Dew Tour

20 Aug

Last month I had the privilege of creating some music for The Dew Tour along with some of my fellow Build Destroy Music artists like Ian Osborne and THX. The Dew Tour is an extreme sports competition taking place in three locations and airing on NBC/NBC Sports. Dru and I got to contribute as the Smashtronauts and worked with Bucky Lasek to get input on the types of music skaters like to ride to.

The Dew Tour is airing on NBC over the next couple of months. Check out this link to see some of the videos featuring music that we scored. Ian Osborne scored the main title and he did a sweet job.

Check out some of the videos talking about the music used here.

And here is the video of Dru and I producing with Bucky Lasek:

Ghostbusters Dubstep Remix

6 Feb


Here is the latest creation from the Smashtronauts: An electro/dubstep take on the Ghostbusters theme. This is inspired by much of the glitch, electro and dubstep I’ve been listening to lately, especially Skrillex. Don’t cross the streams!

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.
