.

Bochan grew up singing in her father’s Cambodian American bands. The evolution that Bochan witnessed (and took an active part in) is audible today in the ardent Cambodian music circuit, which has moved from Rock Roots to its current inception. Honoring, yet stepping bravely away from traditional style, she attempts to usher in a new musical age.

Make sure to check out the fascinating story behind the origins of the song and listen to a piece on Bochan featured on NPR’s Studio 360 through the Kickstarter page below:
