Smashtronauts

11 Jan

My friend/homie/partner in crime, Dru Decaro and I have been collaborators in many senses of the word. In 2008 we spearheaded a pro jam session at ‘The Viper Room’ and later ‘The House Of Blues’ every Sunday night. We had a band of sick nasty killers and we shed our asses off every week to devise crafty new setlists of timeless RnB and modern top 40. The House Band smoked, but what was so great about this night was that we had seasoned vets swinging through and sitting in like Bobby Brown and Tony Royster Jr.. Later on Dru and I helped build the Skeetox band with Dj Skee and Ryan Tomlinson. That band has been chronicled well in this blog, so I won’t retread it all here.

But lately we have been collaborating in a different sense: as producers. We have branded ourselves ‘The Smashtronauts’ as a production team. Soon, everybody will want to mess with the Smashtronauts.

Here is one of our first fruits, a song called ‘Future’ that we wrote and produced:

Expect to hear a lot more from the Smashtronauts soon.

Long SKEETOX Rehearsal Last Night, More Tonight

28 Jun

Last night we rehearsed HARD for Skeetox. It was almost laughably hard that we rehearsed. It was like studying for finals after a quarter of not trying that hard. We hit at 8 and left around 1, and there wasn’t much time for goofing off in between.

But this group is sounding sick. We have ludicrous transitions from song to unexpected song, and all kinds of filthy mashups on the agenda.

Rhianna and Chaka Khan?

Eminem and The Police?

No that's not me behind the keys, that Cash. My rig is to the right
